Late FG saves Cards, spoils Cowboys' comeback

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Jay Feely kicked a 48-yard field goal with 10 seconds to go to thwart a big Dallas rally and give the Arizona Cardinals a 27-26 victory Saturday night over the Cowboys.

Dallas (5-10) rallied from an 18-point deficit to take a 26-24 lead when Stephen McGee -- making his first NFL appearance after Jon Kitna departed with a hip injury -- 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 also booted a 49-yarder earlier, has missed three kicks all season, including another 49-yard attempt in the Christmas night encounter.

Dallas fell behind, 14-0, when interceptions of Kitna passes were returned for touchdowns on the Cowboys' first two possessions.
