ARLINGTON, Texas(AP) — 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 touchdown run to lift the Cowboys to a 35-19 victory over the Lions.

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 this season Dallas (3-7) has won consecutive games and the first time all season it 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.

Detroit led 12-7 and was consistently stuffing the Cowboys' offense midway through the third quarter when John Wedling jumped over the goal line and tapped a punt back into the field of play.

It hopped up waist-high and right to McCann, and the speedster turned it into the second-longest punt return in franchise history — a week after a 101-yard interception return that was the longest in club history.
