Cowboys Give Cardinals A Gift For Christmas
GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) – Jay Feely’s 48-yard field goal barely cleared the crossbar with 10 seconds to go to thwart a big Dallas rally and give the Cardinals a 27-26 victory over the Cowboys on Saturday night.
Dallas (5-10) rallied from 18 points down to take a 26-24 lead when Stephen McGee, in his first NFL game, threw 45 yards to Miles Austin for a touchdown with 1:46 to play.
Arizona (5-10) was in deep trouble, but rookie John Skelton, on fourth-and-15 from the Cardinals 19, threw 26 yards to fellow rookie Max Komar, and the Cardinals slipped into Feely’s range. Feely, who had a 49-yarder earlier, has missed three kicks all season, including a 49-yard attempt Saturday night.
Dallas fell behind 14-0 when Kitna had interceptions returned for touchdowns on the Cowboys’ first two possessions.
