The New Orleans Saints look to add on to their winning streak Thursday when they travel to Arlington, Texas to take on the Dallas Cowboys in a marque Thursday Night Football matchup.

The Saints have won 10 straight games and are nearing the franchise's longest streak under coach Sean Payton.

A win at Jerry World could help the Saints clinch a playoff spot and, potentially, the NFC South division title, but it won't come easy as they face a Cowboys defense that's near the top of the league.

Dallas is also on a streak of its own, winning its past three matchups to take the lead of the NFC East.

Let's do this!

1. Stop Zeke.
2. Lattimore on Amari Cooper. Say goodnight.
3. Cam, Rank, and Davenport all introduce themselves to Dak. 1 sack each.
4. Ingram gets 100 yards.
5. We score on special teams.

Three Keys

Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott vs. Saints run defense
This is the sort of matchup that feels like it will be critical to how this game will eventually play out — the NFL’s No. 1 rush defense versus the NFL’s leading rusher.
There are a couple different ways one can look at the Saints’ outstanding numbers against the run this season.
Some try to discount those numbers as a byproduct of the Saints’ high-powered offense, one that especially lately has been jumping out to huge leads early in the game, forcing teams to play catch up through the air. The NFL-best 73.2 rushing yards per game allowed by New Orleans this season has also been cast aside by some as misrepresentative, the argument being the Saints are a much easier team to attack with the passing game.
But both of those arguments fail to account for the 3.59 yards per carry average against the Saints this season, just a hundredth of a yard shy of matching the Bears’ league-leading total. Maybe teams are not trying to run the ball against New Orleans because they can’t.

Saints RT Ryan Ramczyk vs. Cowboys DE Demarcus Lawrence
Lawrence raised some eyebrows this week when a, ahem, colorful quote of his made the rounds on social media.
"They're going to have to match our intensity," Lawrence said to Dallas media this week. "S---, for 60 minutes straight. If you hit a m-----f----- in the mouth and then they ain't doing what they're regularly doing, putting up 50 points, they start to get a little distressed. Now you got them where you want them at, and then you f---ing choke their a-- out."
Lawrence also complimented the Saints offense, saying the group was like “a Madden team” (referencing the popular video game), but it is fair to say that line did not get nearly as much mileage in New Orleans.
Lawrence has put himself in position to make these kinds of brash statements with his play. He has followed up a breakout 2017 season in which he recorded 14.5 sacks and made the Pro Bowl by recording 8.5 sacks in the first 11 games this season.

Saints running backs vs. Cowboys linebacker Leighton Vander Esch
New Orleans is coming off four consecutive games with at least 140 yards rushing, and it has hit that benchmark in six of its last nine games.
Mark Ingram got off to a slow start after returning from a four-game suspension to start the season, but has settled into a fine groove the last three weeks especially, gaining 259 yards on 40 carries (a 6.5 yard-per-carry average).
With Ingram settling in, Alvin Kamara has started to bust out chunk plays at a higher rate than he was earlier in the season. He has averaged 5.5 yards per carry the last three weeks and has broken five runs of 13 or more yards in those games (he had seven such runs in the first eight weeks).

Your Line 3 Turbo is the key to this game..the Dakster becomes unglued with pressure.

3. Cam, Rank, and Davenport all introduce themselves to Dak. 1 sack each.
