JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Byron Murphy intercepted two passes, including one he returned for a touchdown following a botched trick play, and the Arizona Cardinals rallied to beat the skidding Jacksonville Jaguars 31-19 on Sunday.

The Cardinals improved to 3-0 for the first time since 2015. The Jaguars lost their 18th straight game, leaving them eight shy of the NFL record for futility. This one unraveled late. Jacksonville led 19-10 in the third quarter.

Coach Urban Meyer got the spark he had been looking for when Jamal Agnew returned a missed field goal a record-tying 109 yards for a score. But it was all Arizona down the stretch.
