The Saints travel to Dallas for a 2nd straight Thursday night game this week. The Black & Gold have won 10 in a row and go into this match-up owning the top spot in the NFC.  The Cowboys have started to warm up, having put together 3 straight victories.  That has them on top of the NFC East at 6-5. Their owner Jerry Jones knows that in order to be the best you have to beat the best and wants his team to come out like it's their last game when they take on New Orleans.

"The opportunity to play a team of this stature, at this time, is real exciting," Jones said on 105.3 The Fan's Shan and RJ show. "If you can beat a team like New Orleans, that is really capable as it is, that lifts you. That would really lift our team."

The Saints own the top scoring offense in the league, putting up 37 points per contest. But, the play of the defense has been the missing piece to the championship puzzle over the past few years.  This season is much different.  The Fleur Di Lis D has formed into a run stopping beast that is also getting after the quarterback and creating turnovers. Jones says Dallas will have to treat this big game in AT&T Stadium like THEE big game.  

"Each play, we've got to think it's the Super Bowl play," said the Cowboys owner. "If every player on every play in this game says, 'When we put that tape on Monday, it's going to look like one of my best plays of the year,' it's really going to take that kind of focus to beat a team like this."
