ARLINGTON, Texas -- The go-ahead touchdown came on a fantastic throw from Saints quarterback Drew Brees.
Brees threw a 12-yard touchdown pass on a slant to Lance Moore with 1:55 left in the fourth quarter to give the Saints a 30-27 lead over the Cowboys.
Brees' throw went over the heads of safety Gerald Sensabaugh and cornerback Mike Jenkins. Moore ran a nice route inside, and Sensabugh bit slightly on the play action. Moore got behind both Sensabaugh and Jenkins, but it was still a difficult throw to make because an underthrown ball might have gotten picked off.
"Anything over would have been out of bounds," Jenkins said. "He made a heck of a throw."
Brees, who threw for 352 yards, said he was going to Moore the entire way.
"You could potentially get a lot of different looks and actually they gave us a look that really wasn't the ideal look," Brees said. "But that is where the trust factor comes in. I know that he is going to make a right [read], and he did a good job of getting open through traffic and gave me a place to get the ball through and get the touchdown."
