The Cowboys are rapidly running out of players on defense, at least good ones.
The Saints have Drew Brees, and that’s hard for any fully stocked defense to stop.
Brees is Ginsu-sharp in the first half, hitting 26-of-30 passes for 252 yards and three touchdowns, to pace the Saints to a 28-10 lead over the Cowboys at halftime.
The Saints have rolled up 329 total yards in the first half, against a Cowboys defense that lost linebacker Sean Lee early, and has seen defensive end DeMarcus Ware in and out of the lineup.
Meanwhile, Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo has 20 passing yards. The Cowboys had a solid drive running the ball early, but they’re running out of time to run now.
