America’s team, the Dallas Cowboys traveled to Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints Sunday night.
New Orleans was Brees’s city Sunday as he completed 34 of 41 passes for 392 yards in a 49-17 win for the Saints.
The Saints beat up the Cowboys not only in the air but on the ground. They racked up over 240 yards rushing which is the most they have had since 1990.
Three out of four of the touchdowns Brees threw were over 20 yards, really showing the weakness for big plays in the Cowboys secondary.
The loss ties the Cowboys at the top of the NFC East with the Eagles.
Obviously Dallas had their struggles on defense lacking the ability to slow down the Saints.
Those troubles carried over on offense and Tony Romo couldn’t get them into a rhythm through much of the game. The Cowboys quarterback really had trouble through the air completing less than 50% of this passes for less than 150 yards.
“It was just difficult. They are a good team. Give them credit,” Romo said.
This win brings New Orleans to 7-2 as they set a new franchise record 625 yards Sunday.
“You strive for efficiency both in the run and pass game. We did that today,” Brees said.
The Saints will play the 49ers next Sunday and will try to extend their win streak to 13.
Dallas Cowboys have a bye week and will try to bounce back against the Giants Nov. 24.
