Possible milestones for Cardinals players in game against Jaguars

The Arizona Cardinals take on the Jacksonville Jaguars hoping to end their losing streak and give the home crowd a win.

However, in the game, some players can accomplish notable feats or move up all-time lists.

Larry Fitzgerald

With a catch, he will extend his streak of consecutive games with a reception to 206. That is the third-longest such streak in league history.

He will pass Isaac Bruce for fourth place on the all-time NFL list for receiving yards with 52 against the Jags. With 136 yards Sunday afternoon, he would pass Randy Moss for third place.

Chandler Jones

With 10 sacks in 10 games, he needs one to become the first player since Freddie Joe Nunn to have consecutive seasons with at least 11 sacks. Jones had 11 last year. Nunn had 11 in 1987 and 14 in 1988.

With two sacks, he would tie the team record for the number of sack in the first 11 games of a season. Simeon Rice had 12 sacks in 11 games in 1999.

Adrian Peterson

Peterson needs 47 yards to pass Marcus Allen for 13th place on the NFL all-time list for career rushing yards. With 50 yards, he would pass Edgerrin James for 12th place. With 83 yards, he would pass Marshall Faulk for 11th place.

His next rushing touchdown will be the 100th of his career. He would become the ninth player to accomplish that and it would tie him for seventh place on the all-time list for career rushing touchdowns. He would become only the seventh player ever to have 12,000 career rushing yards and 100 rushing touchdowns. The other six players are in the Hall of Fame.

Blaine Gabbert

After a career-high three touchdown passes last week in Houston, he can do something he has accomplished only once in seven NFL seasons. Throwing two touchdown passes would make only the second time in his career he has had consecutive games of multiple touchdowns. The only other time he did it was in 2011, his rookie season.
