Saints Win Out Over Cowboys, 34-31 In Overtime

The New Orleans Saints defeated the Dallas Cowboys 34-31 in overtime Sunday at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, TX.

Despite the win, the Saints’ NFC playoff hopes ended when the Minnesota Vikings defeated the Houston Texans.

The Saints seem comfortable in their spoiler role, however, as they dealt a gigantic blow to their neighboring state rivals, dropping the Cowboys’ record to 8-7, a game behind division leader Washington.

Saints Looking to Win Out, Playoffs or Not

Saints guard Jahri Evans acknowledges a measure of regret that it took so long — probably too long — for New Orleans to resemble the playoff contender it had been the previous three seasons.

Evans says the Saints' 41-0 victory over Tampa Bay on Sunday offered a glimpse of how New Orleans should have played earlier this season.

Still, Evans and his teammates say winning out matters whether they make the playoffs or not.

Tulane says injured safety Devon Walker cannot get around on his own but will be home for the holidays.

A statement released Monday by Tulane says "Devon is not yet mobile" but works daily to get better.

Drew Brees broke out of his recent slump, throwing for 307 yards and four touchdowns and zero interceptions.

Saints-Bucs Sunday Preview

The New Orleans Saints return home this week for a Sunday afternoon matchup in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome against division rivals Tampa Bay.

It’s been a rollercoaster season for the Buccaneers and the Saints as both two clubs come into this weekend’s matchup clinging to very slim playoff hopes.

The two teams met earlier this season in Tampa, where the Saints escaped with a wild 35-28 victory in a game that featured a dramatic goal-line stand by the Saints’ defense and a game-tying touchdown by the Bucs waved off due to a penalty on the last play of the game.
