GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) - Sean Morey blocked Mat McBriar's punt and
Monty Beisel scooped up the ball and scored from 3 yards to give
the Arizona Cardinals a crazy 30-24 overtime victory over the
Dallas Cowboys on Sunday.
Morey rushed untouched off the left side of the Dallas line to
block the kick. Beisel, a backup linebacker, picked up the ball at
about the 3 and bowled over the goal line.
The stunning play by two of Arizona's most unheralded players
brought a conclusion to a game loaded with confusion, controversy
and clutch performances.
Dallas scored 10 points in the final 2 minutes of regulation,
sending the game into overtime when Nick Folk's 52-yard field goal
barely cleared the crossbar as the fourth quarter ended.
Folk was in field-goal range only because a 5-yard offside
penalty was called against injured Arizona linebacker Travis LaBoy
as he tried to limp off the field. That moved the ball from the 40
to the 35.
That was just one of the weird moments in Arizona's sixth
consecutive home victory.
