This season, Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald has proved his best years aren't behind him -- and neither are his appearances on the cover of Sports Illustrated.

Fitzgerald is on this week's regional SI cover after making a pair of huge catches, including the game-winning touchdown reception, for the Cardinals in their overtime playoff win over the Green Bay Packers on Saturday.

Fitzgerald amassed 1,215 receiving yards during the regular season -- his highest single-season total since 2011 -- and added nine touchdowns. He helped place the Cardinals in Sunday's NFC Championship game with his 176 receiving yards against the Packers.

Fitzgerald has had several SI cover appearances, including during the Cardinals' Super Bowl run in 2008-09. He also appeared on the cover of Madden NFL 10 alongside former Pittsburgh Steelers defensive back Troy Polamalu.
