Ravens spoil Cowboys' party

IRVING, Texas -- Between the grit of wide receiver Derrick Mason, two long touchdown jaunts, the precision and poise of rookie quarterback Joe Flacco, the alert thievery of free safety Ed Reed and a well-timed gadget play, the Baltimore Ravens had just enough ammunition to spoil the Dallas Cowboys' elaborate party.

Instead of the Cowboys unveiling their victory celebration following the final game at Texas Stadium, the Ravens turned it into a funeral Saturday night with a 33-24 victory. The Ravens (10-5) silenced the heavily partisan crowd while propelling themselves into prime position to clinch a ticket to the playoffs next week in the last game of the regular season.
