Singers Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani shared their excitement on social media after their favorite NFL team, the Arizona Cardinals, won thanks to a Hail Mary pass.
For the second week in a row, it looked like Arizona was about to drop yet another game at home that they shouldn’t have.
Playing against the Buffalo Bills, the Cardinals found themselves down three in the fourth quarter. The Bills had put together a scoring drive that ended with a Josh Allen to Stefon Diggs touchdown. That score gave the Bills a 30-26 lead with just 30 seconds left.
With their backs against the wall as the clock was running out, the Cardinals made magic happen. Quarterback Kyler Murray scrambled out to his left and lofted a deep shot into the end zone. Miraculously, Cardinals wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins came down with the ball giving them the win, 32-30.
Shelton, an avid Cardinals fan, posted an update to Twitter after the game, perhaps giving fans more information than they asked for. In his hilarious reply, the country star says “he died and came back to life,” among other things.
“My god @AZCardinals what a game!! Congrats!!! I died, came back to life, s— my pants and hyperextended my scrotum all in 30 seconds!!!!,” the country star wrote.
Hopkins was actually well-covered on the play by Buffalo’s secondary. However, that didn’t stop him from somehow coming down with the catch to propel Arizona to the thrilling win. Here’s a look at the play dubbed the “Miracle from Murray.”

To get Arizona in position for the Hail Mary attempt, Murray first completed a 14-yard pass to Andy Isabella. The next play, Murray and Hopkins were able to connect for a nine-yard gain that got the Cardinals to their own 48-yard line. After that was a nine-yard pass to Larry Fitzgerald that set up Arizona at the Buffalo 43-yard line. One play later, Murray came up clutch with the biggest play of his young career.
