The Saints likely will be eliminated from playoff consideration at some point Sunday regardless of the outcome, but a win over the Cowboys would be more meaningful than last week's 41-0 trouncing of moribund Tampa Bay.
In a frustrating season tainted by the bounty affair, the Saints finally put it all together on Sunday, crushing the Tampa Bay Bucs 41-0. It's not going to get New Orleans to the playoffs -- their hopes are slim to none -- but it was certainly the Saints at their very best.
Saints TE Jimmy Graham is tied with the Patriots' Wes Walker for the most drops in the NFL this season with 10 according to ESPN research. On Friday, he and interim coach Joe Vitt provided a potential reason for that high number.
With the bounty news coming out this week and the Saints virtually out of the playoff race, their game against the Buccaneers on Sunday has been an afterthought at best. But quarterback Drew Brees says after losing three in a row, winning still matters to him.
