Caleb Williams versus Kyler Murray in NFL Week 9 could be explosive

Caleb Williams versus Kyler Murray in NFL Week 9 could be explosive

USC football fans appreciate how good Caleb Williams is as a quarterback. They also recognize how good Lincoln Riley is as a developer of quarterbacks. Those two realities converge in Week 9 of the 2024 NFL season. Caleb Williams will face Kyler Murray in a battle of Lincoln Riley-coached NFL signal-callers when the Chicago Bears visit the Arizona Cardinals on Nov. 3 in Glendale.

Caleb Williams and Kyler Murray both won Heisman Trophies under Lincoln Riley. They both were No. 1 NFL draft picks. Baker Mayfield is the other Lincoln Riley-coached quarterback to win the Heisman and be a No. 1 pick. Jalen Hurts was a Heisman runner-up. You can bet that Lincoln Riley — who will coach USC against Washington on Nov. 2 — will fly home to Los Angeles and then set aside his Sunday afternoon on Nov. 3 to watch this game on television. We will be watching, too. Where will the Bears and Cardinals be in the standings when this Week 9 game arrives?

One other added note about this game: Caleb Williams faces Jayden Daniels and the Washington Commanders in Week 8 on Oct. 27. That means he will face Heisman-winning quarterbacks in consecutive weeks this coming season.
