Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald continued his streak of dominance over the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday.

The damage came when it mattered most.

Trailing 15-3 in the fourth quarter, Fitzgerald caught a 13-yard touchdown pass from Josh Rosen. It was the 112th touchdown of his career, moving him into sole possession of seventh place in NFL history.

Fitzgerald passed NFL Hall of Famer Tony Gonzalez with the touchdown and is now just four touchdowns away from passing Antonio Gates for sixth place. Jerry Rice holds the NFL reception touchdown record with 197 touchdowns.

The Fitzgerald touchdown also tied him for most receiving touchdowns against one team with 18. He also has 18 receiving touchdowns against the Rams.

He wasn’t done, though.

After wide receiver Christian Kirk caught a touchdown pass late in the fourth quarter to put Arizona up by one, the Cardinals needed a two-point conversion.

They called upon Fitzgerald.

He caught the pass, fought through a defender to get into the end zone and spiked it to give the Cardinals an 18-15 lead.
