New Orleans Saints vs. Dallas Cowboys Recap
October 4, 2015
The Dallas Cowboys had their hearts broken for the second straight week in the early 2015 NFL season, as they lost for the second consecutive time to an NFC South Division team.
Seemingly in control in the final period, the Cowboys managed to tie the score late in the fourth quarter, and actually had an opportunity to get the ball back to try for a game winning field goal. Poor clock management took that chance away from the Cowboys and it was a huge mistake.
Leaving the game tied left New Orleans Saint’s quarterback Drew Brees a chance to steal victory and that he did. A masterful drive down the field, resulted in Brees throwing his 400th touchdown in his illustrious career to give New Orleans their first win in 2015 and even the Cowboy’s record 2-2.
