San Francisco 49ers linebacker Tully Banta-Cain, right, is congratulated by teammate Ray McDonald, left, after Banta-Cain recovered a fumble for the game-winning touchdown against the Arizona Cardinals in overtime of a football game Sunday, Nov. 25, 2007, in Glendale, Ariz. The 49ers won 37-31.  

Tully Banta-Cain recovered a Kurt Warner fumble in the end zone with 4:56 left in overtime as the San Francisco 49ers beat the Arizona Cardinals, 37-31, at University of Phoenix Stadium. With the Cardinals at their own three-yard line after a 49ers punt with 5:02 left in the extra period, Warner dropped back to pass but was hit by defensive tackle Ronald Fields. Banta-Cain then fell onto the ball for the game-winner.

Trent Dilfer went 25-of-39 passing for 256 yards and two touchdowns while Frank Gore ran for 116 yards and a pair of scores for the 49ers, who snapped an eight-game losing skid to improve to 3-and-8 on the season. The victory helped San Francisco avoid it’s longest losing streak since 1978. Warner finished the day 34-of-48 passing for 484 yards with two touchdowns and a pair of interceptions while Larry Fitzgerald caught nine passes for 156 yards and two scores for the Cardinals, who dropped to 5-and-6. The 49ers are on the road against the Carolina Panthers this Sunday.
