The Arizona Cardinals defense kept the score close and picked-off three interceptions, but the offense couldn’t thread the needle as the Houston Texans were victorious, 21-16.

On social media, the “Bird Gang” were ecstatic after their 25-23 win over the Atlanta Falcons last week, but it was a different story today.

Quarterback Kyler Murray was trending on X (formerly Twitter) after the game in Texas concluded based on his performance.

Throughout the game, Cardinals fans were going back and forth on different opinions and thoughts on how he did.

Throwing for 214 yards and completing 20-30 passes, the Arizona faithful either pointed out his flaws or thought he did fine, no compromise.

Furthermore, there was an agenda towards Cards’ cornerback Marco Wilson.

On 1st and 10 at the ARZ 40, Texans quarterback C.J. Stroud threw a pass to wide receiver Tank Dell for a touchdown.

However, Wilson was the one defending Dell before Wilson lost track of what route Dell was running before he scored.

Despite the loss, Cardinals fans did praise the defense for keeping them in the game and having three interceptions.

Stroud threw right to Arizona safety Jalen Thompson, linebacker Krys Barnes and cornerback Antonio Hamilton.

The Texans would punt towards the end of the game on 4th and 1 punter Cameron Johnston kicking the ball 50 yards to the ARZ 19.

As it was in the air, the ball ended up hitting the back of a Texans player who was contested by Hamilton.

Controversially, the referees went to a review due to not knowing who the ball hit off of.

Moments later, the officials announced that it hit Hamilton instead of the Texan, and therefore, Houston would gain possession again after hey gathered the ball from the deflection.

Following the dramatic call, the “Bird Gang” were not happy.

While the majority of the Cardinals faithful blamed either the offense or officiating, others blamed head coach Jonathan Gannon and his play-calling.

The Cardinals fall to 2-9 on the season and remain fourth place in the NFC West.

Returning home, Arizona face the Los Angeles Rams inside State Farm Stadium in Glendale on Nov. 26 at 2:05 p.m.
