Cowboys hold off the Saints

It took plenty of sweat and stomach acid, but the Cowboys finally got it done. 

The previously undefeated Saints have been defeated.

After a 24-3 blowout melted into a 24-17 nail-trimmer, the Cowboys worked their way into position to put the game out of reach with a chip-shot field goal.

But like two weekends ago, when Shaun Suisham missed a 23-yard attempt that would have put the Redskins up by 10 points with less than two minutes to play, Nick Folk prompted Cowboys fans everywhere to utter a very different four-letter word that starts with “F” and ends with “K” when he bounced a 24-yard try off the upright.

This time around, Saints got the ball back with 2:10 to play, 18 more seconds than when they started the drive that forced overtime in D.C.  Tonight, however, too much of the clock evaporated as they worked the ball toward the middle of the field, with quarterback Drew Brees not having enough time to set up and throw the ball to his primary targets.

Fittingly, the drive ended with a sack from DeMarcus Ware, forcing a fumble that the Cowboys recovered with less than 10 seconds to play.

It was Ware’s second sack and forced fumble on the night; Anthony Spencer had two sacks as well. 

Moving forward, the Cowboys finally have shaken the December monkey off their backs, and they now can focus on nailing down a playoff berth — perhaps getting another crack at the Saints. 

But it won’t be easy.  Dallas sits only 1.5 games in front of the Giants, who hold the tiebreaker thanks to the head-to-head sweep.

For the Saints, the facade of invincibility has been shattered.  They’re now only one loss behind the Vikings in the race for the top seed in the NFC postseason; if the Vikings run the table, the Saints will need to do the same in order to nail down the No. 1 seed.

    The Cowboys did not cow down tonight. I watched the whole game.
    Well, OK. Their kicker cowed down.

    “Only a 1.5 game lead” with 2 games left…….against teams they already beat this year.
    Just wanted to point that out.

    With all seriousness, congrats to the Cowboys and Saints fans, if the Pats cannot win it all I will cheer for the Saints to win it all.

    hehehe…..much as i hate the cowboys, they are no threat to the eagles come postseason. so enjoy your win, dallas. it helps us in more ways than it helps you:
    1) shakes all of lose-iana going into the playoffs
    2) helps our clinching scenario
    3) gives you false hope so the loss you get in week 17 is all the more laughable for eagles fans

    Aints will be exposed come playoff time.

  8. Dilagable says: Dec 19, 2009 11:54 PM

    Thank God. The Saints are a great team but are not the same caliber the Colts are. I am glad I don’t have to hear it anymore. Now the Colts just need to get beaten and I will be happy to not hear anymore of this crap. Good job Dallas and thank you.

  9. boysroll says: Dec 19, 2009 11:55 PM

    I just want to drop a quick phrase to all these anti cowboy haters out there…..
    HOW BOUT THOSE COWBOYS!!!!!
    This game is going to propel us to win the division no question…4skin a definite win AS THEY SUCK and beat down those beagles….
    come on cowboy fans…lets light these anti haters up…..tired of the all the piling on from the 4skin, midget and beagle fans…..

  10. dakotah says: Dec 19, 2009 11:55 PM

    Are there any competent kickers available at this point in the season? UFL retreads? Anybody?

    Who Dat? Da Cowboys.

    I’m waiting to hear what Vox says about this, if he hasn’t already. I guess he is savoring the moment, since he won’t witness a win in January

    The media needs to shut the hell up Romo won the big one and a meaningful game so take that all you haters!!!!!
    Boys 24 The not perfect again Saints 17

  18. THEpackersAREwhere? says: Dec 20, 2009 12:01 AM

    The Saints are either exposed and will exit early, or they really are as good as their record shows. Im having trouble putting anything into New Orleans, as much as I want to. The Saints struggled against WAS, STL, ATL, and CAR kept it close at NO.

    And after a dismal performance by Drew Brees in primetime and Peyton Manning’s great performance in primetime, Manning takes moves ahead in the MVP race.
    And Deion is a moron. On the pregame show, he tried to make an argument that Chris Johnson should be considered for MVP if he gets 2000 yards, even though the Titans won’t make the playoffs and even if the Titans finish 6-10.
    Then a minute or two later, he stated that they should wait until the end of the season to vote on the MVP in case a quarterback stinks it up in the playoffs. If performance in the playoffs has a bearing on MVP vote, NOT making the playoffs should put a big hurt on someone’s MVP chances.

