TAMPA, Fla. — There’s being safe with the football and then there’s Arizona Cardinals rookie quarterback Kyler Murray.

Murray set an NFL record for most pass attempts by a rookie without an interception in the first quarter of Sunday’s game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers by throwing his 177th consecutive pass attempt without a pick. The previous record of 176 was held by Oakland’s Derek Carr in 2014 and Dallas’ Dak Prescott in 2016.

Murray set the new record on an 11-yard pass to Larry Fitzgerald on the first play of the Cardinals’ second possession Sunday. Murray finished the first quarter with 182 consecutive attempts without an interception.

Murray hasn’t thrown an interception since Sept. 29 against the Seattle Seahawks in Week 4. Murray broke Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Gardner Minshew‘s 2019 record for most attempts without an interception of 163 last week against the San Francisco 49ers.
