We all have been waiting for this game tonight as the Saints take on the Dallas Cowboys.

The Saints are on a ten game winning streak and are 4 games ahead of the Carolina Panthers in the NFC South division.

The Dallas Cowboys are on a bit of a winning streak as well.  The pokes have won their last three games and are tied for first place with the Washington Redskins in the NFC East.

The Saints have a opportunity to not only win the division tonight but also lock up a playoff spot.  To win the division, the Saints need a win tonight and a Carolina Loss/Tie or a New Orleans Tie and Carolina Loss.

For the Saints to clinch a playoff spot tonight it's easy.  The Saints win and they are in.  But there are a couple other scenarios.  Saints tie plus a loss by Washington and Seattle.  Another way is a Saints tie and a loss by Washington and Minnesota.  And the last scenario is a Saints tie and a Washington loss and Seattle and Minnesota tie.

That's all confusing huh?  Lets take the easy route.  Win tonight's game and we are in!

The Saints and Cowboys lock up tonight at 7:20pm and the game will be televised on Fox and NFL network.  If you can't be by a TV we will broadcast the game on the air here on Gator 99.5 starting at 5:30pm.
