With a record of 1-2, the Saints enter Jerrah's "Six Flags Over Mediocrity" (props to MDC for that nickname) in an effort to even their record out after an 0-2 start to their the season. The Cowboys will attempt to defend their home turf tonight after starting the season 2-1.
The 3rd-ranked offense of the Saints, led by Drew Brees, is going to test the 22nd-ranked Cowboys defense on one side of this NFC tilt. On the other side, the 12th-ranked offense of Dallas will try to exploit the 24th ranked defense of New Orleans. Breaking things down a bit further, the Saints' passing game is ranked 5th in the league, with their running game ranked 6th overall. The Cowboys have a strong running game that is ranked 3rd overall, but their passing game, led by Tony Romo, is a dismal 24th in the league. Never change, baby!
Both teams' defenses could be blown wide open tonight for a very high scoring game. The over/under for this game is currently set at 53, which is the highest value for any game being played this week in the NFL. I'm going with the "over," and I think the Saints win this with a score of 35-24.
Your 3-1 (WOOT!!!) Houston Texans will be visiting the Cowboys next week, so take notes tonight while enjoying your favorite cold beverage. The floor is yours for commenting, and the normal rules apply.
