While Tom Brady predictably gifted members of the Buccaneers with the sunglasses he promotes, Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray came up with a unique gift idea for the offensive linemen who keep him upright.
You can own only so many different pairs of Bluetooth earbud headphones, speakers, sunglasses and backpacks, but how many guys out there can say they have original artwork of themselves? Well, now all eight Cardinals linemen can.
It’s been a solid year for the Cardinals line, who rank 8th in the league with 22 sacks allowed. The line is tied for third best in the NFL, allowing just 21 hits on Murray.

Add it all up, and you have the Cardinals hanging onto the 7th seed in the NFC. The 49ers come to town on Saturday before a Week 17 showdown with the Rams. The Cardinals can clinch a playoff spot with a win over the 49ers and a Bears loss or tie to the Jags.
PlayoffStatus.com has all possible seeding scenarios and how things would play out. What’s clear at this point is that the Cardinals can’t win the division, but they could finish as high as the fifth seed or they could eliminate themselves from the playoffs entirely.
And those guys holding new artwork of themselves now need two more strong weeks in order to cash in those playoff checks.
