Saints Crush Cowboys on Sunday Night Football
Sunday was another big day in the NFL, especially for some of the league's elite quarterbacks.
In New Orleans, the Saints spanked the Dallas Cowboys 49-17 on Sunday night with Drew Brees completing 34 of 41 passes for a total of 392 yards and four touchdowns. Brees' touchdown passes went for 52 yards to Kenny Stills, 22 yards to Marques Colston, 28 yards to Darren Sproles and a yard to Pierre Thomas.
The loss dropped Dallas into a tie with Philadelphia atop the NFC East.
Dallas was frustrated offensively for much of the game against a defense that has turned around dramatically under coordinator Rob Ryan, fired by the Cowboys after last season.
Making matters worse for Dallas was a hamstring injury to linebacker Sean Lee, the Cowboys' leading tackler.
