Arizona Cardinals’ Larry Fitzgerald sets franchise record for games played
Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald set a franchise record as soon as he took the field Sunday against the Detroit Lions.
Fitzgerald appeared in his 235th regular season game, which makes him the franchise’s all-time leader in games played.
Kicker Jim Bakken previously held the record when he suited up for the Cardinals from 1962-78.
Fitzgerald expressed his excitement to begin his 16th season on Twitter ahead of Sunday’s game.
Coming into Sunday’s game, Fitzgerald had 227 consecutive games with a catch. Additionally, he was tied with tight end Antonio Gates on the NFL’s all-time list for career touchdown receptions.
In his career for the Cardinals, Fitzgerald has had a total of 116 touchdowns and 16,279 yards.
