The Arizona Cardinals are probably the quietest 7-4 team in the NFL right now, but whether you want to pay attention to them or not, the fact is that they’re making some noise.
Now, it’s really easy for any team to succeed when you have maybe the best wide receiver in the league on your team in Larry Fitzgerald. It also gets easier when you have a somewhat competent QB like Carson Palmer throwing the ball to him. Because, let’s be honest, Larry Fitz hasn’t really had anyone of competency throwing to him in recent years.
The chemistry between Palmer and Fitz was on display in the first half against the Philadelphia Eagles today.
Down 7-0 in the second quarter, Palmer dropped back on the eighth play of the drive with about eight minutes to go in the half and found Fitzgerald for this incredible 43-yard touchdown play to tie things up at seven apiece:
Perfectly thrown ball and a nice show of strength by Fitzgerald to get away from the defenders initially and then speed his way to the end zone.
