Ravens shut down Texas Stadium

Ravens shut down Texas Stadium

The Dallas Cowboys will never forget the Ravens, who slammed the doors shut on the old Texas Stadium on Dec. 20, 2008.

Both teams were heading to the postseason, but the Ravens ran away with it in the fourth quarter with rookie quarterback Joe Flacco and first-year coach John Harbaugh.

Flacco only threw for 149 yards, but then-running backs Le'Ron McClain had an 82-yard touchdown run and Willis McGahee went 77 yards in to secure a 33-24 victory.

The Cowboys, coming off a bye week, will play at M&T Bank Stadium on Sunday with plenty motivation beyond their 2-2 record. They've never beaten the Ravens in three tries, the last meeting four years ago.

Dallas, which now plays in an 80,00-seat palace in nearby Arlington, is trying to rebound from a 34-18 loss to the Chicago Bears in Week 4 when quarterback Tony Romo tossed five interceptions.

Running back DeMarco Murray, who was expected to build on his breakout 2011 season, only ran the ball 11 times for 24 yards. The offensive line hasn't done a good job blocking for him or protecting Romo who has been sacked eight times.

The Ravens are prone to bend on defense, which could bode well for Murray. In a 9-6 victory at the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday, they allowed Jamaal Charles to run for 140 yards.

At home, however, the Ravens have been almost unbeatable. They've won 13 in a row and 21 of their last 22. The defense has created 12 turnovers through five games.

Romo has more interceptions (eight) than touchdown passes (five).

The good news for him is that starting center Phil Costa, who has been out since the opener with a back injury, returned to practice Monday.

Baltimore Ravens Roundup: The return of Pernell McPhee

Kick off your Friday with the latest Baltimore Ravens news including the return of Pernell McPhee.

Player/Team Notes: 

1. Pernell McPhee is a Baltimore Raven again! The Ravens signed McPhee to a one-year deal according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. McPhee was drafted by the Ravens in 2011 during the fifth round and spent four seasons with the team before landing in Chicago and then last season in Washington. The Ravens hope to capitalize on McPhee's 31 career sacks as they hone-in on producing a "diversified pass rush."

2. The Ravens have also signed offensive lineman R.J. Prince, who was last with Pittsburgh. Prince was waived by the Steelers after not seeing a down during the 2018 season. The Steelers picked up Prince as an undrafted free agent out of North Carolina.

3. Arizona Cardinals cornerback Patrick Peterson has been suspended for the first six games of the 2019 regular season. Peterson reportedly violated the NFL's performance-enhancement drug policy. The Ravens face the Cardinals during Week 2, so this is good news for the guys in purple.

4. The Ravens have reportedly signed former Denver Broncos linebacker Shane Ray, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Ray had an unproductive season with the Broncos last year with one sack and one forced fumble in 11 games played.

Looking Ahead:

July 15: 4 p.m. deadline to get a long-term deal done with designated franchise tag players.
