Kingsbury's route to the Cardinals job was off the beaten path as well, having been fired from Texas Tech after a season-ending five-game losing streak resulted in a 5-7 finish. Murray had a debut to remember.
The Cardinals were portrayed as a team that made a valiant rally to get a tie, led by rookie quarterback Kyler Murray.
The Lions respond with a 33-yard field goal from Matt Prater. They can't end the game and settle on Zane Gonzalez' fourth field goal of the game to give them the overtime lead. David Johnson benefited too; he hauled in six passes for 55 yards and a score (as a receiver).
Hockenson is also the first Lions tight end to have more than 100 yards receiving since 2012. Murray found Christian Kirk on the 2-point conversion to tie it with 43 seconds remaining.
The points with Arizona at home are tempting, but I'm not overly confident in backing a rookie quarterback making his regular season debut against a Detroit team that's better than what we saw in the preseason, especially on defense. He ultimately ended things on a high note by throwing for 308 yards and two touchdowns on 29-for-54 passing.More news: Kelly Clarkson Speaks About Encouraging Taylor Swift To Re-record Her Songs
Detroit looked totally in control until midway through the fourth period.
The third quarter wasn't much better; Murray was 3 for 9, the Cardinals had 42 yards and trailed 24-6.
Arizona's Fitzgerald, in his 16th National Football League season, finished with eight catches for 113 yards. Yeah, the game ended in a 27-27 tie. It ends with a Matthew Stafford touchdown pass to rookie tight end T.J. Hockensen from 23 yards.
For all that happened on Sunday in Arizona, Stafford was far from the problem. He did not throw an interception but lost a fumble on a Chandler Jones sack.

Detroit stifled the run and batted down three Kyler Murray passes.
Given how bad Murray and the Cardinals were for three quarters, they'll take it.
The Lions (6-10in 2018) were a disappointment last season and the heat is on head coach Matt Patricia.
It was a collapse, a completely brutal one, for the Lions.More news: Miami vs. North Carolina odds
