The Ravens closed out venerable Texas Stadium by making some history of their own.
Le'Ron McClain's 82-yard touchdown run - the longest by a visiting back in the stadium's 37-year existence - finished off the Ravens' critical 33-24 victory over the Dallas Cowboys and ruined the much-anticipated celebration.
The Ravens (10-5) now need only a victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars (5-10) next Sunday in the regular-season finale to clinch a playoff berth.
Their path to the postseason remained clear because they hurdled a tough roadblock against the Cowboys (9-6). The Ravens became only the third visitors since 1996 to beat an NFL team closing out its old stadium.
