Ravens-Cowboys: Baltimore Spoils Texas Stadium Finale, Maybe Playoff Hopes

Ryan GaydosSenior Analyst IDecember 21, 2008

On Saturday Night Football, the Baltimore Ravens faced off against the Dallas Cowboys at Texas Stadium in Texas Stadium’s last game before it gets torn down.
The game had plenty of action going into the fourth quarter. The score was 16-7 Baltimore until scoring went back and forth between Dallas and Baltimore. After a Dallas score with about 1:18 remaining, running back Le’Ron McClain ripped off an 82-yd rushing touchdown to seal the game.

The drive before, running back Willis McGahee broke a 77-yard touchdown run. Both runs broke a record for longest touchdown runs at Texas Stadium.

Quarterback and likely rookie of the year Joe Flacco, threw for 149 yards and a touchdown pass.

Tony Romo threw two touchdown passes and two interceptions.

Baltimore’s playoff hopes are still alive while Dallas’ are slimming.
