Now I’m going to explain to you why it is a game the Cowboys will win. The Saints are 26th against the run.
Drew Brees hit tight end Josh Hill for a three-yard score as the Saints jumped out to 7-3 lead in the first quarter against the Cowboys.
It was the kind of dream night in the Superdome that Saints’ fans had grown used to living out. They’ve given up over 20 points in every game this season and that puts a lot of pressure on the offense to perform. But there are other key variables in play – namely, the quarterbacks.
“Every one of those games you say we had a chance to win legitimately at the end”, Brees said.
That 49-17 loss was particularly embarrassing because the Cowboys had fired defensive coordinator Rob Ryan the previous offseason and brought in Monte Kiffin to run the defense along with Marinelli to coach the defensive line.
In the game last week, the Cowboys didn’t have Tony Romo, Dez Bryant, Greg Hardy, Randy Gregory, Rolando McClain, Orlando Scandrick, Jeremy Mincey, Ron Leary, or Terrell McClain. But channel is the Cowboys vs Saints football game on tonight from New Orleans? That being said, if Dallas loses to a bottom-of-the-barrel New Orleans team, this season is in real trouble.
To actually pull it off, though, will take more than a trip through the media guide. This year, Miami won its opener, then dropped two in a row, managing to combine the beatdown against the Bills and the ugly home loss into one forgettable 41-14 defeat last week.
Dallas squares off with New Orleans sunday night.
“Brandon Weeden has never thrown for more than two touchdowns in a game”, wrote Marc Sessler in an article that appeared on the league’s official site Friday. It will be interesting to see how this transaction will pan out for the Saints as it is a defense-for-offense transaction.
Actually it was the late, great legendary New Orleans native and iconic local TV and radio sports broadcaster Bernard Saverio Diliberto, Jr., better known to older Saints fans as “Buddy D”, who was the one who started the entire “Aint’s” era. Approaching that would certainly help the Saints’ cause to perhaps find an open wide receiver before midseason.
By restructuring of his contract for the 2015 season early this season, it gave the Saints $2.6 million to play with. Also likely to play are the aforementioned Byrd and Keenan Lewis, the team’s top cornerback. Doing it without turnovers would surprise, and perhaps be an even better sign for the future.
