Coming off one of their worst offense games in the last five season´s the Saints will look to get back into their groove, they lost to the Jets, granted New York as a superior defense but still, this is the Saints, a super bowl favorite. The Cowboys have needed the last few seconds in their last two games for an outcome, losing one with a late Romo Pick and winning last week in a last minute drive by Romo. Finally some good news for the Dallas defense as pass rusher DeMarcus Ware will be back in the lineup this week against the Saints.
Dallas Cowboys vs. New Orleans Saints
1:00 PM ET, November 10, 2013
MetLife Stadium, East Rutherford, NJ
Dallas have had issues getting after opponents QB´s, they lack the veteran guy that can get around the lineman and at the very least hurry the QB up, now with Ware back, I expect them to be more aggressive off the snap. Offensively they seem to have overcome their sideline outburst and receiver Dez Bryant has come up big for his teammates down the stretch of games, look for him to have yet another great game against a defensively challenged team.
The Saints understand that to lose yet again this late in the season could cost them big, a lose to the Jets really placed things in perspective that they are still flawed and they need to get their defense up to par if they expect to challenge a team like the 49ers or Denver. QB Drew Brees seems to be having problems given the lack of receiving production, his go to guy is Jimmy Graham, a 6 foot 4 inch tight end.
What to expect:
The Saints are home and -6.5 coming into this game, they have the offensive drive as well as the experience but I’m vouching for the dog in this one, Dallas has more offense and defense then New Orleans does, the only problem I see is QB Tony Romo being the key guy to cost this team a win, if its close nearing the end of the game that would scare me. My pick for this game is the Cowboys and the over 54, as both teams will look to match each other’s scoring drives.
