Cardinals: Week 15 News & Notes
Dockett's touchdown gave the Cardinals nine touchdowns via returns this season, a franchise record.
--The victory was Ken Whisenhunt's 35th as the team's head coach. That tied him with Charley Winner for third place in franchise history. Don Coryell (42) and Jim Hanifan (39) are ahead of him.
--Jay Feely scored 25 points in the game, including 22 consecutive. He became the fourth kicker since the merger in 1970 to rush for a touchdown. The 25 points were the second most ever scored by a kicker. Rob Bironas had 26 for Tennessee in 2007.
--Larry Fitzgerald became the franchise's all-time leader in receptions Sunday. He has 592, passing Anquan Boldin, who had 586. Fitzgerald moved into second place in receiving yards, moving past Jackie Smith. Fitzgerald had 7,928, trailing only Roy Green, who had 8,497.
--Running back Tim Hightower gained a career-high 148 rushing yards. Hightower gained 100 yards on seven carries in the fourth quarter.
--RB Beanie Wells was ill Sunday and had two IVs before the game. He played in the first half, running six times for 16 yards, but couldn't go in the second half. Wells had a fever and was vomiting.
--QB Derek Anderson continues to struggle with concussion symptoms. He has not been cleared to play after suffering a concussion against the Rams on Dec. 5. Even if Anderson is given the go-ahead to play Sunday, John Skelton will start.
--C Lyle Sendlein suffered a severe cut on his right hand and was bleeding profusely. The injury caused Sendlein to blow two shotgun snaps before he left the game. He had the injury fixed and returned in the second half.
--LB Daryl Washington returned to the starting lineup after losing his job after starting the first seven games. Washington replaced Gerald Hayes, whose lack of speed was glaring.
--FS Kerry Rhodes intercepted his fourth pass of the season, which leads the team. Rhodes also has recovered three fumbles.
