PASSING OFFENSE: B -- Quarterback John Skelton was far from perfect. He had two bad interceptions, and he missed some other open receivers. However, he had three touchdown passes and made other good throws. He had decent protection, partly because the Cardinals went to max protection more often than usual.
RUSHING OFFENSE: D -- Beanie Wells rushed 23 times for 62 yards, but he looked quicker than he had in more than a month. He just didn't have much room to run. The offensive line appeared to blow too many assignments.
PASS DEFENSE: A -- Eagles quarterback Michael Vick passed for just 128 yards, and the Cardinals intercepted two of his throws. A third interception was nullified by penalty. Cornerback Patrick Peterson is improving rapidly, and Richard Marshall is showing considerable versatility, playing both cornerback and safety.
RUSH DEFENSE: B -- The Eagles gained 166 yards, but 79 of it came from Vick. The Cardinals kept running back LeSean McCoy in check. A solid effort.
SPECIAL TEAMS: D -- Either of Jay Feely's two field-goal misses could have cost the Cardinals the game. He can't miss from those distances, 35 and 43 yards. Patrick Peterson had a 24-yard return nullified by penalty.
COACHING: A -- Smart game plans on both sides of the ball. Defensively, the Cardinals' speed showed whenever Vick ran. In passing situations, end Calais Campbell lined up wider than usual, a move designed to contain Vick. The nickel package, which includes Marshall moving to safety from corner, is becoming the best alignment for the club. Offensively, the play-calling was creative in the red zone. The Cardinals used a reverse, a screen and threw to a receiver who lined up in the backfield.
