Fitz held down by sputtering Arizona offense

Posted-November 1st, 2012 5:44 pm

TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) -- Arizona's offensive woes have limited the team's ability to take best advantage of one of the best wide receivers in the game.

A weak offensive line, erratic quarterback play and a largely ineffective running game have meant that defenses can zero in on Larry Fitzgerald more than ever, and he was already drawing plenty of attention. One of the game's best offensive players plays on one of its worst offenses.

Fitzgerald has topped 1,000 yards receiving in each season since coach Ken Whisenhunt took over in 2007.

Halfway through this season, with Arizona on a four-game losing streak, Fitzgerald has caught 45 passes for 511 yards and three touchdowns. At this pace, he'd pass 1,000, but just barely.
