TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) -- The Arizona Cardinals don't always win when they trail at halftime. Yet every time they do win, it's been after trailing at the half.

And lately, they've been winning a lot.

The Cardinals made it four in a row and six out of seven in the usual fashion Sunday -- beating the Cleveland Browns 20-17 in overtime. Arizona hasn't won this many in a row since 1999 and is at .500 (7-7) for the first time since week two of this season.

The Cardinals even have a longshot at making the playoffs with two games to go.

Following Sunday's win, team President Michael Bidwill presented Ken Whisenhunt the game ball for becoming the winningest coach in franchise history with 43.
