Fitzgerald on pace for record-breaking postseason

It will be up to the Eagles to stop him. But Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald is on pace to have the most productive postseason of any receiver in NFL history.

Through two playoff games, Fitzgerald has caught 14 passes for 267 yards. If he continues his postseason game average of seven catches for another 133 yards, Fitzgerald would have 21 catches for 400 yards, a new NFL mark. Talk about a dominating debut.

Here are the receivers with the most yards through the first three playoff games of their careers:

Player Team Years Yards Avg.
Anthony Carter Minnesota 1987 391 130.3
Tom Fears L.A. Rams 1945-1950 349 116.3
Wesley Walker N.Y. Jets 1981-82 338 112.7
Darrell Jackson Seattle 2003-05 329 109.7
