Cowboys 31 - 20
Saints win at least by 10 points
Cowboys 27, Saints 24
Tough game that could go either way, but I gotta go with my team.
The Cowboys finally get a home win by more than one score, and they finally score more than ten points in the first half. I envision a halftime score of 28-10 Cowboys.
I'm surprised how many think the Saints win this one, and by a decent margin.
This matchup favors us more than either of the last two did. They're weak across the board defensively, and we've got good press corners and get pressure from our base set. The Saints have little margin for error offensively if we just play sound football it forces Brees to play near perfect football--which he can readily do to keep things close.
I think Dallas wins this one by two scores at the end: 35-24.
I was shocked at the Steelers win.
Can it happen again. I don't think so.
If you follow the predictions of a few of whom you are talking, Dallas would be 0-14 right now.
Not really. This is just a game that could go either way.
Saints are 6-8 for a reason.The previous week,the Giants blew them out in a shutout.They are last in the league in defense,they allow a ton of points.TB is not the Dallas Cowboys.Cowboys will not turn the ball over the way the Bucs did.Cowboys 34 Saints 27
Cowboys - 34
New Orleans - 27
And if you follow the predictions of a few of whom who are talking, Dallas would be 14-0 right now.
Yeah, I know. But even against the Bengals and Steelers they were mostly predicting close games.
I can easily see the Saints beating us in a wild game with a ton of big plays and some blown coverages by our safeties in the passing game. I just think this is one where the better team has more to play for and most of the matchup advantages. Unlike the last two games, which were toss-ups, this is a game we should win if we play good football, and we're playing good football right now.
Saints are not any good. We spotted them 41 points last week, luckily time ran out for them.
Pierre Garcon's running ability hinges on his ability to gain and lose yardage.
Drew Brees has finally started to realize his full potential, however his completion percentage is well below 80%. The Cowboys defenders will have their opportunities. Unfortunately the Bucs were caught off guard by the Saints' secret playcalling.
In summarization, the Saints remind me of a poor man's Buccaneers. They have the talent to get things done but have come out on a short stick in more than half their games.
I don't make predictions...it's a superstition I've had going back to the 90s.
But I have to comment that some of the so-called Cowboys fans in this thread disappoint me greatly. That is all.
Since I've picked against the Cowboys the last two weeks, why stop now:
Saints have one of the WORST defenses in the league.
