WR Larry Fitzgerald (98 rec, 949 yards, 5 TDs) doesn’t know if these will be their last two games in his career.
“I’ll be back,” head coach Bruce Arians said to ESPN.com. “I ain’t going nowhere “I hope he [Larry Fitzgerald] comes back.”

"It hasn’t gone as good as I want it to, but ultimately it’s about winning for me," Wilson said. "It’s been a little tough this year, obviously, because of the battling with the injuries and stuff. Haven’t been able to bring the extra juju as much as I wanted to for seven or games or whatever, maybe a little bit more. But you still find ways to win."
