Saints Win 30-27 Thriller Over Cowboys
The New Orleans came from behind to defeat the Dallas Cowboys, 30-27, in dramatic fashion, on Thursday. Mike Triplett, of the Times-Picayune, has the story, below.
If the New Orleans Saints somehow make their way back to Cowboys Stadium in February for Super Bowl XLV, they may look back to the way they escaped the colossal building Thursday evening with a 30-27 victory — their most thrilling and turbulent win of this season.
Although the Saints jumped to a 17-0 lead, they trailed in the final minutes and needed a heroic fumble recovery by safety Malcolm Jenkins, a beautiful 55-yard pitch-and-catch from Drew Brees to Robert Meachem and a 12-yard touchdown pass from Brees to Lance Moore to bring them back.
In an emotional postgame locker room, it was not lost on anyone that they were celebrating in the same place that will host the Big Game a little more than two months from now.
