Week 14 Report Card: AZ Cardinals at SF 49ers
PASSING OFFENSE: D -- Kurt Warner threw for only 178 yards and was intercepted twice. The protection was poor. Warner was sacked four times and hit on numerous other occasions.

PASS DEFENSE: B -- The Cardinals intercepted Alex Smith twice, and the 49ers quarterback threw for only 144 yards. The Cardinals needed to put more pressure on him.
SPECIAL TEAMS: C -- The 49ers blocked an extra point, and K Neil Rackers struggled with a sore groin. P Ben Graham was solid but not great. The return games didn't produce.
COACHING: C -- The Cardinals blew a chance to clinch the NFC West by losing to the 49ers for the second time this season. Those are the only division losses the Cardinals have had over the past two seasons.
