WHAT HAPPENED: After the Ravens' offense was shut out in the first half, Boller threw for two touchdowns in the third quarter, and the Ravens never looked back. With the Ravens relying on the passing game after star running back Jamal Lewis suffered a sprained right ankle in the first quarter, Boller threw the ball on 11 of 15 plays to lead touchdown drives of 78 and 63yards for a 14-3 Ravens lead in the third quarter. The defense took over in the fourth quarter to seal the win. Nickel back Chad Williams intercepted the Cowboys' Vinny Testaverde and returned it 44 yards for a touchdown and a 24-3 lead. Drew Henson replaced Testaverde and was stripped of the ball by Marques Douglas on his first NFL snap, leading to another Ravens score.
KEY STATS: Boller completed 23 of 34passes for 232 yards and two touchdowns. ... Ravens linebacker Ed Hartwell had a team-high 13 tackles. ... Reed's interception was his sixth of the season, and it was the third straight game in which he intercepted a pass. ... The Cowboys had a season-low 222 yards of offense and were held without a first down on eight of 14drives.
QUOTABLE: "It's going to be tough [to beat us]. With the way Kyle [Boller] is playing and the way our defense is playing, it's a scary sight to see." - Terrell Suggs, Ravens linebacker
"Our intensity is so high right now, especially in the second half. I don't see a lot of teams that can match it." - Hartwell
