Fitzgerald looking for first win in hometown

Larry Fitzgerald has enjoyed success against pretty much every team he’s faced in his career, and Sunday’s opponent is no exception.

The Cardinals travel to Fitzgerald’s hometown Sunday to play the Minnesota Vikings.

Fitz has gone over 100 yards receiving three out of the four times he’s played against the Vikings, including a 11 reception, 172 yard performance in 2006 and an eight reception, 143 yard effort in 2009.

Fitzgerald has caught passes from three different quarterbacks in four games against the Vikings, including Matt Leinart in 2006, Kurt Warner in 2008-09 and Derek Anderson last season.

So if Derek Anderson was able to get the ball to Fitzgerald for 107 yards, new quarterback Kevin Kolb shouldn’t have a problem finding his favorite target.

Even though the wideout has seen success against his hometown team with a total of 474 yards receiving he only has one touchdown, which came in 2009.

That 2009 game was the only time Fitzgerald has beat the Vikings by a score of 30-17.

That win came at University of Phoenix Stadium so the Cardinals all-time leader in receiving yards is still looking to collect a win in his hometown.
