    ARLINGTON, Texas -- Dez Bryant might be the best punt returner in the NFL, but it was Bryan McCann who broke the Detroit Lions’ hearts.

    McCann returned a punt 97 yards for a touchdown as the Dallas Cowboys handed the Lions their 26th straight road loss, 35-19, at Cowboys Stadium.

    McCann’s punt return came on a great heads-up play after John Wendling tapped the ball trying to save it from going into the end zone. McCann grabbed it on one hop and tight-walked down the sideline to give the Cowboys a 14-12 lead.

    Jerome Felton fumbled on the ensuing series, and the Cowboys cashed in with a 3-yard touchdown pass from former Lion Jon Kitna to Miles Austin.
