IRVING, Texas -- Dallas Cowboys fans and Hall of Famers came early and stayed late, making sure they savored every bit of the 313th and last game at Texas Stadium.
The Baltimore Ravens will remember it fondly, too.
Willis McGahee ran 77 yards for a lead-stretching touchdown when
things got tight late in the fourth quarter, then Le'Ron McClain
topped that by going 83 yards for the real victory-clinching
touchdown with 1:18 left, sending the Ravens past the Cowboys 33-24
Saturday night in a game both teams needed to boost their playoff
Baltimore led 19-10 midway through the fourth quarter behind
four field goals from Matt Stover, who sold programs outside the
stadium as a kid growing up in the area, and a touchdown pass from
Joe Flacco to Derrick Mason.
Tony Romo threw touchdown passes to Terrell Owens and Jason
Witten over the last 3:36, each putting Dallas within two points.
But the Ravens answered both with one-play scoring drives, both
coming on runs up the middle against a defense that had done a
great job against the run all night. When Romo's final drive ended
on downs, fans began to boo. More boos followed when Flacco took a
knee and time ran out.
