Oklahoma State Cowboys
The Dallas Cowboys dominated the statistics, held the ball twice as long as Baltimore and amassed more yards rushing against the Ravens than any team - ever.
Baltimore won anyway, thanks to Jacoby Jones' lengthy run into the NFL record book.
Jones tied an NFL mark with a 108-yard kickoff return, and the Ravens beat the Cowboys 31-29 Sunday for their 14th straight regular-season home win.
Dallas ran for 227 yards and totaled 481 yards offense. The Cowboys (2-3) also held the ball for more than 40 minutes. It wasn't enough.
After Dez Bryant scored on a 4-yard pass from Tony Romo with 32 seconds left to make it 31-29, the 2-point conversion pass zipped through the arms of the diving Bryant in the front left corner of the end zone.

The Ravens are running the ball for an average of just over 112 yards per game while their defense ranks 26th in total yards and 26th against the rush. This may be unfamiliar statistical territory...
They sit a half game out of the NFC East but the Dallas Cowboys remain one of the leagues biggest question-marks. The Cowboys have looked good at times and bad at others. Traveling into Baltimore and winning would be a huge step up for this team but is there any chance?In order to win the Cowboys must take advantage of the Ravens sloppy secondary. Dallas has good receivers and if...
I've already picked an upset and watched an upset this week, but I am feeling another one coming.I've been on the Seahawks bandwagon for a while (I picked them over my Cowboys here and the Packers here). I believe in their defense, and I believe in Marshawn Lynch (especially when he goes for 1/4 of the price of Ray Rice after almost matching Rice's stats last year...
