The Dallas Cowboys controlled possession against Baltimore but it was the Ravens who ultimately edged the victory 31-29.

The Cowboys held the ball twice as long and amassed more yards rushing against the Ravens than any team - ever.

Baltimore won anyway, thanks to Jacoby Jones' lengthy run into the record book.

Jones tied an NFL mark with a 108-yard kick-off 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 four-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.

Dallas recovered the onside kick, but Dan Bailey was wide left on a 51-yard field goal try with six seconds 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.
