Saints Dominate Cowboys in Sunday Night Football

The Saints came marching into their home stadium to drum the Dallas Cowboys 49-17.

The Saints, after losing two games to the New England Patriots and New York Jets, brought a dominating performance to the Mercedes-Benz Superdome by setting a single-game record of 40 first downs.

Drew Brees threw for 392 yards and four touchdowns against the Cowboys.  The ground game was solid, too, for the Saints as they ran for 242 yards.

While the offense was running and passing all across the field, the Saints’ defense held the Dallas offense to only 193 total yards.  Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo was 10 for 24 passing for only 128 yards.

The Saints will be entering a fairly tough stretch as they still have to play the San Francisco 49ers (6-3), Seattle Seahawks (9-1), and division-rival Carolina Panthers (6-3) twice, but should have two easy games against division basement-dwellers Atlanta Falcons (2-7) and Tampa Bay Buccaneers (0-8).

Dallas has a bye week next week.  After a break, they have each of their division rivals (Giants, Redskins, Eagles) once plus the Chicago Bears (5-4), Green Bay Packers (5-4), and the Oakland Raiders (3-6).  The Cowboys are currently tied with the Eagles at the top of the mediocre NFC East.
