Kyler Murray pulled a Carson Wentz in Arizona’s playoff game against the Rams. In this case, that’s a bad thing.

The Colts quarterback had a tendency to occasionally attempt to avoid a sack by tossing the football away with his left hand. Sometimes, it’d fall into the arms of a defender.

Murray did the same thing in the second quarter on Monday night in the Cardinals’ wild card game against the Rams. It didn’t end well.

Twitter was quick to make jokes.
