    1. THIRD-DOWN DISADVANTAGE: Four-time Pro Bowl quarterback Drew Brees (below) is enjoying another outstanding season for the Saints.

    But the statistic that worries the Cowboys the most is his third-down passer rating of 111.9. Brees ranks second in the league in that category, a big reason the Saints have converted 67 of 133 (50.4 percent) third-down attempts to rank first in the NFL.
