Cardinals outlast Seahawks in another OT win
Glendale, AZ – Jay Feely hit the game-winning 28-yard field 20 win over the Seattle Seahawks in the season finale for both squads.
The winning drive was keyed by two huge catches by Larry Fitzgerald. Faced with a 3rd-and-3 from their own 26, John Skelton connected on a 26 yard catch- and-run to Fitzgerald to bring the ball inside Seattle territory at the 48. Then, Skelton found Fitzgerald for 12 yards on an outstanding one-handed snag to place the ball near the red zone, setting up the game-winning kick.
Fitzgerald ended his day with nine catches for 149 yards, while Skelton, who started for the third consecutive week in place of Kevin Kolb, threw for 271 yards, one touchdown and one interception on 22-of-40 passing.
LaRod Stephens-Howling established career-highs with 93 yards on 21 carries in place of Beanie Wells, who was inactive due to a lingering knee injury. Chester Taylor ran for a score, while Todd Heap caught a touchdown pass for Arizona (8-8), which won seven of its last nine games to finish the season on a positive note. The Cardinals also won in overtime for the fourth time this season.
Tarvaris Jackson threw for 222 yards, one score and one interception on 21- of-35 passing, while Leon Washington rushed for 78 yards and a touchdown for Seattle, which finished 7-9. Ricardo Lockette hauled in a 61-yard touchdown pass for the Seahawks.