    How will the Hatewagon twist this to say ” This was not really a big game”?

  24. cusoman says: Dec 20, 2009 12:06 AM

    The Cowboys exposed what most have seen all season: The Saints are overrated and a loss was bound to happen before the end of the season.
    All I have to say is that its shaping up to be one heck of a NFC playoff season!

  25. Bob S. says: Dec 20, 2009 12:08 AM

    I told you for dayS Saints would not show up! Jones spent too damn much on a stadium to not allow him to make the playoffs. How’d you like Brees who was in the tank tonight come out with his most dangerous offense in the league and on the first 2 three and outs he handed off once and threw 5 passes all 5 yards or LESS AHEAD OF HIM, a couple behind the line of scrimmage. And as I always say when you WANT to lose you don’t pressure the QB which is what they did on ther first 2 Dallas drives both ending up in touchdowns for a team that hadn’t scored a first drive TD in 17 games!
    Yes, score appeared to be close because Dallas’ choking kicker missed after Saints were forced to NOT pressure Romo because the score was getting too close and he of course marched them right down the field. You know just like the WWF when the wrestler is beat up and nearly dead then miraculously reenergizes and is about to pin the other guy BUT then the other guy revives himself and still beats him. This is today’s FIXED NFL! Another score made tonight! If a guy like that boxer Witherspoon bets $1 million dollars on NFL you can imagine what these NFL owners do.
    Note- a couple years back Indy was undefeated at about 11-0 and a 3 point favorite over Dallas but just before game odds dropped suddenly to even and Dallas easily beat them.
    ON NATIONALLY TELEVISED ONLY GAME IN COUNTRY ALL BETTING ACTION IS ON.
    Giants-Browns 2008
    Steelers-Browns 2009
    Cards-49ers 2009
    Cowboys-Saints 2009
    Giants-Broncos 2009
    etc., etc., etc., …..
    2009 NFL = WWF!

  26. aschles says: Dec 20, 2009 12:08 AM

    I wouldn’t really say they’re no longer invincible….it’s the NFL. They’re still 13-1.

  27. Pervy'sGhost says: Dec 20, 2009 12:08 AM

    Thank God….enough with the Saints undefeated bs Vikings will roll their ass up …you all will see

  28. Favre On HGH says: Dec 20, 2009 12:10 AM

    Saints lost to a good team and put up a solid fight in the end.
    The Vikings lost to the Cardinals and were b*tch slapped the whole night until they cried “uncle.”
    Saints still own the NFC.

  29. darrius_heyward-bey-butterfingers says: Dec 20, 2009 12:11 AM

    Does this count as a playoff win? If so maybe coach Wade can stick around for five more years. This was a HUGE, EPIC WIN afterall, and they proved all da hatas wrong, so that counts as a playoff win in my book. Coach Wade is safe.

  30. Pervy'sGhost says: Dec 20, 2009 12:11 AM

    LMAO…Bet on the Cowgirls to win and they did…next comes the Packers to lose at Pitt….smell the green in my hands

  32. Jrock says: Dec 20, 2009 12:14 AM

    I’m surprised nobody noticed the game clock not starting on the Saints drive that got them within 7 points. I believe it was around 8:38 left to go in the game, ball was snapped Mike bell ran to the left side for 6-7 yards was tackled inbounds, and then the play clock started. A good 5-6 seconds was saved. A buddy of mine and I were waiting for those 5 seconds to come into play at the end.

  33. Favre On HGH says: Dec 20, 2009 12:14 AM

    It is not a Thursday night special if it is Saturday you f**king tards at NFL Network.
    Talk about a half a** run operation, they can’t even make special graphics for a Saturday or a Christmas game.
    Make it a Christmas special(Chargers game), not a Thursday night special on Friday or Saturday you idiots.
    At least their camera work improved, only noticed one goof tonight. Also glad the ambient noise at the casino drowned out Matt Millen, few sound clips I heard were horrible.
    The sports book seems to have the volume much lower for NFL Network games. Hear Sunday and Monday night games just fine.

  34. roscoe says: Dec 20, 2009 12:17 AM

    Nick Folk is getting beat by soap bars wrapped in towels tonight. Even though they won, Dallas cannot feel good about having Folk as their kicker.

  35. chunky soupy sales says: Dec 20, 2009 12:17 AM

    Here’s what a guy on their board said in his “pre game speech”
    Six other opponents have come into our house, into our dome and tried to defeat us. One by one they have been shoved back and beaten off.
    So the Saints like to shove guys back and beat then off?
    WHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAT????

