What to Know
The Dallas Cowboys will square off against the New Orleans Saints at 8:20 p.m. ET Thursday at Caesars Superdome. The Cowboys won't have the home-field advantage, but they do enjoy a 4.5-point advantage in the spread.
Dallas fought the good fight in their overtime contest against the Las Vegas Raiders last Thursday but wound up with a less-than-desirable result, falling 36-33. Dallas didn't live up to their potential and found themselves falling short of the 7-point advantage oddsmakers thought they had coming into the game. A silver lining for them was the play of QB Dak Prescott, who passed for two TDs and 375 yards on 47 attempts. Prescott hadn't helped his team much against the Kansas City Chiefs two weeks ago, so this was a nice turnaround for him.
As for New Orleans, it looks like they got the smaller half of the wishbone at Thanksgiving dinner. They have to be aching after a bruising 31-6 loss to the Buffalo Bills last Thursday. New Orleans was down 24 to nothing at the end of the third quarter, which was just too much to recover from. RB Tony Jones had a memorable game, but not in the way you want to be remembered: he rushed for 27 yards on 16 carries.
Dallas is now 7-4 while the Saints sit at 5-6. A pair of offensive stats to keep an eye on: The Cowboys come into the matchup boasting the most yards per game in the league at 419.8. Less enviably, New Orleans is fourth worst in the NFL in passing yards per game, with only 209.9 on average. So the cards are definitely stacked against New Orleans.
