With all due respect to wide receiver Michael Floyd, the Offensive MVP of the 2013 Arizona Cardinals was quarterback Carson Palmer.

Floyd had an excellent season in his second year in the NFL with a team-high 1,041 receiving yards. It was close but Palmer gets the nod as the 10-6 Cardinals' MVP on the offensive side of the ball.

The USC product took every snap at QB this season. Every snap. After a shaky start, Palmer really came on in the second half, firing 14 touchdown passes and eight interceptions in leading the Red Birds to seven victories in their last nine games.

Palmer finished with 4,274 yards through the air. He had a total of 24 touchdown passes and 22 interceptions but was much more effective down the stretch. The 11-year veteran completed 63.3 percent of his throws and finished with a QB rating of 83.9.

Was it a perfect season for Palmer? Certainly not. But the Cardinals would have not been in contention for a wild card berth until the season finale against the 49ers without him.
