The New Orleans Saints with Reggie Bush back in the line up will play the Dallas Cowboys on Thanksgiving Day November 25th. Drew Brees looks to be hitting on all cylinders and now he will play a Dallas Cowboys team that is looking to win out for the season and make an unlikely run to play the Super Bowl in their own stadium in February.
New Orleans Saints Offense vs Dallas Cowboys Defense
Drew Brees was off center the first half of the season and now with most of his New Orleans Saints offense healthy, he is now back in his 2009 form. Brees is spreading the ball around to his receivers as he did last season and he now has the added services of his not so secret weapon, Reggie Bush.
Bush brings an added dimension to the New Orleans Saints offense that brings them to another level. With Bush in the back field or in the slot an NFL defense is caught freezing up on the play action pass or fake end arounds. This exposes the defense to the deep play.
The Dallas Cowboys defense was visibly quitting on their coach Wade Phillips just before his ouster a few weeks ago. Now the defense has responded from some tough love by their new head coach Jason Garrett. The Dallas Cowboys defense is a solid defensive unit but their work ethic has been lambasted on every NFL show over the last few weeks. This game will test their mettle and they will have to prove themselves in front of a national television audience. The New Orleans Saints offense has the edge over the Dallas Cowboys defense.
Dallas Cowboys Offense vs New Orleans Saints Defense
Can Jon Kitna lead this high powered offensive unit of the Dallas Cowboys to a win on Thanksgiving against the defending Super Bowl champs the New Orleans Saints? Anything is possible and this group of talented receivers and running backs can get in open space and make any short pass a 70 yard touchdown romp. Look for plenty of short screens to counteract the blitz happy New Orleans Saints defense of Gregg Williams.
The New Orleans Saints defense is based on creating chaos but against this Dallas Cowboys offense they may be forced to back off and sit on routes. Look for the New Orleans front seven to mix up their packages and set linebackers and even front defensive line players across the middle to disrupt the Dallas Cowboys short passing lanes. If the New Orleans Saints are effective in this endeavor there must be prepared for the long ball to Dez Bryant. The Dallas Cowboys offense has the edge over the New Orleans Saints defense.
