Cardinals Report Card: Cardinals @ Giants
RUSHING OFFENSE: B -- The Cardinals averaged just 3.3 yards a carry, but rookie Beanie Wells had a 4.8-yard average and a touchdown. He's an explosive player who will only get more time.
PASS DEFENSE: A -- The Cardinals intercepted three passes and sacked Eli Manning twice. The secondary played an excellent game, and coordinator Bill Davis did a nice job of calling blitzes.
RUSH DEFENSE: A -- The Giants gained 107 yards but could never get anything consistent going. The Cardinals continue to prove to be an excellent run defense.
SPECIAL TEAMS: A -- The coverage teams limited returner Domenik Hixon, no easy task, and P Ben Graham gave the Cardinals good field position. The return teams handled the ball cleanly but didn't do much else.
COACHING: A -- Coach Ken Whisenhunt has changed the team's mind-set. It used to be awful on the road, but the Cardinals are 3-0 away from home this season, and the victory over the Giants was the club's most impressive regular-season win in years. The game plans on both sides of the ball have excellent in recent weeks.
