There must be something about the Philadelphia Eagles that bring out the best in Larry Fitzgerald.
The Arizona Cardinals' wide receiver has been named the NFC Offensive Player of the Week for his outstanding performance against the Eagles last Sunday in Glendale.
The eight-time Pro Bowler tore Philadelphia's secondary apart with seven receptions for 160 yards and an 80-yard catch-and-run for a touchdown in Arizona's thrilling 24-20 win over the 5-2 Eagles.
The Red Birds have the best record in the NFC at 6-1.
It marked the third time that the University of Pittsburgh product earned the honor and all three times it was against the Eagles. The other two times were in 2011 and 2012.
One thing that was so impressive about Fitzgerald's 80-yard scoring reception from Carson Palmer on Sunday was that he still showed breakaway speed after he caught the short aerial from Palmer. If there was any doubt whether the 31-year-old had wheels, that doubt was dispelled against the Eagles.
It was the longest touchdown reception of Fitzgerald's stellar career.Read more... Join the Conversation...