  36. MNFANINAZ says: Dec 20, 2009 12:20 AM

    Who dat!?
    If it wasn’t for that bum Suisham, these scrubs would be fighting for the 2nd seed.
    The Saints will not make it to South Beach… The Vikings are similar to the Cowboys in many ways, only better. New Orleans is in for another playoff ass kicking at the hands of the Vikings.
    Sean Payton knows now what the rest of us have known all along, The Vikings are the team to beat in the NFC… regardless of which dome the game is played in.
    Reminder… the Vikings beat that ass with Gus Frerotte last year… we’ll absolutely KILL you with Brett.
    I’d be evacuating ‘Nawlins if I were saints fans… don’t cry about not being warned.

  37. mad555 says: Dec 20, 2009 12:20 AM

    well, there goes your SB cow blows. How funny would it be that you beat the 13-0 aints and then lose to the just-as-pathetic-racist-skins the next week. Cause you certainly ain’t beating the birds. Don’t get it twisted, you are still # 2 when it comes to feeding time. #1? The Birds of course.

  38. danielcp0303 says: Dec 20, 2009 12:21 AM

    We did what every other team in the NFC East couldn’t do…beat the Saints. Suck it

  39. briano29 says: Dec 20, 2009 12:24 AM

    How hard is it to kick a 23 yard field goal? I’m gonna start kicking them off the tee during this snowstorm and see if I can sign with the Cowboys by tuesday. And they can pay me HALF of what this clown is making . . .

    What an assss you are Florio…how about, the Cowboys now play lowly Redskins and Eagles and with those 2 wins, seal the playoff spot and NFC EAST Champs. And that would complete a sweep of the Eagles and Skins. The Giants still have to win on Monday to even be 1 game back.

    If I truly thought the NFL was fixed, I sure as hell wouldn’t waste any more of my time watching the games.
    Since you do feel that way, you might as well just cut your losses and stop watching the NFL.
    An added bonus is that we won’t be subjected to your consistant stupidity here.

  53. Archie Who? says: Dec 20, 2009 1:13 AM

    Was nice not hearing a peep from the fair weather Cowgirl fans in the last month of every season for the past few years.
    If history is any indication, they’ll disappear just as fast when the ‘Girls lose the next one. And then the Iggles can put them out of their misery until next year.

    Great game. It was only today where I had the feeling they would win. All week long, I was not confident. Good for them!
    Unfortunately, I’m afraid it’s time for Folk to go (BTW, great F and K line, Florio. That was my accurate reaction!). I’m concerned that as soon as we let him go, some team (cough!–the Deadskins) will pick him up and he will get it together again like his 2007 form. DeCamillis is supposed to be a special teams guru…do something to help this guy!

  62. DocBG says: Dec 20, 2009 2:07 AM

    Tough break Saints faithful.
    Incidentally, Drew Brees is a beast.
    Darren Sharper is waaay over rated at this point in his career. Doesn’t have the legs to recover from his “rover” position. It’s a stat smoke screen.

  68. stairway27 says: Dec 20, 2009 2:33 AM

    HaHaha!!!! F-The Saints… Drew Brees is the biggest Homosexual that I’ve ever seen. He looks like a large bird took a shit on his face. I don’t like the Colts, but this proves that Peyton Manning should be the MVP. No more arguments. Drew is a stat whore. That’s all he’ll ever be. He is Baby Marino. In 20 years, no one will remember him, because he still won’t have a ring, and he won’t have the meaningless stats that Marino racked up.

  71. this class sucks says: Dec 20, 2009 3:45 AM

    What ever moron said “Romo won the big one” wouldn’t the Super Bowl be the big one? I mean the Cowboys won, but they have won big games in december before they just have a losing record and haven’t won a game in the playoffs. So what does this win prove? That the Saints can lose? They almost lost to the Rams and the Redskin they were on thin ice for awhile. That the Cowboys can win in december? They have already won games in december, just not many. They could still not make the playoffs for all we know. I mean its a nice win for the Cowboys, but these Cowboy fans are talking like this is some sort of proof that the Cowboys are destined to win it all now. Like the Vikings beating the Packers twice, and Vikings fan think they are the destined to win. It would be like me as a Niner fan thinking that we are going to win it all because we handled the Cardinals.

