Cowboys and Saints setting up as a shootout

The Cowboys and Saints are built to play a back and forth game, and it appears to be headed that direction.

The Saints went up early on Mark Ingram’s touchdown run, but the Cowboys bounced back with a 58-yard touchdown pass to Dez Bryant.

It’s early for Bryant to be this involved, so perhaps it’s a good sign for the Cowboys.

Dallas is down another inside linebacker, with Ernie Sims leaving the game with dizziness.

UPDATE 1:58 p.m. ET: And Bryant just put another 58-yard touchdown on the board, to give the Cowboys a 14-7 lead. The Saints have no one who can single-cover him.
