It's really no wonder. Take the enthusiasm of the Who Dat Nation, add south Louisiana's endemic passion for food and the results are predictably over the top.

WHEW DAT: Saints Eke Out Overtime Win

The Saints managed to eke out their second win of the season in the Superdome on Sunday, besting the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in overtime, 37-31.

The Saints have now won 10 straight in the Superdome. It was a less-than-impressive victory, punctuated by Drew Brees interceptions, an inability to capitalize on Tampa Bay penalties — and an overly loud train noise piped in over the Dome PA system that caused an uproar on social media and local talk radio.

The Dallas Cowboys beat the New Orleans Saints on Sunday, 38-17.

It was a game described by many on social media as a #dumpsterfire.

Shayne Graham missed a 41-yard field goal.

Drew Brees threw an interception.

Jimmy Graham fumbled the ball, only the fourth fumble of his career.

A Morstead punt-fake went nowhere.
