If the Saints beat the Cowboys in Dallas tonight, they are guaranteed a playoff spot.

Click here for a list of NFL Week 13 playoff-clinching scenarios.

Oddsmakers have the Saints at a 7.5 point favorite.

The  Saints can clinch the NFC South title with win tonight and a Carolina loss Sunday at Tampa Bay.

The 10 - 1 Saints will have to keep pace with the 10 - 1 L.A. Rams to clinch the top spot in the NFC and homefield advantage throughout the playoffs.

You may recall during the Saints' Super Bowl-winning 2009 season, it was Dallas that beat them for the first time that season, ending a streak of 13 straight victories.

The Saints went on to lose two more game to end the regular season on a three-game skid... before going on to win the Super Bowl. 

The last time these teams played was in 2015, when the Saints won in overtime 26 - 20.

After the Cowboys, the Saints travel to Tampa Bay next Sunday to face the only team that has beaten them this season, the currently 4 -7 Buccaneers.

In week 14, the Saints take on the Panthers in Carolina on Monday Night Football.  The cats are currently 6 - 5.

Week 15 has the Saints hosting the currently 7 - 3 Steelers.

New Orleans ends the regular season at home against the Panthers.
