The NFL's Thanksgiving Day schedule saw the home teams come away with victories.

Nov 29th, 2013 - Sports News

The league saved the best for last as Joe Flacco threw for 251 yards and Justin Tucker hit five field goals in the Baltimore Ravens' 22-20 win over Pittsburgh. The Steelers had a chance to tie the game after Ben Roethlisberger threw his second touchdown of the night, a one-yard pass to Jerricho Cotchery with 1:03 remaining. But Roethlisberger's conversion pass slipped through the hands of Emmanuel Sanders, allowing the Ravens to even their record at 6-6 while dropping the Steelers to 5-7.

Flacco tossed a seven-yard scoring strike to Torrey Smith, who had six receptions for 93 yards. The first-quarter TD put the Ravens ahead to stay.

The Cowboys spotted Oakland a 21-7 lead before scoring 24 straight points to beat the Raiders 31-24. Dallas did it with a steady ground game as DeMarco Murray ran for 63 yards and three touchdowns, including a seven-yard burst that put the Cowboys ahead to stay in the fourth quarter. Backup Lance Dunbar had a career-high 82 yards rushing before leaving the game in the second half with a sprained knee.

Tony Romo was 23 of 32 for 225 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions as the Cowboys moved two games over .500 for the first time since last season.

Rashad Jennings had a pair of short TD runs for the 4-8 Raiders, who secured a seventh consecutive non-winning season.

The Lions had dropped two straight overall, five straight against the Packers and a franchise-record nine in a row on Thanksgiving before Matthew Stafford threw for 330 yards and three touchdowns in a 40-10 pounding of Green Bay. Reggie Bush finished with 117 yards rushing and 65 yards receiving while helping the Lions score the game's final 37 points.

The Lions defense hounded Packers quarterback Matt Flynn with seven sacks, including one by Ndamukong Suh for a safety. Flynn also had three turnovers in his first start since returning to the Packers.

The victory improved the Detroit record to 7-5 and ensured that the Lions would retain at least a tie for the NFC North lead with Chicago once the weekend is done.

The Packers dropped to 5-6-1 and ran their winless streak to five games, their longest since 2008.
