Eagles-Cardinals: Report card

Rushing offense

Brian Westbrook notched only his second 100-yard rushing performance of the season. Kyle Eckel got a standing ovation from the crowd when he converted the Eagles' first third-and-one opportunity. GRADE: A

Passing offense

Four days after getting benched, Donovan McNabb boun ced back in a big way, completing 69.2 percent of his passes and throwing for a season-high 4 touchdowns. And oh yeah. No interceptions. GRADE: A-PLUS

Run defense

The Eagles tackled Tim Hightower for losses on his first 2 runs. Cardinals only ran the ball 10 times for 25 yards. GRADE: A-PLUS

Pass defense

No Asante Samuel was supposed to mean no chance for the Eagles' secondary against the Cardinals' passing game. But they picked off Kurt Warner 3 times and held him to a .540 completion percentage. GRADE: A-MINUS

Special teams

Eagles kickoff coverage unit contained dangerous J.J. Arrington. Quintin Demps had 29- and 30-yard kickoff returns. And David Akers made two 40-plus field goal attempts. GRADE: A-MINUS

Overall

Just when you thought the Eagles were ready to roll over and die, they come up with a superb performance on 4 days rest. Donovan McNabb clearly outplayed MVP candidate Kurt Warner. GRADE: A
