Recap: Arizona vs. Dallas

Glendale, AZ (Sports Network) - The Arizona Cardinals' offense struggled to score Saturday. Fortunately for them, they had Jay Feely.

Feely made four of his five field goal attempts and the Cardinals defeated the Dallas Cowboys, 12-7.

The 37-year-old kicker is coming off one of his best seasons. He connected on 25-of-28 field goals last year for the Cardinals, including a career-long 61- yard field goal in Week 6 against the Bills.

Carson Palmer got the start for the Arizona, completing 7-of-15 passes for 66 yards on three series. Drew Stanton was 10-for-19 for 152 yards and an interception. Rashard Mendenhall, after missing the preseason opener with knee tendinitis, rushed seven times for a game-high 32 yards.

The Cowboys had 342 total yards, but committed six turnovers in the contest.

Tony Romo went 7-for-10 for 142 yards while Alex Tanney was 14-for-19 for 136 yards, one touchdown and one interception. However, two of Kyle Orton's eight pass attempts were interceptions. Dallas also had to deal with fumbles by receivers Dez Bryant and Dwayne Harris and running back Lance Dunbar.

Feely split the uprights from 25 yards out on the opening drive. He booted two more in the second quarter. The first was from 53 yards away midway through the period and the second was from 40 yards just as time expired.

Neither team managed to score in the third but the Cowboys were able to finally get on the board in the fourth. A 16-play, 89-yard drive that started with 5:48 to play in the third went nearly 10 minutes before Tanney found Gavin Escobar on a 5-yard pass with 10:55 left in regulation

However, that would be it for the Cowboys. On the ensuing possession, Feely made a 22-yard field goal with 5:07 to play while Dallas failed to score on its final two drives.
