The Arizona Cardinals wide receiver only had one catch for four yards, but his club improved its record to 2-0 with an upset of the Patriots in New England.
Fitzgerald was understandably excited to come away with the win, but he apparently had bigger things on his mind following the upset win.
You see, the Boardwalk Empire season premiere was Sunday night. And while winning NFL games may be cool and all, it obviously pales in comparison to an HBO miniseries. Have you ever watched Sunday night programming on HBO? It's spectacular.
Fitzgerald took to Twitter shortly after his team came away with the win, and he let it be known what he was really excited about.
Big win 4 the @cardinals 2day what a nail bitter. Even more exciting 2nite HBO season 3 of Board Walk Empire can't wait to get home 2 c it.
