GLENDALE, AZ (AP) - Patrick Peterson returned a punt 32 yards, and John Skelton threw 32 yards to Larry Fitzgerald to set up a 22-yard field goal by Jay Feely to give Arizona a 20-17 victory over Cleveland on Sunday.

It was the Cardinals' third overtime win in seven games.

Arizona (7-7), winner of six of its last seven, trailed 17-7 entering the fourth quarter. The Cardinals have been behind in the second half in all six of their recent victories.

Both teams were without their starting quarterbacks because of concussions.

Skelton, in relief of Kevin Kolb, completed 28 of 36 for 313 yards with a touchdown and interception.

Seneca Wallace, starting for Colt McCoy for the Browns (4-10), was 18 of 31 for 226 yards, including a 76-yard TD play to Greg Little.