  72. AmericasTeam says: Dec 20, 2009 3:48 AM

  73. nps6724 says: Dec 20, 2009 4:04 AM

    Saints – 13-1
    Cowboys – 9-5
    Cowboys had to play their BEST game to beat a banged-up Saints by 7 playing a poor game. Congrats on the win, but I’d still rather be 13-1 and already in the playoffs than still clawing for a spot.
    Undefeated would’ve been great and all, but the real prize is in Miami. And the NFC still goes through New Orleans. If you would’ve told me the Saints would be 13-1 at this point, I’d laugh in your face so I can’t be too sad about tonight.

    Your 0-4 in Super Bowls Vikings fans, how are you so arrogant? You have had way better teams than this and still have no Super Bowls? How are you guys so arrogant? Even Cowboy and Patriots fans aren’t this arrogant, and they have had past success.

  77. n0hopeleft says: Dec 20, 2009 6:43 AM

    The Cowboys did what every other NFC east team couldnt do? Wow. The Saints didn’t show up until the end of the 3rd Qtr last night…. Also, that was the Superbowl for Dallas last night. After epic success comes epic failure.
    You do realize you have to play 2 teams that have a history of whooping your ass at this time of year, and spoiling everything for you? Who cares if you beat them in September.
    And you were swept by the GMeN..
    The Cowgirls – lead by the second biggest choke artist of this decade (first goes to McNabb), will falter when it matters most. Again, at the hands of your leader.
    Giants get in – Cowgirls go home.

  78. n0hopeleft says: Dec 20, 2009 6:52 AM

    What is this talk back and forth about the Cowgirls and Philthadelphia being #1/#2…
    YOU HAVEN’T WON DOOO DOOOO in this decade. GMeN have a ring, you have nothing.
    Your NFL Team’s success is measured by RINGS. Not playoff appearances, you losers.
    Cowboys kicking game will not be saved come playoff time. Too late to fix it now!
    Wade Phillips is the fattest tub of corny crap Ive ever seen. Did you watch this guy on the sideline? He looks like a straight up retard.

    And the doubt begins to creep into their minds. Half way to the undefeated regular season resting in peace. A big “come on!” to whoever is playing the Colts the last two games

    If I truly thought the NFL was fixed, I sure as hell wouldn’t waste any more of my time watching the games. Since you do feel that way, you might as well just cut your losses and stop watching the NFL.

    if you thought the president was on a course to ruin the country would you just leave it and say nothing?

  81. SuzyKolberIsAwesome says: Dec 20, 2009 8:07 AM

    if the result of this game means PEYTON GETS ANOTHER MVP AWARD, GREAT, …but it’s all for nothing IF the Colts don’t win the Super Bowl this year…ask TOM BRADY what 18-1 meant two years ago, when people couldn’t wait to call him the GREATEST QB OF ALL TIME, before the Super Bowl game against the Giants, …that being said, whatever the Cowboys problems are in December, Tony Romo is not one of them, he’s played really well, that drive in the 4th QTR was impressive, then Folk misses the FG

  82. Bob S. says: Dec 20, 2009 8:10 AM

    So tell me, who played with energy last night and who didn’t? Dallas or New Orleans?

  83. louisianafootballfan says: Dec 20, 2009 8:19 AM

    Seriously…”the Saints aren’t that good”. Either you’re retarted or this was the only pro football game you’ve watched all season. Frankly, it doesn’t matter whether or not you’re undefeated going into the post season. What matters is that you don’t lose in January. The Saints will have a healthy defense come January, and all of you haters will be wishing we’d saved our one loss for then. The Saints are one hell of a team, and for them to go this far undefeated with a skeleton crew defense really says alot about the grit of this team. Our one loss is still better than the rest of you!

    “Also, that was the Superbowl for Dallas last night. After epic success comes epic failure.”
    If anybody knows epic failure, it’s the Giants. 5-0 to 7-6? A mini-resurgence after benching the vastly overrated Osi Unemyiora? Bench the vastly overpaid Chris Can’ty and they may be onto something.

  85. manofaiki says: Dec 20, 2009 8:57 AM

    We already beat the Eagles and the Skins.
    Now we get to beat them again.
    11-5.
    Giants aren’t going to match that. You win all 3 of your remaining games, 10-6 is the best you can do.
    Tiebreaker won’t mean jack then.

  86. stevemcguigan says: Dec 20, 2009 9:30 AM

    Vox, you lost the right to run your mouth when you disappeared for two weeks. You’re no fan.

