Arizona Cardinals vs. Minnesota Vikings: Live Game Grades and Analysis

Vikings 21, Cardinals 14

Arizona falls for a third consecutive time, dropping to 4-3 after a 4-0 start. Protection was non-existent once again despite the rushing attack from LaRod Stephens-Howling.

The line surrendered six more sacks, the majority coming at the most inopportune times possible. All but one were drive-stifling sacks, moving the offense too far to manage too many times.

LSH carried the load, rushing 20 times for a career-high 104 yards and a touchdown. William Powell hardly played after fumbling a kick return.

Larry Fitzgerald caught only four passes for 29 yards and was shut out for roughly two quarters before getting a fourth-quarter scoring drive going with a 16-yard reception.

Andre Roberts led the way—as is the custom when John Skelton starts—with seven receptions for 103 yards and a touchdown. He also led the team with nine targets.

Inside linebacker Daryl Washington was the team leader once again, racking up nine more tackles and two more sacks. His six sacks are a career-high for a season, and he leads all ILBs in that category. He is having a monster year.

Here are the game grades for the Cardinals' loss at Minnesota.
