Things were heading south in a hurry for the Arizona Cardinals at the start of Sunday Night Football against the Seattle Seahawks.

Russell Wilson’s opening drive of the game was a breeze, taking Seattle 75 yards over six plays and 3:01 for a touchdown. After a three-and-out by Arizona’s offense, the Seahawks went 43 more yards for a field goal, and they were one Greg Olsen foot away from being up 14-0 after two offensive drives.

Arizona finally got some sort of response, and it took two critical third-down conversions, the second of which was a 35-yard strike from quarterback Kyler Murray to wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins.

Hopkins made a terrific play on the ball, earning a Twitter nod from noted sports fan and NBA champion LeBron James.

That’s some good ole’ greatness appreciating fellow greatness on the timeline.

Cornerback Patrick Peterson got his signature celebration in with Hopkins as well.

Best of all, Murray gifted us a new meme template when the replay showed a huge smile on his face when he saw Hopkins down the field.

Same, Kyler. Same.
