As top running back at Stevenson High School in the Chicago suburb of Lincolnshire, Illinois, Kyle Brandt would strut down the halls in his letterman jacket and blast Pearl Jam from his eight-disc CD changer as he drove around in his Jeep.

Kyle Murray Knows Cardinals Taking Next Step ‘Starts With Me’

The Arizona Cardinals went into their bye week with a 5-2 record, certainly well positioned for a strong second half of the season. A subsequent 34-31 loss to the Miami Dolphins was emphatically erased after a walkoff 32-30 victory against the Buffalo Bills on November 15.
