Motivated 'Boys Ready for Ravens

The Ravens will run into a motivated group of Cowboys and Cowboys fans on Saturday.

The Cowboys are in a must-win battle to keep their playoff hopes alive. If that wasn't enough, it's the last game at Texas Stadium as the team moves into the new Cowboys stadium in Arlington next year.

The Cowboys are planning a big send off with all the stars from yesteryear, including the team's Hall of Famers and members of the hallowed ring of honor.

The Cowboys would love nothing more than to give them all one great final memory at Texas Stadium.

"So much tradition and so many great things that happened in that stadium, you just, it's kind of neat to sit back and think about and reflect on some of the things you were able to watch (and) see, how many big games, or how many great players have been in a situation in there," quarterback Tony Romo said. "It makes you think and to be proud of the organization. To win the last game, it's really important, but I don't think it will change the history of what's been done before. I know the fans will be excited, I know the players are excited and obviously the organization is behind it. From that prospective, we like to send it out on the right note."

THURSDAY LEFTOVERS: QB Tony Romo said his back was better Thursday and he threw the ball fine in practice. He doesn't expect to have any problems in Saturday's game.

--RB Marion Barber didn't practice with the dislocated pinky toe. He will be a game-time decision.

--SS Keith Davis was named the team's Ed Bloch courage award winner for playing last season with a torn pectoral muscle. He could also win this year as he is playing with a sprained knee and has a neck strain, but will not miss Saturday's game against the Ravens.

--FS Ken Hamlin will not practice this week with a sprained foot but he will play against the Ravens Saturday.

--LB Bobby Carpenter is iffy for Saturday's game with a calf strain. He has not practiced all week.
