The Arizona Cardinals paid tribute to late U.S. Senator John McCain on Thursday night before their preseason finale vs. the Denver Broncos at University of Phoenix Stadium.

The Cardinals aired a video tribute to McCain and had a moment of silence for him before the singing of the national anthem.

Earlier on Thursday, Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald, a longtime friend of the McCain family, spoke at McCain's memorial service in Phoenix. He made it to Glendale in time for Thursday night's game.

"While from very different worlds, we developed a meaningful friendship," Fitzgerald said of McCain. "He didn't judge individuals based on the color of their skin, gender, political affiliation or their bank accounts."
