Seahawks Vs. Cardinals: Larry Fitzgerald, Seattle's Cornerbacks A Matchup To Follow

How Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald fares against the Seattle Seahawks' cornerbacks is one of five must-watch matchups of Week 1 of the NFL season, according to Daniel Jeremiah of NFL.com.

With Fitzgerald being the cornerstone of the Cardinals' offense, how he performs Sunday will go a long way in determining whether or not Arizona can pull off the upset and beat the Seahawks, according to Jeremiah. Both Brandon Browner and Richard Sherman should see time matching up against Fitzgerald.

On the matchup, Jeremiah writes:

"Browner and Sherman can maul most wide receivers at the line of scrimmage, but Fitzgerald is nearly impossible to disrupt in his release. His combination of foot quickness and upper-body strength allows him to cleanly escape press coverage on a consistent basis. The Cardinals will give Fitzgerald at least a half dozen chances on deep balls in this game. He must corral three or four of them for this Arizona offense to generate enough points to win the game."
