W2W4: Cardinals vs. 49ers
By Josh Weinfuss
TEMPE, Ariz. – Sunday’s game against San Francisco may not just result in a playoff berth.
It could end with a host of milestones being reached:
- With a victory, Cardinals coach Bruce Arians would match Norm Barry with 11 wins, the most in team history for a coach in their first season.
- A win would also set the best turnaround in franchise history (six games).
- With a TD catch, Larry Fitzgerald would set the record for most TD receptions against the Niners with 13.
- Quarterback Carson Palmer needs 133 yards to reach 4,000 in a season for the fourth time.
- Running back Andre Ellington needs 19 yards to hit 1,000 all-purpose yards, the first time since 2003 a rookie could reach that mark and the fifth time ever.
- Wide receiver Michael Floyd needs 50 yards to reach 1,000 receiving yards.
- Returner Javier Arenas needs 54 yards to reach 500 return yards.
