Jacoby Jones tied an NFL record with a 108-yard kickoff return, and the Baltimore Ravens held on to beat the Dallas Cowboys 31-29 Sunday for their 14th straight regular-season home win.
Dallas ran for 227 yards, most ever against the Ravens, and totaled 481 yards offense. But the Cowboys (2-3) missed a 2-point conversion after closing to 31-29 with 32 seconds left.
Dallas recovered the onside kick, and Dan Bailey was wide left on a 51-yard field goal try with :06 remaining.
Ray Rice scored two touchdowns and Joe Flacco threw for a score to help the Ravens (5-1) secure their fourth consecutive victory and enhance their grip on first place in the AFC North. Baltimore's home winning streak is the longest current run in the NFL.
Dallas held the ball for more than 40 minutes, but never led after halftime.
