Bills beat the Cards at their own wacky game

Buffalo wipes out Arizona's eight-game home win streak.

(Continued)

GLENDALE, Ariz. —

Skelton's fourth-down pass to Larry Fitzgerald got Arizona close enough to try the record kick, which cleared the crossbar with room to spare.

"He told me he could make it," Arizona coach Ken Whisenhunt said. "That's why we kicked it there on fourth-and-10. I thought our best option was for him to kick it with the way he was feeling."

The Bills then punted, and in an attempt to keep the ball away from Patrick Peterson, Shawn Powell's 30-yard kick went out of bounds at the Cardinals 47. Skelton's 28-yard pass to Fitzgerald set up the 38-yard try. But Feely, who earlier made two from 49, was thwarted by Carrington's tip.

"It was scary," Carrington said. "I thought it was still going to go in because the ball still kept on going but then hit the post. My heart dropped for a second."

The Bills took the overtime kickoff, advancing to the Arizona 35. Buffalo chose to punt rather than go for a long field goal. The ball nearly was downed at the 1, but was ruled a touchback, setting up the ball at the 20.

From there, Skelton's pass into traffic was intercepted by Byrd. Two plays later, Lindell had just his third field goal of the season — and the Cardinals found out how it feels to be on the other side of one of these.

NOTES: Fitzgerald caught six passes for 93 yards, including a 9-yarder for a touchdown. In the process, he topped 10,000 yards receiving for his career. ... Mario Williams had two of Buffalo's five sacks after coming in with 1½. Buffalo safety Da'Norris Searcy left with an ankle injury early in the third quarter. ... Cardinals safety Kerry Rhodes was carried off the field with a back injury with 5:41 to play in regulation. ... Kolb has been sacked 22 times in the last three games.
