PASSING OFFENSE: A -- The Cardinals went with a short passing game to help get Kurt Warner in rhythm. It worked. Warner completed 24 of 26 to set an NFL record for completion percentage in a single game (92.3.) Warner wasn't sacked and passed for two touchdowns.
RUSHING OFFENSE: B -- The Cardinals rushed for 118 yards and a 4.2 average. The only issue that keeps the grade from an A is that rookie Beanie Wells fumbled twice, losing one of them.
PASS DEFENSE: B -- The Cardinals sacked David Garrard four times and put pressure on him on numerous other occasions. Garrard did have two touchdown passes, however.
RUSH DEFENSE: B -- The Jaguars' Maurice Jones-Drew had a 36-yard run and the Jaguars averaged 4.6 yards a carry. But the defense did a decent job most of the day.
SPECIAL TEAMS: C -- Antrel Rolle returned a blocked field goal for a touchdown but he also misjudged two punts that could've really cost the Cardinals.
COACHING: A -- The Cardinals won a game on the East Coast with a three-hour time difference. That's been a rarity for them. The club was ready to play and the game plans were creative on both sides of the ball.
