What were the top tweets and hottest takes of the day?

Twitter is always a fun site to see for #content and all sorts of tweets, GIFs and takes.

And as such, NFL Twitter is the best way to read instant reactions. So what were the reactions to #AZvsTEN??

The game started with a bang…

Chandler Jones has 99.0 career sacks, and 63.0 in 70 career games in Arizona.

— Arizona Cardinals (@AZCardinals) September 12, 2021

Welcome back, Chandler Jones!

Chandler Jones has THREE sacks in the first quarter

Chandler Jones going for DPOY already!! My goodness!! 3 sacks in the 1st

— LeBron James (@KingJames) September 12, 2021

Kyler, of course, was doing Kyler things in addition to his all-world pass rusher:

Holy wow Murray

— T-Rex (@RyanTerrana) September 12, 2021

Kyler looking like Tom Brady on that play. Reading the defense pre snap and picking them apart. Love to see it.

— BurnInHellSports (@BurnInHellAZ) September 12, 2021

And then came…the play:

QB1 (!)

— Darren Urban (@Cardschatter) September 12, 2021


Kyler Murray is a freak

— Yup (@SCoxFB) September 12, 2021

Good lord, Kyler Murray

— Ted Nguyen (@FB_FilmAnalysis) September 12, 2021


— Max (@maxmcc11) September 12, 2021

Hop/Kirk and Moore all made plays!

DeAndre Hopkins with one of the sickest toe taps you’ll ever see for the TD.

What a wizard.

— Brad Evans (@NoisyHuevos) September 12, 2021

Hopkins is unbelievable lol

— Serg Caraveo (@SergingSuns) September 12, 2021

Target Nuk in the red zone and good things will happen

— Brendon Kleen (@BrendonKleen14) September 12, 2021

Who needs pre-snap discipline when you’ve got DeAndre Hopkins?

— Luke Lapinski (@LukeLapinski) September 12, 2021

Kirk went off for two touchdowns, too:

It looked like Kyler Murray’s pass to Christian Kirk was either tipped or Murray’s arm was hit. Still completed a 22-yard pass to Christian Kirk.

— Josh Weinfuss (@joshweinfuss) September 12, 2021

Christian Kirk said the over the shoulder td was exact replica of a play in practice last week. Cover 0 and Murray tossed it up, Td

— Kent Somers (@kentsomers) September 12, 2021

This is art. Kyler drops it in a bucket and the ability to locate and track the football by Christian Kirk is beautiful.

kliff kingsbury, now: “when I called all those receiver screens the past two years that went nowhere, this is what I saw in my head”

— Chris B. Brown (@smartfootball) September 12, 2021

We got to see Arizona’s newest playmakers…and a few old ones as there were plenty of comments about Kliff and Kyler:

three penalties and kliff burning timeouts early we’re back baby

— Kellan Olson (@KellanOlson) September 12, 2021

Even some commentary with “the play” on Kliff’s future:

Kyler Murray is going to single-handedly save Kliff’s

— Austin Gayle (@PFF_AustinGayle) September 12, 2021

Credit where credit’s due: This is Kliff’s best game as a playcaller, and it’s not particularly close.

Also helps that Kyler and Hopkins are superhumans.

— Max (@maxmcc11) September 12, 2021

Kliff either gave in a play late or changed the play and didn’t give a personnel grouping with it near the EZ.

Cardinals subbed late and had to burn a TO. Week 1 baby!

— Nate Tice (@Nate_Tice) September 12, 2021

You can be mad at Kliff for the penalties but also his team apparently has self-accountability so that will have to show up soon.

But in other Kliff news, that was a nicely called drive with fun little things we did not see in past years.

— Kevin Zimmerman (@KZimmermanAZ) September 12, 2021

Alright #Birdgang, @CardsSubreddit,

It is time.


— Blake Allen Murphy (@blakemurphy7) September 12, 2021

The defense (and Chandler Jones) OWNED the Titans.

Give Simmons credit for stepping in front of that oncoming truck (Derrick Henry)

— Bo Brack (@BoBrack) September 12, 2021

Isaiah Simmons sawing Derrick Henry down. Not something I expected to type today.

— Nate Tice (@Nate_Tice) September 12, 2021

Byron Murphy has been all over Julio Jones in this first half.

OK, there’s been some grabbing involved, but he’s been huge for the Cardinals so far.#AZvsTEN

— Sam Monson (@PFF_Sam) September 12, 2021

More love for Simmons’ INT:

Simmons stole that INT from Budda

— Jess Root (@senorjessroot) September 12, 2021

The Cardinals held Titans RB Derrick Henry to 8 rushing yards in the 1st half, his fewest as a starter in a 1st half since Week 9 of 2019 against the Panthers (4), per @ESPNStatsInfo.

— Josh Weinfuss (@joshweinfuss) September 12, 2021

Yeah, the Titans looked like an absolute trainwreck and a planecrash on offense mixed in one…

Titans passing up a 4th-and-1 down 18 points so they can miss a 45-yard field goal <<<<<<<<<<<<<

— Rodger Sherman (@rodger) September 12, 2021

Cardinals with complete disrespect for the Titans’ play fakes and Tanne flirting with either getting broken in half or turnover sixing every time he drops back

— Patrick Daugherty (@RotoPat) September 12, 2021

Julio Jones doesn’t like the start the Titans are off to so he’s trying to show the Cardinals he’d fit right in with a brain dead penalty. Playing the long game

— Scott Howard (@ScottHoward42) September 12, 2021

The situation is bad enough for the #Titans to play their first-round pick.

Caleb Farley is at left corner.

— Paul Kuharsky (@PaulKuharskyNFL) September 12, 2021

We have an entire subsection of tweets dedicated to guffawing at Chandler Jones…

Chandler Jones is on pace to collect 204 sacks this season.

— Adam Green (@theAdamGreen) September 12, 2021

Chandler Jones, you absolute beast.

— Kyle Odegard (@Kyle_Odegard) September 12, 2021

Has an NFL player ever received a contract extension at halftime of a game?

— Vince Marotta (@Vincemarotta) September 12, 2021

Chandler Jones is playing like his ass is on fire. This is wonderful.

— Max (@maxmcc11) September 12, 2021

I’ll say it again. CHANDLER JONES is going for DPOY!!!! My GOODNESS

— LeBron James (@KingJames) September 12, 2021

And finally on the Chan front, this tweet which was sent with an entire quarter left to play…

Chandler Jones has been named NFC Defensive Player of the Week by the National Football League for his performance in the Cardinals win over the Tennessee Titans.

— John Gambadoro (@Gambo987) September 12, 2021

That’s all for now, Birdgang. Sending you off with the only score that really matters…
