Bryan McCann grabbed a batted-down punt and returned it 97 yards for a touchdown, Miles Austin had two short touchdown catches and 38-year-old Jon Kitna had a career-best 29-yard TD run for Dallas (3-7).
Cowboys interim coach Jason Garrett won his home debut and improved to 2-0 since taking over for Wade Phillips. It’s the first time all season Dallas won at home, having lost the first four.
The Lions (2-8) lost their 26th straight on the road, extending a woeful NFL record that began in 2007, when Kitna was their quarterback.
Bills 49, Bengals 31
At Cincinnati, Ryan Fitzpatrick matched his career high with four touchdown passes during Buffalo’s biggest comeback in 13 years, and the Bills (2-8) won their second straight game.
Steve Johnson caught three of the touchdown passes, including an 11-yarder that put Buffalo ahead 35-31 early in the fourth quarter. Johnson finished with eight catches for 137 yards.
The Bengals (2-8) appeared to be in control after Johnathan Joseph’s interception return put them ahead 28-7 in the second quarter. The Bengals’ smallest crowd since 2003 saw a vintage collapse.
