Special teams and defense continues to excel while DT Bryan Robinson and WR Larry Fitzgerald accomplish milestones.

--The Cardinals have scored eight touchdowns on returns this season and only 11 through conventional means: rushing or passing. Kick returner LaRod Stephens-Howling has two returns for touchdowns.

--Stephens-Howling is one of three players with two kickoff returns for touchdowns this year. New England's Brandon Tate and Seattle's Leon Washington are the others.

"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.

--WR Larry Fitzgerald became the second-youngest player to reach 7,500 receiving yards in his career. Only Randy Moss did it at a younger age than Fitzgerald, who turned 27 last August. Moss was 26. 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.

--WR Andre Roberts, a rookie, scored the first touchdown of his career last week, a 30-yard reception from Derek Anderson.
