The Arizona Cardinals got the victory over the New Orleans Saints on Thursday Night Football, but not everything was sunshine and rainbows on the winning team’s sideline. 

Cardinals QB Kyler Murray and Head Coach Kliff Kingsbury got into a heated argument, with Murray seen mouthing ‘Calm the f*** down” to Kingsbury after Arizona had to burn a timeout late in the second quarter.

The pair continued to have words with each other before Cardinals WR DeAndre Hopkins, his first game back from suspension, stepped in between the two as a peacemaker. After the game, Murray explained the heated moment, with Kingsbury also shedding light on the situation, Here’s what the two had to say, per Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.

“The clock was running down and we couldn’t have got off the play that we were trying to run,” Murray said. “So, it was, I guess it’s my fault. I’ll take it.” Murray was clearly trying to get his coach to calm down, also saying that he just wanted him to “chill out.” The Cardinals Head Coach called a panicked timeout in the second quarter of the 42-34 victory.

Kingsbury called the moment a “difference of opinion”, but then joked about it. It appears it was just two competitive individuals going at each other in the heat of the moment.
