Cardinals win against Texans ends in final score never seen before in NFL history – .


There isn’t usually much drama on the pitch during the fourth quarter of a busted NFL game, but there certainly was some drama in the final quarter of Arizona’s 31- 5 on Houston in week 7 and this drama came from something called NFL Scorigami.

If you’re unfamiliar with scorigami, it’s pretty straightforward: the internet cheers when the NFL gives us a final score never seen before and that’s what the Cardinals-Texans game gave us on Sunday. The final score of 31-5 marked the first time in NFL history that a game had ended with this score.

The idea of ​​scorigami grew so much on Twitter that even the Cardinals were celebrating the fact that they were now in the club.

The idea of ​​following every scorigami was created by SB Nation writer Jon Bois and there is now a Twitter account with over 250,000 followers that follows every scorigami.

The Cardinals’ victory marked the second scorigami of the season. After spending five straight weeks scorigamis-free, the NFL had its first of the year in Week 6 when the Rams beat the Giants 38-11.

In the Texans-Cardinals match, the impossible had to happen for both teams to reach this final score.

On the one hand, the Texans had to save a safety against the Cardinals high powered offense, which somehow happened in the first quarter.

The Texans ended up scoring a field opening play of the second quarter and that put them to five.

For the Cardinals, scoring 31 points hardly happened. On their first touchdown, they had to convert a fourth and 2 from Houston’s 23-yard line to keep the disc alive, which they were able to do when Kyler Murray hit Christian Kirk for a 13-yard gain.

On their second touchdown, they had to convert a THIRD ET-23, which they managed to do when Murray hit AJ Green for a gain of 41 yards.

Even with a score of 31-5, the scorigami was not safe late in the game. Houston was driving the field in record time, threatening to derail everything. If the Texans even pulled off a late field goal, the scorigami wouldn’t have happened and that’s because the NFL already recorded a final score of 31-8 (most recently in a Ravens victory over the Saints in December 1999). If they scored a touchdown and gave the extra point, that would have destroyed the scorigami as well, as the 31-12 has happened in NFL history before.

In the end, the Texans failed on a fourth down on their own 49-yard line, which preserved the scorigami. And that’s how you get a single score for the 1,068th time in NFL history.

It’s been a surprisingly slow year for the scorigami with just two. Last year there were a total of 12 on the season. Of course, it’s not surprising to see less scorigami and that’s because every time you hit it’s a final scoring option that’s taken off the table.