  87. FireJerryJones says: Dec 20, 2009 9:32 AM

    Wow. You have to give them credit. Cowboys played with a sense of urgency, in a game that they needed to win.
    Pass rush made all the difference. They got tremendous pressure on Brees with a four man rush.
    Can’t believe there isn’t a better kicker out there than Folk.

  88. LiveNBreatheFootball says: Dec 20, 2009 9:42 AM

    Last night was great. Still in shock.
    But, last year, the Cowboys controlled their own destiny into the playoffs. All they had to do was win their last game and they were in. All they had to do was win. They lost.
    I will not believe the Cowboys in the playoffs come January, until they are actually playing the game.
    Folk AND Roy Williams have got to go. DeMarcus Ware is Superman.

  89. meezle says: Dec 20, 2009 9:45 AM

    I’m glad dallas won, no more saints road to perfection talk, and will only be that much more sweet when dallas loses to the readskins. Then the final game against the eagles won’t even matter…

    Hey NFL Fans…..Look out as I have something to say to everybody…..
    HOW BOUT THOSE COWBOYS!!!!!!!
    We win out and we win the NFC EAST………Look out as we are catching fire going into the playoffs….what is the temp in Feb as I need to get my shorts out? LMFAO.

  94. Bwa Ha Ha says: Dec 20, 2009 10:56 AM

    Glad to see you grew enuff ballz to visit again Vox, must have been a tough two weeks, huh?

  95. Borg30 says: Dec 20, 2009 11:22 AM

    Vox,
    you finally crawled out from your sewer hole.
    still cannot get over how the giants beat your team, not once, but TWICE!!!!

  96. Bwa Ha Ha says: Dec 20, 2009 11:27 AM

    Borg, He was in the witness protection program. You know how it is when ya gotta wear the ankle bracelet? They won’t let you say much of anything

  97. Romo With Game on Line says: Dec 20, 2009 11:41 AM

    Let Vox comment for another two weeks would ya? So what if he’s a fairweather? A lot of you guys are too.

  98. Romo With Game on Line says: Dec 20, 2009 11:43 AM

    So if Dallas goes to Washington and has a letdown game, they can still make a wild card if they beat the Eagles right? They’ll be 3-3 in the division, and 10-6….that should get them in.

  99. Vikes-N-Favre says: Dec 20, 2009 11:45 AM

    What do you know, the Saints came crumbling down. Did anyone expect them to go undefeated? I sure as hell didn’t.
    They needed OT and a lot of help from the officials to beat the lowly Washington Redskins. And they won by 3 against a Atlanta Falcon team that was playing without their starting QB and RB.
    The Saints should realistically have at least 3 losses right now, so them getting beat by Dallas was in no way a shock to me. They are still a good team, but very much beatable by any team that plays them in the playoffs including Green Bay if they do get the WC spot.

    “What’s that term… the one for a guy who hides when things are going tough and then tries to swagger around when things are going well as if they earned it?
    Oh, yes. Pussies.”
    Another word for that word is “whiterhino”.

  101. chunky soupy sales says: Dec 20, 2009 5:34 PM

    “So tell me, who played with energy last night and who didn’t? Dallas or New Orleans?”
    whose fault is it if NO didn’t show up? Pretty sure Dallas D had a little more to do with it than you’d care to admit.
    I know you’re all butt hurt, but you’ll get over it. Or not.

  102. McBleezy says: Dec 21, 2009 3:28 AM

    @Vikes-N-Favre
    Saints got beat by a team that might make it to the playoffs.
    The Vikings got skull drug by the dregs of the NFL with third string players. News Flash: The Vikings really have 3 losses.
    To the Coyboys, as hard as it was to watch, thanks for beating the Saints and giving them a wakeup call that the Lombardi trophy is the real prize and not an undefeated season. I hope that all of our defensive players come back in January so we will have a defense again, I forgot what that is like. It is hard to stop anybody when you are hiring people off of the street to play. It had to catch up to them sooner or later.

  104. itwasn'tme says: Dec 22, 2009 12:49 PM

    @manofaiki
    When the Eagles and Giants both win out the playoffs will look like this:
    #1 Saints 15-1
    #2 Eagles 12-4
    #3 Vikings 12-4
    #4 Cardinals 10-6
    #5 Packers 11-5
    #6 Giants 10-6
    Out of playoffs – Cowboys 10-6
    The tiebreaker will mean something then!
