Larry Fitzgerald Jr. left Minnesota winless yet again Sunday. The star receiver has not won a football game in his home state since his senior year of high school at Holy Angels in 2002.
The long drought was extended after the Vikings' 30-24 victory over Arizona to push the local product's NFL regular-season hometown losing streak to five games.
The Cardinals are 2-6 overall against the Vikings since Fitzgerald joined the team in 2004. He first lost in Minnesota almost 10 years ago on Nov. 26, 2006.
The former No. 3 overall draft pick has matured into one of the NFL's best receivers and finished Sunday's game with six catches on seven targets for 63 yards and averaged 10.5 yards per catch. However, his totals were near season lows.
After Sunday's game, he has 1,092 receptions and needs three receptions to pass Tim Brown and 11 to pass former Vikings star Cris Carter on the NFL's all-time reception list.
Fitzgerald has 50 catches 673 yards in his career against the Vikings.
