The Cardinals save their best for last as they top the St. Louis Rams by a season-high 29-point margin. Kurt Warner throws for a hat trick and the defense adds two touchdowns of its own to deliver a season sweep of the Rams in style.

PASSING OFFENSE: B-minus -- Receiver Larry Fitzgerald was great, and Kurt Warner wasn't sacked. He had three touchdowns but was intercepted twice.

RUSHING OFFENSE: A -- Edgerrin James gained 102 yards as the offensive line did a solid job all day.

PASS DEFENSE: A -- The coverage was excellent and the Cardinals returned two interceptions for touchdowns.

RUSH DEFENSE: A -- The club contained Steven Jackson (18 carries, 55 yards).

SPECIAL TEAMS: B -- Kicker Neil Rackers made both field-goal attempts, and the coverage teams were good.

COACHING: A -- Nice game plans on both sides of the ball, and a blowout victory was a welcome change.
