This past week’s Thanksgiving Day game against the Cowboys proved to be a real shoot-out with a much improved team led by interim coach Jason Garrett. Chris Ivory a.k.a. “The Beast” was unleashed against the Cowboys for two rushing touchdowns in the first quarter of the game. By halftime, the Saints had a commanding 14 point lead of 20-6. The Cowboys came into the third quarter with a chip on their shoulders and scored a 60 yard touchdown run by Miles Austin. All the Saints could manage during this time was a 28 yard field goal from Garrett Hartley. Later in the third, Reggie Bush made his comeback; although, it was not the way in which he had hoped. He muffed a punt return, which led to the Cowboy’s unthinkable 1 yard touchdown run by Marion Barber. This brought the score to 23-20, with the Saints holding a mere 3 point lead and the defense beginning to unravel. If Saints fans weren’t nervous by then, they were sweating bullets by the fourth quarter. The Cowboys drove the field with only seven plays and a 1 yard touchdown run from Tashard Choice. This gave the Cowboys a 4 point lead and left me with the same sick feeling I could read on the players’ faces. The 68 seconds it took to regain the lead seemed like an entire quarter. Our savior, “Breesus,” drove the Saints down the field in five plays for 89 yards. The Saints’ victory was sealed with a 12 yard touchdown catch by “Sir Lancelot” Moore. The final score was 30-27 Saints.

In week 13, the Saints face off with the Cincinnati Bengals. The Bengals are ranked eleventh in passing defense and twenty-fifth in rushing defense. Our defense is currently ranked seventh overall in the league. Our passing defense is ranked third, but our run defense is ranked twenty-fourth in the league. With a healthy Traci Porter and Jabari Greer as our corners, I’m not highly concerned.
