TBT: Ravens Spoil Cowboys' Final Game At Texas Stadium With 2 Long TD Runs

The Ravens were the odd choice by the NFL to close out Texas Stadium in 2008, but the AFC opponent made sure to crash the party.

The final game at the Cowboys' home stadium since 1971 didn't turn out the way the home fans would've preferred. Baltimore used a pair of long fourth-quarter touchdown runs by Willis McGahee and Le'Ron McClain to keep the Cowboys from closing out the stadium in style.

A rookie quarterback named Joe Flacco was steady in leading the Ravens to the win, countering every move by Tony Romo, who was just in his second season as a full-time starter.[embeddedad0]

While the Ravens won the game 33-24, the Cowboys still held quite a celebration afterwards, as many former players returned for an on-field sendoff. Roger Staubach, Randy White, Mel Renfro and Emmitt Smith were among the greats in attendance.

Overall, the Cowboys dropped to 0-4 all-time against the Baltimore Ravens franchise.
