PASSING OFFENSE: C-minus -- Derek Anderson struggles with accuracy and passed for just 122 yards. He did have two touchdown passes but he's missing too many big-play opportunities.
RUSHIGN OFFENSE: A -- The Cardinals continue to show improvement in this area. The Cardinals have rushed for more than 100 yards in each game and in 11 of their last 14, including playoffs.
PASS DEFESNE: B -- A solid effort. The Raiders hit the Cardinals for some big plays, but the Cardinals were able to limit the damage. Cornerback Greg Toler is being tested and he's holding up well.
RUSH DEFENSE: C -- Darren McFadden rushed for 105 yards but the Cardinals were able to limit the number of big runs. Still, the Raiders were more consistent in this area than the Cardinals would have liked.
SPECIAL TEAMS: C -- LaRod Stephens-Howling returned a kickoff 102 yards for a touchdown but the Cardinals lost two punts to fumbles. They still don't have a punt returner ready to take over for Steve Breaston.
COACHING: B -- The players were mentally ready and the game plan was solid. Offensive coaches made a good adjustment at halftime, choosing to have QB Derek Anderson roll out more. This team is still making too many mental mistakes.
