Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald has been named the NFC Offensive Player of the Week for Week Three of the 2012 NFL season.
The All-Pro wideput caught nine passes for 114 yards and a touchdown in Arizona’s 27-6 rout of the Philadelphia Eagles last Sunday in Glendale. Fitzgerald also captured NFC Player of the Week honors last November following the Cardinals’ win in Philadelphia.
The 3-0 Cardinals continue to garner honors. Last week, defensive end Calais Campbell was named the NFC Defensive Player of the Week for his stellar performance against New England.
The Red Birds have been installed as seven-point favorites over the visiting Dolphins Sunday at University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale.
Miami leads the all-time series, 8-2, although the Cardinals have captured the last two contests. This will just be Miami’s third visit to the desert.

On the Arizona Cardinals' injury front, defensive end Darnell Dockett suffered a strained right hamstring in the Red Birds' impressive 27-6 triumph over the Philadelphia Eagles last Sunday. Arizona's coaches and management don't think it's too serious at this point but more should be known by mid-week. If Dockett can't play on Sunday against Miami, the Cardinals...
(Eds: APNewsNow. Will be updated. With AP Photos.) By BOB BAUM AP Sports Writer Everyone associated with the Arizona Cardinals knew that it was just a matter of time before Larry Fitzgerald had another big game.
After all, it has happened so many times before.
So to the surprise of no one, after a slow start in the first two games of the season, Fitzgerald caught nine passes for...
The Arizona Cardinals have placed running back Beanie Wells on the NFL's new injured reserve/designated for return list, meaning he won't be able to play in a game until Nov. 25.
Wells was injured in Sunday's 27-6 win over Philadelphia.
The new list requires Wells to stay out of practice until Nov. 7 and prohibits him from playing in a game until the Cardinals are home...
TEMPE, Ariz. Ryan Williams isnt changing much this week as he prepares to become the featured back in the Cardinals offense when they host the Miami Dolphins on Sunday at University of Phoenix Stadium.
Hydrate more, do a little bit more cardio, Williams said. Oh yeah, and Im doing some Epsom salt baths.
The latter could help reduce the swelling and pain from the added hits Williams...
Kevin Kolb seems firmly at the controls in Arizona, riding high with a Cardinals team off to a 3-0 start for the first time in 38 years.
Yet looming is a decision on whether he remains the starter, or the job goes back to John Skelton, who beat out Kolb in the preseason but has been sidelined by a sprained ankle since late in the season opener against Seattle.
Kolb came on to direct...
The Arizona Cardinals have placed oft injured running back Chris ‘Beanie’ Wells on the new ‘designated for return’ Injured Reserve list, meaning that Wells is ineligible to practice with the Cardinals for the next six weeks and cannot return to game action until week 12 at the earliest. While this is just more bad news for Wells, it is excellent news for his successor in...
Cardinals running back Ryan Williams will carry the majority of the rushing workload while Beanie Wells (turf toe) is sidelined.Fantasy Spin:Williams will certain have a golden opportunity to show his stuff and become an every week fantasy starter. The Cardinals aren't going to throw the ball all over the lot, therefore holding down the starting spot could be a huge break for...
According to Kent Somers of the Sporting News, Cardinals quarterback Kevin Kolb is expected to hold on to the starting job even when John Skelton is healthy again, as long as he keeps winning.
I don’t see why Kolb should lose his job as long as he protects the football and the Cardinals keep on winning.
Miami Dolphins (1-2) at Arizona Cardinals (3-0)
The Cardinals are 3-0 right now, but they’re incredibly overrated. Do you really trust anyone on this offense other than Larry Fitzgerald? The defense is great, but I don’t think they’re well rounded enough to make the playoffs in a loaded NFC. They have a negative yards per play differential and rank tied for 30th in offensive...
They are the story of the league, at least in terms of an on on the field product around the league. While everyone obsesses about the replacement officials and the integrity of the game, the Cardinals have gone out there and won their first three games of the season.
In convincing fashion no less. Seattle, New England and Philly. Three very solid teams that have been beaten...
The first place Arizona Cardinals. It has a nice ring to it, doesn’t it? Let’s take a look at Arizona’s report card based on their 27-6 thumping of the Philadelphia Eagles yesterday at University of Phoenix Stadium: Offense Grade: B + Finally, the Red Birds showed a semblance of a running game. Ryan Williams had [...]

He also talks about why the SEC continues to be dominant and why he is so impressed with both new head coaches at ASU and Arizona.
