Vikings' Thielen, Diggs Look Forward to Seeing Cardinals WR Fitzgerald Jr.

October 11, 2018 06:29 PM

When the Minnesota Vikings host the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday, Minneapolis native Larry Fitzgerald Jr. will be coming home.

"I learned a lot from Larry, and not just in person, but watching him long before I was in the NFL. I watched a lot of his stuff, caught a lot of his games and just have a lot of respect for him. Obviously, he's been great to me and given me a lot of support," said Vikings wide receiver Adam Thielen.

Currently, Thielen is second in receiving yards in the NFL with 47 catches for 589 yards and three touchdowns, trailing only DeAndre Hopkins of Houston. Thielen leads the NFL in receptions. 

Thielen and teammate Stefon Diggs believe the passing attack led by quarterback Kirk Cousins can get much better and that's saying something considering the Vikings are ranked 2nd in passing in the NFL.
