Saints Gaining Momentum
After Sunday's 34-19 win over the Seattle Seahawks, the New Orleans Saints have now won three straight games, and have built momentum heading into the Thanksgiving Day match-up with the Dallas Cowboys. James Varney, of the Times-Picayune, has the story, below.

Flashing the sort of offense for which they are famous, the New Orleans Saints built a big lead Sunday and then coasted home for a 34-19 victory over the Seattle Seahawks at the Superdome.
The win was the team's third in a row as New Orleans (7-3) enters a very short week of preparation before playing at Dallas on Thanksgiving.
Coach Sean Payton declined to characterize the Saints as "on a roll," saying he preferred no label at this point. On the other hand, he made it clear the team's strong showing in November, particularly when forced to play short-handed, was positive.
