ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) – Kevin Byard secured the interceptions that triggered the sluggish Tennessee Titans and turned to midfield.
The flashback for the Dallas Cowboys was as daunting as the original.
Byard mimicked Terrell Owens' mocking celebration on the Star logo of the 18-yard 50-yard line. Marcus Mariota was responsible for three touchdowns and the Titans spoiled Amari Cooper's Dallas debut on Monday night with 28-14.
The final zone of Dak Prescott came after Mariota had fiddled with the first two Tennessee possessions. Just like T.O. Run 18 years ago in the old Texas Stadium, Byard ran into midfield under the huge video board in the spacious AT & T Stadium and spread out his arms.
Owens made it twice when San Francisco beat a bad Dallas team this time around. The Titans' (4: 4) victory ended their three-game defeat, while the Cowboys (3: 5) lost for the first time in four home games and made their way into the play-offs difficult.
"It was huge," Mariota said of Byard, adding that he had not seen the party. "The defense has done incredible work to build us over the year, finding ways to give us games and generate revenue."
The Cowboys looked as if the team would make a blowout victory, but only led 7-0 after Mariota's early failures as Brett Maher missed the 38-yard field goal at the opening and Prescott had a bad throw in the doubles coverage would have.
"That was the difference, it's that simple," said Prescott, who made a mistake on his 40-yard line to set Tennessee's tiebreaking score in the third quarter. "The defense has a turnover there, we've gotten seven points and I'm going down there and trying to force the ball and give it back directly."
Cooper scored the first Dallas touchdown after DeMarcus Lawrence stripped Mariota's ball. The two-time Pro Bowl receiver finished with five catches for 58 yards, after being picked up in Oakland in the open week for a first round.
After another chance was given, when a third pass to start the game was rejected by a flashback showing that Luke Stocker had not had the ball long enough, Mariota led an 80-meter drive that drew Derrick Henry 1-1 Jump for a 7-7 tie.
Mariota converted two third-and-9s with passes and a shorter third with a run on his first TD drive. With that, the Titans were ready to convert 11 out of 14 third-downs.
The Cowboys fell in Jason Witten's first trip home since retiring as the senior analyst for Monday Night Football for 15 years.
Dallas only had two hundred points late in the second half – most of those who were desperate – 108 yards – and was booed several times at the end of the failed drives.
After being laid off in third quarter in the third quarter and no one knew that Tennessee had canceled a 7-7 timeout in the second quarter, Mariota completed a 36-yard gap to Darius Jennings before taking a screen pass for Dion Lewis went for a touchdown by 18 yards.
Mariota broke 14:14 in the third quarter as he pulled the ball off Lewis's belly in the last second and handed over a 7-yard shovel to Jonnu Smith to put the Titans in the lead forever. Mariota's 9-yard scoring ended at 4:38.
Mariota was 21/29 for 240 yards with no interception and had 32 yards. Lewis had 62 yards and 60, which were reached in his last game of a 155 -meter run.
Star Dallas ran back to Ezekiel Elliott after a hot start with 61 yards. Prescott was 21 of 31 for 243 yards and two points – 4 yards to Cooper and 23 yards to Allen Hurns. The two sales were Prescott's first season at home.
There was something else familiar with Byard's party: a Dallas defense attorney trying to do something about it.
George Teague threw Owens famous fame back then, and Cowboy's cornerback Byron Jones took a similar step on Byard and the group that had joined the celebration. Owens seemed to be improving the whole thing on Twitter.
"I was expecting someone to cut my head off," said Byard, thinking about the possible celebration at the team hotel. "I thought when we get to the '50s, if we have enough people in the' 50s, we'll just start dancing on the star."
The Cowboys praised Witten with a pre-game video on the giant board that hung over the field. The franchise leader in games, catches and yards received his eyes as a small section of him was shown during the video. He seemed to calm down, however, when he was shown full screen. Witten waved, smiled, and tapped his chest several times as the crowd roared.
Dallas LB Sean Lee retired with an Achilles tendon injury as he tried to cover Smith in a 26-yard run to the close end of the Titans. Lee did not come back. Titans WR Taywan Taylor left what coach Mike Vrabel called an abdominal injury.
