Kyler Murray and DeAndre Hopkins made their triumphant returns from injury Sunday, and the Arizona Cardinals' dynamic duo didn't wait long to make their impact felt.

Murray hit Hopkins on a 21-yard touchdown less than five minutes into Sunday's game against the Chicago Bears after each had been out since Week 8. That gave the Cardinals an early 7-0 lead, playing at a rainy and cold Soldier Field.

Initially, the pass was ruled incomplete by the line judge before the officials got together and correctly ruled it a touchdown. Hopkins did extend his arm against the defensive back through much of the route, but that was not flagged.

The Cardinals have gone 2-1 without their prolific passing combo, and each used the bye week to get healthy for this conference battle.

It was the first TD connection between them since the week before Halloween in the Cardinals' 31-5 win over the Houston Texans.
