GLENDALE, Ariz., Dec. 11 (UPI) -- Andre Roberts' go-ahead touchdown grab early in the fourth quarter Sunday rallied the Arizona Cardinals to a 21-19 decision over San Francisco.

John Skelton came off the bench to replace an injured Kevin Kolb early in the game and responded with an 19-of-28 passing performance. He racked up 282 yards and three TDs while overcoming two interceptions.

He found Larry Fitzgerald seven times for 149 yards and a touchdown. The Cardinals star delivered his fifth straight year of at least 1,000 receiving yards with Sunday's grabs, and his sixth in seven NFL seasons.

Arizona (6-7) won its third straight with the help of Early Doucet, who hauled in three passes for 73 yards and a score.

The NFC West champion 49ers (10-3) got 72 rushing yards and a score from Frank Gore. Alex Smith tossed for 175 yards on 18-of-37 efficiency.
