Arlington, Texas -- Reggie Bush's leg held up fine Thursday, his broken fibula apparently healed. It was his hands that seemed fractured against the Dallas Cowboys.

A dropped pass that likely would've gone for a touchdown and a fumbled punt that led to one for Dallas cost the Saints 11 points and spoiled his much-anticipated return after eight games.

But they nearly cost the Saints much more in a 30-27 victory at Cowboys Stadium that provided more anxiety than should've been present after New Orleans bolted to leads of 17-0 and 20-3, making Dallas appear listless and overmatched during the sprint.

The Cowboys, instead, got an unexpected lift from Bush. And he got an improbable gift from teammate Malcolm Jenkins, whose run-down and strip of Dallas receiver Roy Williams prevented a score and definitely gave the Saints a critical possession. Drew Brees turned it into a winning five-play, 89-yard touchdown drive.
