Cardinals Burned By Bengals In First Half; Fall Short 23-16

Andy Dalton threw a pair of touchdown passes, and Cincinnati withstood yet another fourth-quarter comeback by the Cardinals, holding on for a 23-16 victory Saturday that kept the Bengals in playoff contention.

The Cards (7-8) rallied from a 23-0 deficit and had a chance to tie. Receiver Early Doucet was uncovered at the goal line but tripped as he ran, letting a fourth-down pass fall incomplete with 1:11 left.

John Skelton, who started once again for Kevin Kolb, was erratic on the afternoon, throwing three interceptions to go along with 297 yards and two touchdowns.

Larry Fitzgerald added 105 receiving yards and a score.
