PASSING OFFENSE: C -- No turnovers, but no spectacular plays, either. The protection broke down at the end of regulation and in overtime. The Cardinals can't seem to come up with the big play when needed.
RUSHING OFFENSE: D -- The Cardinals averaged just 2.5 yards a carry as the Vikings stacked the line to shut the run down. The Cardinals aren't good enough at quarterback to make teams back off.
PASS DEFENSE: F -- Vikings QB Brett Favre threw for a career record 446 yards, quite an accomplishment since he has played 20 seasons. Favre shredded the secondary in the fourth quarter and there was no pass rush.
RUSH DEFENSE: C -- Vikings running back Adrian Peterson was held in check, but then the Vikings didn't try too hard, handing the ball off just 15 times.
SPECIAL TEAMS: A -- LaRod Stephens-Howling returned a kickoff for a touchdown, and Michael Adams returned a fumble on a kickoff for another score. The special teams outscored the offense, 14-10.
COACHING: D - The Cardinals suffered a collapse of startling proportions to end the game. The offensive problems could be foreseen but that's two weeks in a row the defense has faltered.
