PHOENIX - Unless Green Bay's Jordy Nelson has a game for the ages, Larry Fitzgerald will end the 2016 season as the NFL's leader in receptions.
Fitzgerald's five catches Sunday against the Rams gave him 107 total receptions, one more than Pittsburgh's Antonio Brown.
Fitzgerald is 33 yrs, 123 days old. He’d be 3rd oldest to lead NFL in catches: MacArthur Lane (34y271d in '76) & Jerry Rice (34y71d in '96)— Mark Dalton (@CardsMarkD) January 2, 2017
