Larry Fitzgerald’s “re-birth” continues
Fitz didn’t have his biggest day of the year but he still certainly showed everyone that he isn’t continuing his re-birth with any kind of slow down. He caught five passes for 58 yards and a touchdown on Sunday. Again he showed his fight and resolve to do whatever it takes to win.
On a 2nd and 23, he caught a 26-yard pass that he ended up fighting the last several yards for. He almost scored. You had to feel for Fitz for not making it into the end zone coming up two-yards short. Well, quarterback Carson Palmer made sure Fitz would get his touchdown by throwing a slant to Fitz on the very next play for Fitz’s NFL-leading sixth touchdown of the season.
