GLENDALE, Ariz., Dec. 18 (UPI) -- Jay Feely's 22-yard field goal on Arizona's first possession in overtime Sunday boosted the Cardinals to a 20-17 win over Cleveland.

The Cardinals came up with two big plays that led to the decisive kick. Patrick Peterson returned a punt 32 yards to the Browns' 40-yard line following Cleveland's only possession. John Skelton (28-of-46, 313 yards, one TD, one interception) then hit Larry Fitzgerald for a 32-yard completion on third-and-6 to the Cleveland 4-yard line.

Feely's subsequent chip shot gave the Cardinals (7-7) a fourth straight regular-season win for the first time since 1999.

Andre Roberts hauled down six receptions for 60 yards and a touchdown, while Beanie Wells racked up 51 rushing yards and a score on 15 carries for Arizona.

Seneca Wallace filled in for the injured Colt McCoy and completed 18-of-31 passes for 226 yards and a touchdown for the Browns (4-10), who dropped a fourth straight contest.
