Saints @ Cowboys

Recommended Posts

Quote

 

The Saints have won nine of their last 11 games against the Cowboys and have gone 5-2 against them since hiring Sean Payton away from Dallas prior to the 2006 season. The Cowboys won their most recent home game against the Saints in 2014 but have gone 1-4 at home versus New Orleans since 2000.

New Orleans has won 10 in a row since dropping its Week 1 game to the Buccaneers. The 10-game win streak is the longest by any team in a single season since Dallas won 11 in a row in 2016, and it's the second-longest in franchise history behind a 13-game run in 2009.

Dallas is seeking its first four-game winning streak since 2016. Each of its last three wins has come by one possession, giving the Cowboys eight such games this season. Only the Giants and Eagles (nine each) have played more one-possession games.

Drew Brees has faced the Cowboys eight times in his career and has thrown for 2780 yards, the most in a player's first eight games versus a single opponent all-time. Tom Brady is next on that list with 2604 yards in his first eight games against the Steelers.

Dak Prescott has completed at least 70.0 percent of his passes in two of three games during Dallas' win streak after failing to do so in 13 straight games. In his career, Dallas has gone 12-1 (.923) when Prescott finishes with a 70.0+ completion percentage, compared to 16-14 (.533) when he comes in under 70.0.

The Saints' 409 points are the fifth most through 11 games of a season in NFL history behind the 2007 Patriots (442), the 2013 Broncos (429), the 1950 Rams (415) and the 2000 Rams (412). None of those teams won the Super Bowl.
