Can Cardinals’ Murray Catch Vick On NFL’s Career Rushing Yards List?
Fact Checked by Young Ruth

Every Sunday, Kyler Murray, the fifth-year quarterback for the Arizona Cardinals, showcases exceptional dual-threat abilities that set him apart from most other NFL quarterbacks.

The former Heisman Trophy winner and first overall draft pick has shown a remarkable ability to excel in all aspects of the game for the Cardinals. He effortlessly delivers accurate passes and has the speed to outrun opposing defenses on any play.

During a period of time, Arizona betting apps were primarily focused on the Cardinals due to his influence.

Michael Vick’s career rushing record for quarterbacks is currently at 6,109 yards. However, with the increasing number of dual-threat quarterbacks in the NFL, there are several current players who are on track to surpass his record.

Yengols.com analyzed the probability of each current quarterback reaching over 6,109 rushing yards in their career, factoring in their current rushing stats, average career length for quarterbacks, and possible regression.

Is Murray able to catch Michael Vick?

We are currently waiting to assess the 26-year-old’s recovery from his ACL tear before making any additional decisions.

At the beginning of the 2023 season, Murray has accumulated a total of 2,204 rushing yards in 57 regular season games, resulting in an average of 38.7 yards per game.

If Murray continues at his current rate, he will average around 657.3 rushing yards per season. To reach Vick’s career rushing yardage of 6,109 yards, Murray would need to maintain that pace for approximately six straight seasons.

Given Murray’s career rushing yardage average of 551 yards per season, it will be a significant challenge to expect him to improve his performance on the ground, especially following a recent injury.

Murray’s odds of surpassing Vick on the NFL’s all-time rushing yardage list are at +9000, mainly due to his lower ranking compared to other current quarterbacks. For instance, Lamar Jackson of Baltimore has odds of -2000, Justin Fields of Chicago at -200, Jalen Hurts of Philadelphia at -175, and Josh Allen of Buffalo at +110.

The Cardinals are entering the season with low expectations, as BetMGM Arizona has given them odds of +20000 to win the Super Bowl, tying them for last in the NFL.
