Palmer and Fitzgerald Are Reliving The Glory Days
One of the least talked about subjects in the NFL so far is just how well Palmer’s offense is playing this year. They’re playing extremely well so far this season and I don’t see that stopping anytime soon.

Considering how old each player is, you would think that Palmer and Fitzgerald would be cruising through the rest of their historic careers and soon would retire. Instead, both Palmer and Fitzgerald are playing about as well as they ever had.
Palmer has thrown for 145/222 for 2,015 yards, 16 TDs and only 5 INTs. This puts him third overall in terms of amount of yards thrown for in the NFL this season.
Meanwhile on the receiving end Fitzgerald has had 46 receptions for 622 yards. Fitzgerald’s success is followed by fellow WRs John Brown (37 receptions for 562 yards and 3 TDs) and Michael Floyd (16 receptions for 213 yards and 2 TDs).
Long story short, this offense is a monster to handle with both the passing end as well as on the running end. Palmer and Fitzgerald are the staples of this Cardinals offense and they are big reasons as to why they’re currently 5-2.
