Saints Now 1-3 On Season After Loss To Cowboys
The Dallas Cowboys beat the New Orleans Saints on Sunday, 38-17.
It was a game described by many on social media as a #dumpsterfire.
The 24-0 halftime score was the biggest Saints deficit since the arrival of Sean Payton as head coach in 2006. It took until the 11:14 mark of the third quarter for the Saints to even get on the board.
Shayne Graham missed a 41-yard field goal.
Drew Brees threw an interception.
Jimmy Graham fumbled the ball, only the fourth fumble of his career.
A Morstead punt-fake went nowhere.
There were a handful of Saints offensive highlights, like a 62-yard run by Khiry Robinson and two touchdowns in the 4th quarter — but it wasn’t nearly enough.
And Rob Ryan’s defense gave up 190 yards in the air and 262 yards on the ground.
Some more scores from around the state: a return to form for powerhouse LSU with a 67-7 win over New Mexico State. Tulane is now 1-4, and Southern University dropped to 2-3 with a 56-16 loss to Alcorn State.
Thomas Morstead had a 0 QB rating:
Saints drives: Punt, Missed FG, Interception, Punt, End of Half, Field Goal, Fumble, TD, TD, Turnover on Downs, Fumble.
