Kyler Murray Shows Off Acting Skills

Quarterback said he wanted to 'up my game' in 'Heisman House' spot

Kyler Murray. Elite with his arm. Elite with his legs. Elite with his ... acting?

OK, maybe not.

Stiil, the Cardinals QB1 has acquitted himself well in the latest Heisman House commercial, which has been all over the place, especially on Saturdays during college football games. The spot, named "Anticipation," features Murray riding in a car with fellow Heisman winner Tim Tebow. Murray talks about how he's worked on his anticipation going into this season, and then proceeds to "anticipate" every single thing Tebow says.

(The whole series of Heisman House commercials were shot this past offseason, and adhered to social distancing and other COVID guidelines. In fact, Murray and Tebow weren't even in the car together, with technology used to get the spot completed.)

That Murray was acting to an inanimate object actually makes his performance that much more impressive.

It's tough to imagine Murray doing a ton of stuff like that, not when a "perfect day" is playing (and winning) football and then holing up at home playing video games online. But again, being in front of the camera isn't a simple task, and Murray showed himself well.

"Everybody has been pretty complimentary," Murray said. "I think everybody liked the commercial. Year Two of doing the 'Heisman House.' The first year (was) just getting my feet wet. I thought I was decent last year and then them giving me some more love and a little more TV-time, it felt like it was only right to up my game in the acting room. So I thought it was good. Everybody else loved it too."
