Drew Brees gets touchdown pass No. 400 in style as he leads the Saints to an OT victory over the Cowboys. Brees joins Tom Brady, Brett Favre, Dan Marino and Peyton Manning as only QBs to accomplish the feat.

SAINTS 26, COWBOYS 20 (final): The good feelings of a fourth-down touchdown catch by Terrance Williams could last only so long. With some luck the Cowboys got to overtime but it didn't last long with C.J. Spiller's 80-yard TD on the second play of overtime. The Cowboys have lost two straight and welcome New England to AT&T Stadium next week.

A little perspective: Per Elias, this has been the worst week of NFL kicking since way back in … 2013. Deep breaths, everyone.

With the New Orleans win, the Lions -- for now -- are the lone winless team in the NFL. Detroit plays at Seattle tomorrow night.

Saints' Zach Hocker misses 30-yard field goal off left upright with a chance to win first game of the year. They're heading to overtime against Cowboys now.

Fair to say the Cowboys season may have been saved by the left upright inside the Superdome? Zack Hocker's 30-yard try clanged off the bar and the game is headed to overtime.


Hocker's 30-yard FG is NO GOOD! Wow. What a game. #DALvsNO 20-20. We're going to OT.

Terrance Williams held without a catch last week vs. Atlants and comes up with a fourth down TD catch to keep Cowboys alive. Gutsy throw by Brandon Weeden too.

Ed Werder @Edwerderespn

Brandon Weeden has not played like backup QB who has lost league-high 9 straight starts. Game-tying TD to Terrance Williams on 4th-and-7

From ESPN Stats & Info: The 13 sacks by the Packers' defense in the last two games combined are tied for their most in a two-game span since sacks became an official stat in 1982; and it's the first time they have ever had at least six sacks in consecutive games.

Saints lean on their RBs to take 20-13 lead over Cowboys. 9-yard pass to Spiller, runs of 15 and 8 yards by Ingram, 1-yard TD by Robinson. Have a chance at their first win of the season with less than 7 minutes remaining.
