Last Sunday, everything seemed to finally click for the Dallas Cowboys’ running game against Atlanta.
That’s why Saints fans need to bring their “A-Game” tonight as well, just as much if not more than the team themselves do. It was just functionality. Well, the Saints will have an opportunity to avoid an 0-4 start with a big win at home over the Cowboys in an NFC cross-divisional matchup.
The New Orleans Saints are expecting quarterback Drew Brees to start on Sunday against the Dallas Cowboys, according to Mike Triplett of ESPN. I have followed them for several years, and they are the most lucid and accurate assessment of team strength I know.
The Cowboys didn’t have much of anything the last time they visited the Saints in 2013. The New Orleans Saints are not a good football team right now for a number of reasons.
But Dallas is limping into the Mercedes-Benz Superdome without quarterback Tony Romo, receiver Dez Bryant and a trio of key defenders in Greg Hardy, Rolando McClain and Orlando Scandrick, rendering a team that made the playoffs previous year largely unrecognizable – save for one tough Cowboy who happens to play a position that has given the Saints fits this season.
Tonight’s New Orleans Saints vs Dallas Cowboys NFL Sunday Night Football game has a start time schedule of 8:30pm eastern time and airs on TV channel NBC.
Murray has rushed for a mere 11 yards on 21 carries in two games this season. That’s because New Orleans is about to welcome back the main cog in their machine.
Growing up, Dunbar studied ex-Saints running back Darren Sproles. The game is also airing as a live stream online. But Witten had 60 yards, two touchdown catches, eight receptions. If the Cowboys don’t come to play regardless of who the Saints’ quarterback is, they will lose this game.
Saints DE Bobby Richardson vs. Cowboys RT Doug Free: Richardson is the beneficiary of the trade that shipped Akiem Hicks to the Patriots on Wednesday. Joseph Randle ranks among the league leaders in yards after contact and is averaging a respectable 4.2 yards per carry as the lead back. “If he’s capable and able, I’m sure he’ll be ready to go and I thought he looked good this week”.
“He’s just an excellent runner, and has a feel for the game”, coach Jason Garrett said.
Considering that last week the offensive game planning was more centered towards short passes and establishing the run, the Cowboys still have one of the top offensive lines in the entire NFL.
As proficient as the Saints are on offense, the Cowboys have been even better.
