Fitzgerald limited: Larry Fitzgerald’s tweaked hamstring got the better of him in the second half Sunday. He pulled himself out of the game during the Cardinals’ last drive of the third quarter.

“I didn’t have much in the second half,” he said. “I was just fatigued. I didn’t want to be a liability for my team. A couple years back I would’ve tried to keep going.”

First for Arians: Bruce Arians recorded his first win as a head coach in his second game leading the Arizona Cardinals.

“[It’s] always special,” Arians said. “You never know when you’re going to get it.”

Arians never satisfied: The Cardinals again struggled on third down, going 1-for-11. Arians was asked what he’s like on the headset during stressful situations, like third downs.

“I’m always frustrated,” he said. “I’m pissed the whole game.”

Peterson anticipated pick: When Patrick Peterson gave up a 72-yard touchdown pass to Calvin Johnson in the second quarter, he thought LB Karlos Dansby had an interception. In fact, Peterson heard the ball hit Dansby's shoulder pads but the ball went under Dansby's arm.
