NEW ORLEANS -- It’s over.

New Orleans’ shot at an unbeaten season came to an end late Saturday night with a loss to the Dallas Cowboys. The Saints, who trailed 24-3 at the start of the fourth quarter, almost staged one of their miraculous fourth-quarter comebacks.

But it didn’t happen. After scoring two touchdowns in the fourth quarter, the Saints had a chance for a last-gasp drive. It stalled near midfield when quarterback Drew Brees fumbled.

I’m going downstairs for the postgame interviews. I’ll be back with more in a bit.
