Dec. 26 (Bloomberg) -- Jay Feely kicked a 48-yard field goal with five seconds remaining to help the Arizona Cardinals beat the Dallas Cowboys 27-26 in their National Football League game last night in Glendale, Arizona.

Rookie quarterback John Skelton completed throws of 26 and 19 yards on the way to the winning kick. Skelton connected on 11 of 25 passes for 183 yards and a touchdown in the game.

The Cardinals outlasted a Dallas rally that erased an 18-point deficit. The Cowboys took a 26-24 lead after quarterback Stephen McGee threw a 37-yard touchdown pass to Miles Austin with 1:47 to play. Kicker David Buehler missed an extra point attempt that would have given the Cowboys a three-point edge.

McGee played after John Kitna, who had two interceptions returned for touchdowns in the first quarter, left the game before halftime with a hip injury. McGee completed 11 of 17 passes for 111 yards and a touchdown in the loss.

Arizona improved to 5-10 with the win. The Cowboys fell to 5-10.
