Vikings’ Patrick Peterson Ridicules Kyler Murray With ‘Call of Duty’ Celebration

Kyler Murray’s focus appeared to take a major dip coming off the release of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II (Oct. 28). Former Cardinals shut-down cornerback Patrick Peterson relished his team’s win on Sunday by clowning Murray for his COD addiction in the Vikings’ 34-26 victory over Arizona.


After Vikings safety Harrison Smith got a pick on Murray, Peterson joined his team for an end-zone celebration and mimicked playing a video game as a not-so-subtle nod to Murray’s off-the-field gaming.

When asked about the apparent jab at Murray, Peterson played it off by claiming ignorance. “I think it’s called Call of Duty? I’m not much of a gamer. Heard it just came out,” Peterson told NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero.

Kyler had a fair game in Week 8: throwing for 326 yards and three touchdowns but throwing two errant interceptions when the Cardinals needed him the most.

Murray’s game has been coincidentally lackluster during double-XP Call of Duty tournament weekends and following new releases of the famed first-person shooter.

Peterson also called out Arizona for booting him out of Glendale after 10 seasons together.

“I’ve been told a lot of things about me with the other organization,” Peterson added in postgame interviews. “Getting fan mail from the owner saying that I can’t tackle, I’m old, I lost it.”

  1. some teams, like AZ have well known poor ownership. they perpetually underperform. giving Kyler the huge contract is more evidence. even HOF players like Fitzgerald and Waner, plus a HC like BA couldn’t get them a SB. Prob won’t happen in the next 2-3 decades either.

  2. PP promised two interceptions, got none, but did get rolled by Rondale Moore scoring a touchdown, while PP was left holding a piece of his undershirt. Also, he was covering #3 and #4 receivers. Nice tackling, too. Sad, he was popular in AZ, but didn’t warrant what he wanted, and now is a bitter, declining, mediocre, classless individual.
