PASSING OFFENSE: A -- Kurt Warner had good protection all day, and the Cardinals moved the ball at will against the Seahawks. The trio of receivers, Anquan Boldin, Larry Fitzgerald and Steve Breaston, were dominant.
RUSHING OFFENSE: B -- The final stats weren't good -- 62 yards on 26 carries -- but the Cardinals had 63 yards on 12 carries in the first half. In the second half, Seattle, down by three scores, loaded up to stop the run.
PASS DEFENSE: A -- The Cardinals sacked Matt Hasselbeck five times and limited the big plays. The Seahawks' longest play of the game, a 42-yard pass, came on a fake punt.
RUSH DEFENSE: A -- The Cardinals, ranked first in the NFL, limited Seattle to 14 yards. That was a franchise low for the Seahawks.
SPECIAL TEAMS: B-plus -- Breaston had two long punt returns, and the club recovered a pooch kick by Neil Rackers. The coverage teams were solid. The Seahawks did gain 42 yards on a fake field goal, however.
COACHING: A -- The road used to be where Cardinals dreams went to die. Now the club is 2-0 away from home this season. The players were mentally ready, and the game plans on both sides of the ball worked to near perfection, at least in the first half. This team seems to be slowly improving.
