To the surprise of no one, the Cowboys are being pretty disappointing tonight.
They took the lead when Dan Bailey made a 37-yard field goal in the first quarter, but the lead didn’t last long. The Saints took over on a 22-yard pass from Drew Brees to Marques Colston, which gave the Saints a 7-3 lead.
It looked like it’d be a game for a minute, when a seven-yard run by DeMarco Murray put Dallas back in the driver’s seat at 10-7. But then three touchdowns--a one-yard pass from Brees to Pierre Thomas, a three-yard run by Darren Sproles and a 28-yard catch by Sproles--made things decidedly grim for the Cowboys, at 28-10.
Oh, and Sean Lee is out with a hamstring injury.
