A fan allegedly hit Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray during celebrations of Arizona's 29-23 overtime victory over the Raiders, according to Las Vegas police, who are looking into the claims.
Following Byron Murphy Jr.'s game-winning fumble return at Allegiant Stadium, Murray was giving high fives to onlookers in the front rows when a man suddenly appeared to reach out and smack Murray in the face.
Murray was seen on camera appearing stunned but unharmed before attempting to find the alleged assailant in the largely joyful crowd.
A battery complaint was filed at the stadium around 6:30 p.m., according to Las Vegas police spokesman Officer Larry Hadfield.
Hadfield acknowledged the allegation that "a stadium spectator struck a professional football player," but he did not specifically identify Murray as the reporting source.
Hadfield stated that the investigation was still ongoing and that no suspect had been named yet.
With two touchdowns and two 2-point conversions in the final 8 minutes and 13 seconds of regulation to force overtime, Murray had a stellar performance for the Cardinals (1-0).
Arizona won for the first time since Murray decided to sign a $230.5 million, five-year contract extension.
Following his 2018 Heisman Trophy victory at Oklahoma, Murray was selected first overall in the 2019 NFL Draft.
