In a few respects, the squad that will face the Cowboys on Sunday night is the same Saints team that we have seen ever since Sean Payton was hired away from the Cowboys in 2006 and, in one of his first moves, brought Drew Brees in to be his quarterback.
Brees missed the Saints’ loss in Carolina last Sunday because of a bruised rotator cuff in his right (throwing) shoulder.
The New Orleans Saints will wear white jerseys and gold trousers against the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome. “I want to go out and show them that they made a mistake”. “He’s thrown well. I thought he looked sharp today”. Brandon Weeden completed 22 of 26 passes for 232 yards. Byrd has been noncommittal about his prospects for coming back, but Lewis has all but guaranteed he’ll play.
The Saints are excited to get their franchise quarterback back. LINE: Off. O/U: OffABOUT THE COWBOYS (2-1): Running backs Joseph Randle and Lance Dunbar enjoyed career performances last week, with the former rushing for 87 yards and three touchdowns while the latter had a personal-best 10 receptions for 100 yards. Payton and Brees have both insisted that the quarterback wouldn’t play if he didn’t have the strength and functionality needed to make every throw.
Can the Dallas Cowboys overcome injuries to Tony Romo and Dez Bryant or will a gimpy Drew Brees pull it out for the New Orleans Saints?
The Saints and Cowboys kickoff at 7:30 pm Connecticut.
If Brees felt anything other than frustration during his week away, his teammates never saw it. Brees never missed a practice session, not even after he had decided Luke McCown would take over last Friday.
Still missing is guard Jahri Evans, who has been out with an knee injury since the Tampa Bay game. “I’ve talked to them and I’ve developed an understanding that you can only control what you can control”.
“The New Orleans Saints have lost six straight home games are winless on the season”, Archer wrote.
