GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Serving as a guest conductor of the national anthem at the Phoenix Symphony's opening night Thursday, Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald was running the show.
Against the Eagles on Sunday, Fitzgerald was the show. The Cardinals' superstar wideout put on his latest record-breaking performance in the team's 27-6 win, once again proving himself the lynchpin of the Arizona offense.
"We're improving as an offense," Cardinals coach Ken Whisenhunt said. "We're still a work in progress, but it's a lot better to get Larry more catches than one this week. That's a good place to be."
Fitzgerald caught just one pass in a win over the Patriots last week and had totaled just 67 yards on five catches through the Cardinals' (3-0) first two games. On Sunday, he had topped those numbers by halftime. He went to the locker room with seven catches for 105 yards while the Cardinals sat on a comfortable 24-0 lead. He finished with nine receptions for 114 yards and a touchdown.
