The Arizona Cardinals did the improbable and came back from 20 points down in the second half to defeat the Las Vegas Raiders 29-23 in overtime.

The Cardinals outscored the Raiders 23-3 in the second half before corner Byron Murphy Jr. secured a scoop-and-score fumble recovery in overtime for the win.

Whether it was quarterback Kyler Murray’s scramble for the two-point conversion when he ran 84.9 yards total for the score, the fumble recovery that Murphy almost dropped before the end zone or the late offensive onslaught, social media reacted accordingly.

The mood heavily changed after the 20-0 deficit had Cardinals fans upset on Twitter with the result through the first six quarters of the season.

After a 44-21 defeat in Week 1 against the Kansas City Chiefs, Arizona was outscored 64-21 in those six quarters.

The win brings the Cardinals to 1-1 on the season. No team has made the playoffs in the past three years after starting 0-2.

Arizona will host the Los Angeles Rams for an NFC West divisional battle on Sunday at 1:25 p.m. on 98.7 FM Arizona’s Sports Station.
