    ARLINGTON, Texas -- The Detroit Lions set another NFL record for futility Sunday, extending their road losing streak to 26 consecutive games. The latest was a 35-19 loss to the Dallas Cowboys.

    It was the Lions' first visit to the new Cowboys Stadium.

    Former Lions quarterback Jon Kitna threw three touchdown passes -- two to Miles Austin -- as the Cowboys improved to 3-7, while the Lions fell to 2-8.

    To add insult, Kitna ran for a 29-yard touchdown on a naked bootleg on fourth-and-1 with 3:36 remaining in the game.
