GLENDALE, AZ -

The Arizona Cardinals host the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Sunday at University of Phoenix Stadium in the 19th all-time matchup between the two teams. 

The Cardinals are coming off a narrow 23-21 loss to the New England Patriots in the regular season opener. 

WR Larry Fitzgerald and RB David Johnson provided the majority of the highlights - and points - for the Cardinals offense. 

Fitzgerald hauled in his 99th and 100th career TD receptions, becoming one of just 10 players in NFL history to reach 100 career TD catches. 

Johnson gave Arizona 132 total yards (89 rushing; 43 receiving) and a TD for the game. 

Despite the loss, the Cardinals enter this week’s game with a 19-6 record at home under head coach Bruce Arians. 

Tampa Bay is coming off their first win in a season opener since 2012 following a 31-24 victory over the NFC South rival Falcons. 

Second-year QB Jameis Winston led the way with four TD passes. 

Kickoff is 1 p.m.
