WHO DAT, Saints fans, WHO DAT!!!! A battle of first place teams in the NFC as our 10-1 New Orleans Saints are in North Texas, to play the 6-5 Dallas Cowboys for the NFL's weekly Thursday Night Football coverage.

Both teams again adjusted to play on Thursday Night, as both teams played and won their games last Thursday on Thanksgiving Day and Night.

New Orleans won four of their last five regular season meetings over Dallas since 2010, and they will also go for their 11th consecutive win tonight.

Dallas though leads the all-time regular season series of New Orleans with their 16-12-0 record, in tonight's 29th meeting.

Tonight's Thursday Night Football game is simulcasted in the USA on The NFL On FOX, in New Orleans on WVUE FOX Channel 8, on cable on your TV and computer, and free on your smartphone Wi-Fi on the NFL.com app.

Kickoff from AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, is by 7:20 PM, Central Standard Time.

NO injuries, GEAUX SAINTS, and WHO DAT!!!!

Brees was careless with the ball today. He should've had 2 ints and 1 fumble today. Kamara didn't have a good game. Thomas dropped a couple, and TQS dropped an easy catch that probably would've led to a TD. They need to take an extra day to practice during this mini break.
They looked kind tfs okf finesse Saints.

Not the kind of football that can get through playoffs.

Bree’s has a game like this periodically.

Why?

Pressure up the gut and off the edges in synch.

The Cowboys did that. Pushed OL around.

Dumb mistakes and awful refs ended any possibility of late heroics.

Sort of - cowboys had every opportunity to kick a FG at the end of this one though, assuming everything else goes the same way
Wouldn’t have been in the position to pass to tie. Game would have already been tied. Different play calling. Would have been running to get into FG range and eat up the clock.

Cowboys didn't score a single poi in the second half,but beat us 😂😂😂. Superbowl please. We better hope we get the second seed. If chicago keeps winning and we lose one more they could jump us. shirt the divison isn't secure.
Really, you can add either 3 or 7 to their score, as they kneeled on the goal line. The only thing that impressed me about the Cowboys was their desire to win. We didn't have that.

I don't care what anyone says. Drew brees lost this game. Dislike this comment all you want. He laid an egg. Defense played a good game,but brees just threw it away with a horrible throw. This game hurts his mvp chances big time.
He did and probably lost HFA and the MVP tonight as well. This team looked tired and they didn’t match Dallas intensity either. Garrett out coached Payton tonight. We’ll see how tough this team is mentally now. But playing tight against a fired up Cowboys team doesn’t bode well. Ten wins will probably get them into the playoffs but after tonight they might not be there long. I did not see a mentally tough team out there tonight. I saw a team that completely folded under pressure.

You are kidding yourself if you think Brandon Marshall is a viable 2nd WR. The playcalling and game plan was garbage. We came out trying to throw it 7 out of the first 8 plays. Stupid.
I am sure that Payton wanted to put them on their heels, so that we could force them to play our game. That didn't quite work out the way we planned.

Instead, they played our game against us, controlled the ball, and forced us to make mistakes.

Bottom line we got beat today by a team who wanted it a little more than we did..D played great the whole game..Our Offense seemed to never adjust to what was going on..I think some of that was that we dropped more passes then I can remember that we catch 80-90% of the time...Bottom line shirt happens and you move on. The worst part is we have to wait a week and 1/2 till we play again. I would hope and l"m also confident that Sean will have ours boys out ready to play....I hate losing any game but we still have a lot of big games ahead of us and hopefully this loss leaves bad taste in our boys mouths for a while..

Give the cowboys credit . That’s the game plan to beat the Saints. Play keep away from the offense and play tight man to man defense


We need to see what Brandon Marshall can do
The game plan is blow up the middle of our o-line. Our guys will be embarrassed and more than likely not let that happen again all year. Unfortunately now we need to win out and have the Rams lose to Chicago for HFA so no resting the starters in week 17 more than likely. #2 seed ain’t the end of the world either.
