Playing near the home of suspended coach Sean Payton, Brees threw for 446 yards and three touchdowns. He led a drive to Garrett Hartley's 20-yard winning field goal in overtime, and the Saints damaged the Dallas Cowboys' playoff hopes with a 34-31 victory Sunday.

The Saints all but secured the win when a fumble by Marques Colston rolled forward about 20 yards to the Dallas 2. Jimmy Graham recovered.

The Saints (7-8), who started 0-4 after getting stunned by Payton's yearlong ban in the team's bounty scandal, saw their playoff hopes end with Minnesota's victory against Houston. The Cowboys (8-7) had a three-game winning streak snapped and lost control of their playoff fate.

Dallas lost despite rallying for two touchdowns in the final 3:35 of regulation. Tony Romo, who threw for 416 yards and four scores, hit Miles Austin for the tying touchdown with 15 seconds left in regulation.

The Cowboys' last three games have been decided on the final play. Dallas' best hope for the playoffs rested with the New York Giants' game at Baltimore on Sunday. A Giants loss would give the Cowboys, who play at Washington in next week's finale, a chance to win the NFC East. They also could make the playoffs as a wild card.

If we were able to get a good push up front this game would not have even been close. Felt sorry for Patrick and Robinson, they looked bad.

Re: Saints dash Cowboys in OT, put hurt on Dallas' playoff shot

Saints won. Saints wanted Dallas Cowboys to win adn tried all the could to make them win...sorry for going there. I just feel with the Saints, "Dam n, why get ahead so far and then shoot yourselves in the foot."
I am just getting back from my favorite Saints place to see the game.
OT=any team's win. I hate OT.
I am glad, super happy the Saints won. Don't get me wrong.
Saints won and nothing else matters . Saints won. Period.
7-8 sounds really good. They are on the way to 8-8 and that will be great.
