That looked like a really serious injury for Lance Dunbar. Anytime a player doesn't care what happens to the ball, it's bad

COWBOYS 10, SAINTS 7 (HALFTIME): Drew Brees is 17-of-20 passing for 115 yards, but the Saints offense has only had one good drive (an 80-yard TD drive in the first quarter). They have gained a total of 51 yards on their other four possessions, and Brees was lucky to avoid two interceptions while being hit several times. New Orleans’ defense has held up OK but was plagued by five penalties against the secondary – four of them on Dallas’ TD drive.

COWBOYS 10, SAINTS 7 (halftime): For the second straight week the Cowboys have a lead after two quarters. They weren't able to hold it vs. Atlanta. Can they do it vs. New Orleans? If they do, they will have to do it without Sean Lee, who has been ruled out with a concussion. They will need the offense to stay mistake free.

Saints' Drew Brees looking healthy. He has completed 9 of 12 passes including a 3-yard TD pass to Josh Hill for a 7-3 lead over Cowboys. That TD pass also marked the 5,000th completion of his career (third in NFL history) and 399th TD pass (fifth).

RB Todd Gurley said he might "think about it tonight" but has no regrets about eschewing his first NFL touchdown to ice the Rams' win. Gurley could've scored on his final carry but knew falling down in bounds would end the game. QB Nick Foles called it a veteran move that doesn't surprise him considering the rookie running back's savvy approach.
