The Dallas Cowboys took their first loss of the season last weekend and it should come as no surprise as their two best players on offense are out for an extended period of time and while they have some viable replacements it just isn't the same without Romo and Bryant in the line up. Dallas heads into Louisiana as a seven point underdog against the winless Saints which should make a statement in itself that the odds makers think the Cowboys are in big trouble but it is still tough to process that they are getting a touchdown against a team who already has a home loss this season to the lowly Bucs. If Joseph Randle can move the ball with effectiveness like he did last weekend than I think the Cowboys can limit their mistakes and keep this game within reason and it is still unclear whether or not Drew Brees will be playing and if he is how healthy will he be?
The Saints have had a very tough start to their season and things didn't get any better last weekend as they were dealt a loss by the 3-0 division rivals from Carolina. New Orleans was expected to bounce back and make a run at the NFC South title but even through three weeks it is evident they are not quite there yet and that they are undergoing some serious growing pains without Jimmy Graham in the lineup. New Orleans has traditionally been a very good home field team and as such they have been given the benefit of the doubt in this match up and as a winless team going up against an undermanned opponent in a game you absolutely must win I can see why the line is so big. However, the Cowboys are great on the road and I think they will continue to run the ball and as such a touchdown seems a little bit too much.
