New Orleans Saints 30 @ Dallas Cowboys 27: Who Dat Say?!


Thanksgiving Day 2010 is now a memory, but what a memory the finish to that game is.  Jenkins' strip/recovery (we have got to come up with a cool name for that play ala "Meacharound") and the subsequent zip-zoom TD drive by Brees & Co., followed by a near-miss 59-yard FG by the Cowboys that would have tied the game with less than 30 seconds left - BAM! 8-3, here we are.

Now we have a long week until we face the Cincinnati Bengals at Paul Brown Stadium on December 5.  Let's savor this sweet victory with news, notes, tweets, and videos.

jeffduncantp Credit the Cowboys for a great comeback. They could've folded. Win or lose, this performance should solidify Garrett's candidacy as HC.
jeffduncantp The Cowboys lived & might have just died by their man-to-man coverage. The Saints kept throwing haymakers & finally hit one.
jeffduncantp Wow. It looked like Sean Payton tried to call a timeout just before that missed FG and the official didn't give it to him.
jeffduncantp And finally the Who Dat chants break out at Cowboys Stadium.
