After scoring on the opening possession of overtime to give the Cardinals a 26–20 overtime win over the Packers and a spot in next weekend’s NFC championship game, wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald sent a special message to ESPN’s Chris Mortensen.
Mortensen was diagnosed with throat cancer on Friday, and Fitzgerald used his interview to let the longtime reporter know that he was in his thoughts.
“Mort, I want to tell you man. We’re thinking about you, and fight, baby.” Fitzgerald said. “Love you, Mort.”
Mortensen thanked Fitzgerald for the words on Twitter.
