"That's an area that's been critical for us," said coach Ken Whisenhunt.

--Seahawks coach Pete Carroll had a simple explanation for how the Cardinals lost to the Vikings. "They played a heck of a game and just got Favred."

--NT Bryan Robinson will play in his 200th game Sunday. Robinson hasn't missed a game because of injury since 2005.

Fitzgerald also moved into third place on the all-time franchise receiving yardage list. He trails Roy Green and Jackie Smith.

--OLB Joey Porter has at least one sack in each of the past three games. He had two last week against the Vikings, giving him five for the season.
