They talked, and eventually they went on a walk.
Dallas Cowboys entered this game against New Orleans Saints and knew they might be playing the best team in NFL. Yet they were convinced that they could be blown with the favorites.
And they only made the shocking New Orleans with a 13-10 victory over an exhausted audience of 93,004 at AT & T Stadium and a Thursday night prime-time television audience.
While Saints & # 39; Drew Brees entered this game as league leaders in fitting ratings (127.3) and finalization (76.4), Dak Prescott actually outshined the future Hall of Famer. The Dallas quarterback completed 85.7 percent of its passages for 248 meters and a touchdown with a match rating of 1
15.5. And this despite being dismissed seven times.
Of course, Ezekiel Elliott made his part, as he toppled 100 meters from scrimmage for the fifth straight game and rushed for 76 meters while taking 60 yards. Michael Gallup and Amari Cooper gave the perfect one-two punch in the appropriate game as well. They ended with 76 and 75 meters respectively, which received respectively.
In summary, the cowboys won the occupation time, 36:53 to 23:07, and left the visitors 308 meters to 176. That dominance came thanks to the true stars of the night, Cowboy’s defense. They had a Saints team who had estimated an NFL-best 37.2 points per game and 416.6 meters per race to less than half of these totals. And Brees threw for only 127 meters with a touchdown and a listener for a 71.6 rating.
The key was, of course, to keep Saints quarterback and his powerful New Orleans offensive off-field, a strategy that Cowboys worked to perfection, especially in the first half. After 30 minutes, Dallas had left the Saints, 299 yards to just 59, while holding a possession of 21:49 to only 8:11.
They also had an unthinkable 13-0 leader.
Brett Maher got the cowboys on the board with a 26-yard field goal to relinquish the team’s first possession with Elliott and reached the final zone of Dallass’s third series. It came with the permission of a beautifully executed 16-yard display card to end an eight-game, 85-yard device.
At the same time, Cowboy’s defense came to fire and forced New Orleans to go three and out on their first two possessions – only the second time this season the Saints had been held in subsequent three-and-outs – and their first three series completely. But it was nothing compared to what the Dallas defense did when the Saints got the ball for the fourth time.
With New Orleans on Cowboy’s 39-yard line after a fumble of Amari Cooper, the home team found its back against the wall when the Saints had a first and a goal in Dallas 7. Three games later, New Orleans was fourth against the 1st-yard line . They decided to go after it.
It was a decision that they would regret as cowboys led by a wall of Tyrone Crawford, DeMarcus Lawrence, Jaylon Smith and Leighton Vander Esch, filled back Alvin Kamara without gain.  The cowboys then went from their own 2-yard line to Saints’ 27, making it in 16 games while they eat 9:09 of the clock. That run ended with Maher kicking a 46-yarder to put Dallas up 13-0 in the break. The defensive effort broke a Saints 71 game stretch that scored one in the first half, which was the longest active stretch in the NFL.
New Orleans, however, would not be left by the board much longer. To get to the ball to start the third quarter, the Saints would move 60 yards into 10 gigs before signing on a 33-hectare field goal.
As good as it was until that time, Cowboys defended themselves on New Orleans’ next possession. Three different punishments retained the chains for the Saints, but even so, Dallas seemed clearly strong and forced visitors to points from Cowboys 48-yard line
But after Randy Gregory was flagged to coarse the kicker who gave New Orleans a new life once more. And this time they were capitalized with Brees to find recipient Keith Kirkwood in the end zone only three later playing for a 30-yard touchdown.
With their lead now only 13-10, the cowboys quickly lost steam and speed. What did not help when the team’s crimes were hit with a penalty of 10 yards that led to a three-and-one that the clock crossed over Fourth quarter.
The cases clearly saw from worse to worse. Prescott and Dallas offensive ran 54 yards in 14 gigs that led to a third and five on the New Orleans 6-yard line. That’s when the disaster struck. 9002] Under pressure, Prescott had lost the ball with Saints & Cameron Jordan, who fell on the award to give Brees a chance at 2:35 in the match. But on New Orleans’s second snap, the crossball was crossed with his intended recipient Kamara, his passport was instead picked by Cowboy’s cornerback Jourdan Lewis. It was only the third interception that broke this season.
Back in business on Saints 16-yard line at 2:08 left, Cowboys received a passport interference call in the end zone, giving them the necessary first down to the ice game, then made to run the clock.
With the win, the Cowboys moved to 7-5 a year, ensuring that they will stay on the NFC East. Perhaps even more important, they also announced that they are now a contestant in this season’s competition for a championship.
