Carson Palmer hits Larry Fitzgerald for easy 7-yard TD strike (GIF)

Had they not been in maybe the best division in all of the NFL last season, the Arizona Cardinals and their 10-6 record would have been in the playoffs. The team was so improved last year because of the chemistry that developed between veteran QB Carson Palmer and the man who some consider to have the best hands in the game, Larry Fitzgerald.

Well in the team’s preseason opener on Saturday night, they showed that they don’t plan on missing a beat this season.

Not long after the game got underway, Palmer and Fitzgerald capped off an eight-play, 73-yard drive with a seven-yard touchdown play that they both just made look all too easy.

Again, this team would have gotten into the playoffs last season, had it not been for the fact that the Seahawks and 49ers were so impressive. However, these two will be playing with a huge chip on each of their shoulders this season. And as we can see here, that can only mean bad things for opposing teams and defenses.

How do you think the Card will do this season with this tandem? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
