Only on a first-and-10 play from the Rams’ 32, Cardinals quarterback Josh Rosen threw a backward pass to Fitzgerald, who cut inside a few yards and planted his feet before pitching a great ball to running back David Johnson for a 32-yard score which pulled the Cardinals within 14-9 during that time.
Fitzgerald, at age 3-5 years, 114 days, is the oldest wide receiver to throw a passing touch down since the 1970 merger, according to the Elias Sports Bureau.
Before Sunday, Fitzgerald was 1-of-3 death for 21 yards.
Fitzgerald is also the very first non-quarterback to throw a touchdown pass to the Cardinals since running back Emmitt Smith threw a 21-yard TD to Obafemi Ayanbadejo on Oct. 3, 2004.
Fitzgerald entered Sunday No. 2 over the NFL’s alltime receiving yards list and third on the league’s alltime receptions list. In halftime of Sunday’s game, Fitzgerald had five catches for 41 yards. He wanted 33 catches to pass Tony Gonzalez, who has 1,325 livelihood catches, for second on the one time receptions list.
