GLENDALE, Ariz. — Jay Feely became the fourth kicker in 40 years to run for a touchdown and added career-best five field goals to help the Arizona Cardinals end a seven-game losing streak with a 43-13 win over the Denver Broncos on Sunday.

Rookie quarterback John Skelton, in his first NFL start, completed 14 of 36 for 141 yards with no interceptions and had at least four passes dropped for Arizona (4-9).

The Broncos (3-10) committed six turnovers, three of them interceptions by Kyle Orton, in their eighth loss in nine games, an uninspired debut under interim coach Eric Studesville, promoted from running backs coach when Josh McDaniels was fired last Monday.

The Cardinals' Tim Hightower rushed for a career-best 148 yards, including fourth-quarter scoring runs of 8 and 35 yards.
