Cardinals Feast on Cowboys Mistakes

The Dallas Cowboys are playing like their season is over.

Greg Toler and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie each returned interceptions for touchdowns in the first quarter to give the Arizona Cardinals a 14-0 lead over the Dallas Cowboys on Saturday night.

Rodgers-Cromartie had the first on Dallas' second play, grabbing the ball after Miles Austin slipped on an out route, then leaping over the fallen receiver to race 32 yards down the sideline for a score.

Toler took it in from 66 yards on the Cowboys' next series, scooping up a pass that caromed off Dallas receiver Roy Williams' arm, then sprinting past Kitna in front of the Dallas bench.

Quarterback Jon Kitna has been pressured and hit hard in the first half. The Dallas quarterback had a gutsy seven yard run deep into Arizona territory. From the two yard line, Kitna found Jason Witten to get the Cowboys to within 11 five minutes before the half.

It was Arizona 21-10 at halftime.

During the second quarter, Kitna suffered an apparent hip injury forcing third stringer Stephen McGee into emergency relief in the second half.
