Kyler Murray got slapped the F out.
Las Vegas, Nevada police are investigating an incident that a fan at Allegiant Stadium slapped Arizona Cardinals QB Kyler Murray in the face following the Arizona Cardinals’ 29-23 overtime win over the Las Vegas Raiders, via the Associated Press. The incident went down shortly after Byron Murphy Jr.’s walk-off touchdown to seal the miraculous comeback for the Cardinals. Kyler Murray could be seen running on the field without his helmet and celebrating with fans. Video shows Kyler Murray celebrating with fans before reacting to what appeared to be him being slapped in the face.

Judging by the video, even at a slowed down pace, it’s hard to tell if the guy was just reaching over to touch him, or was it an intentional slap in the face. Really hard to tell if there was intent behind that or not. Police spokesman Larry Hadfield confirmed there was a battery complaint made, with an allegation stating “a spectator at the stadium struck a professional football player.”
An investigation is reportedly ongoing and so far no suspect has been identified.
Outside of the slap, it was a huge night for Kyler Murray, as his Arizona Cardinals overcame a 20-0 halftime deficit to earn their first win of the year.
