The New Orleans Saints, along with the Indianapolis Cots are the only two teams undefeated this season. Things have not been easy for the Saints as they look to move closer to clinching the NFC’s top seed Saturday night when they host the Cowboys, who are again struggling in December. New Orleans set a franchise record for wins (13) and clinched a first round bye with a 26-23 victory over Atlanta on Sunday. The past two weeks have not been easy for the Saints, as the games have come right down to the wire. The Saints can clinch home-field advantage throughout the playoffs with a win or tie and a Minnesota loss or tie at Carolina on Sunday. Dallas is a team desperately in need of a victory. The (8-5) Cowboys entered December with six wins in seven games but have since opened the month with back to back losses. Dallas came into last December 8-4, but went 1-3 the rest of the way and suffered a season-ending 44-6 defeat at Philadelphia that kept them out of the playoffs. The Cowboys haven’t enjoyed a winning December since going 2-1 in 1996. Despite losing the first spot in the NFC East, with a 3-0 finish the Cowboys could win the division. Dallas quarterback Tony Romo is 5-10 in December. The Saints have won the last five straight matchups over the Cowboys, all in December, with the most recent a 42-17 victory in 2006. The Saints should benefit from a return to the Superdome after the two close calls on the road.

Cowboys vs. Saints Predictions:
Final Score Prediction – Saints 33 Cowboys 30
Spread Prediction – Take Dallas to beat the spread. I think the game will be a lot closer than most people think. Saints quarterback Drew Brees has been on a tear his last four games, completing 73.0 percent of his passes for 1,273 yards with 13 touchdowns and one interception. He will be the difference in this one, look for a late FG to decide this one.
Over/Under – Take the over. There is a reason why the over/under is at 53.5 points. The Saints are averaging 36.7 points at home and the Cowboys are third in the NFL in offense at 403.5 yards a game. Both teams can score at will and look for that trend to continue.
