NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — The Arizona Cardinals are getting so comfortable on the road that not even blowing a 17-point lead late in the fourth quarter bothers them anymore.

"Well, these are not your old Cardinals," Arizona kicker Jay Feely said.

Antoine Cason got his second interception of the game in overtime, and Feely kicked a 41-yard field goal, helping the Cardinals edge the Tennessee Titans 37-34 Sunday to stay close in the NFC's playoff chase.

The Cardinals (9-5) won for the sixth time in seven games and improved to 3-4 on the road this season. With San Francisco and Carolina winning, they remain a game back of both in the chase for a NFC wild-card berth. The Cardinals will have a chance to even their road record this season and improve their playoff hopes when they visit Seattle next Sunday.

Then Arizona hosts the 49ers on Dec. 29 in a season finale that could decide whether the Cardinals are still playing in January.

The loss is the third straight for the Titans (5-9) and the eighth in 10 games. They have lost five consecutive home games for the first time since moving to Tennessee in 1997 and now have their second losing record in as many seasons.

"Nobody in our building has tanked it, and that is a good example that guys are going to keep fighting," left tackle Michael Roos said. "We're going to keep fighting and working, and that is the attitude in the building. We're just going to keep doing that as much as we have to and find that little bit to get over the hump."

Five things to know about the Cardinals' overtime win and another Titans' loss:

FABULOUS FEELY: The Cardinals brought in Dan Carpenter for a few days in August to try to challenge the 37-year-old kicker. Feely matched his season-high kicking three field goals against the Titans, including the game-winner. Feely said the key in the NFL is production and it doesn't matter what a player has done in the past. Feely is 25 of 29 on field goals and topped 100 points for the ninth time in his career and the fifth time in six seasons.
