Dallas Sports Rant:
It’s another must win game for the Dallas Cowboys this Sunday, as they face off against the New Orleans Saints. As always, the name of the game when playing the Saints is shutting down Drew Brees. Brees has thrown for over 4,300 yards and 36 touchdowns so far on the season, but his completion percentage [...]

The NFC East has been tight all season and the final two weeks are shaping up to be interesting to say the least. Right now, the Redskins and rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III lead the division with two games to play. As you’ll see in our week 16 playoff picture, it’s conceivable that two teams wind up at 10-6 and into the playoffs but I think when the dust settles the Dallas...
After throwing three interceptions in his latest make-or-break defeat, Tony Romo shuffled across a silent locker room, grimacing and looking at the floor.
He dressed creakily. Merely putting on his dark socks appeared to be an ordeal.
Now comes a tougher task for the Dallas Cowboys' quarterback: processing his performance in a season-ending 28-18 loss to the Washington Redskins...
SHOULD I STAY OR SHOULD I GO
There is some speculation that Sean Payton could go to another NFL team, but many Saints players believe he'll be back.
ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) -- Tony Romo and the Dallas Cowboys figure their situation hasn't really changed, even though their comeback came up short in an overtime loss.
They still have to win their season finale on the road against an NFC East rival -- something they have failed to do twice in the past four seasons -- to have a chance to get into the playoffs.
Todd Archer of ESPNDallas.com reported on Thursday that Dallas Cowboys outside linebacker DeMarcus Ware and running back DeMarco Murray have both been fined for infractions during their 27-24 overtime win this past Sunday against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Ware was fined $15,750 for his fourth quarter blow to the head of Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger. On the play Ware...
ARLINGTON, Tex, - Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints won't go to the playoffs in their season without suspended coach Sean Payton. The Dallas Cowboys again need help to get there.
The Dallas Cowboys lost control of their playoff fate Sunday - for about three hours.
Drew Brees threw for 446 yards and three touchdowns and led a drive ending in Garrett Hartley's winning 20-yard field goal in overtime, and the New Orleans Saints beat the Cowboys 34-31 in a game that turned out to be meaningless to the postseason hopes of both teams.
The Saints knew they...
Connor, Albright, Sims, Poppings, Perah, Claiborne, Frampton “Comes Alive”, etc. etc.
We have all heard of the No-Name Defense of the Dolphins and the Dooms-Day defense of the Cowboys glory years.
The Cowboys defense now has to be called the “New-Name Defense.”
There are so many Dallas players getting playing time that I am not even sure who most of them are. DeMarcus...
There is no question the better team won this game on Sunday. The Saints' offense move the ball well and struck perfect balance. The offensive line played well, and while numerous mistakes were made, reflected in a very up and down game, the end result was 34 points scored in a win. What's not to like?
Drew Brees: A+ (2.76) To me this was his best game of the...
ARLINGTON, Texas The Cowboys' "Name Tag" defense got its nickname this season because you can't tell the injury replacements without name tags.
On Sunday against the Saints, the defense really did play like a bunch of guys just introduced to each other.
The Cowboys lost, 34-31, in overtime mainly because they couldn't stop Drew Brees and the Saints' offense...
A couple days ago I wrote a spot addressing the five most important players to keep an eye on this Sunday: Peterson, Romo, Roethlisberger, the Giants d-line, and Russell Wilson. Here’s how it all played out.
Adrian Peterson may not have set the rushing record, but he did do a lot of damage and took all the defensive attention, allowing Christian Ponder to have his first effective...
New Orleans Saints (6-8) at Dallas Cowboys (8-6)
The Cowboys entered December at 6-6 after a rough month of November, traditionally a strong month for them, and it looked unlikely that they would be unable to choke again this December, mostly because there would be nothing to choke away. However, after two straight wins, they are at 8-6 and in control of their own destiny, which...
ARLINGTON, Texas -- Drew Brees passed for 446 yards and three short touchdown passes to lead the New Orleans Saints to a 34-31 overtime upset victory over the Dallas Cowboys before 92,570 fans at Cowboys Stadium. The Saints were playing for nothing more than pride Sunday afternoon. That was enough to beat a team still harboring playoff hopes. Along with a fortunate bounce. A...
Last week: 16 (-1)
Net points per drive: 0.14 (12th)
DVOA: -1.3% (15th)
Weighted DVOA: 1.5% (14th)
The Saints still remain mathematically alive for a playoff spot at 6-8 off a huge blowout home win and now they head to Dallas, where the Cowboys really struggle as home favorites and really struggle in December under Tony Romo (generally). With a home game week 17 against...
