Cowboys Defense Dominates Saints In First Half

Rams have clear path to No. 1 seed thanks to Cowboys win over Saints

Rams have clear path to No. 1 seed thanks to Cowboys win over Saints

Dallas Cowboys fans held their feelings on comments ESPN analyst Stephen A. Smith made ahead of Week 13 close to the chest.

Dallas Cowboys receiver Cole Beasley sprained his foot in Thursday's win against the New Orleans Saints.

Rams players are generally only concerned with what they can control and that's winning each week, but there's no doubt they watched Thursday night's game and came away pleased with the result. Before anything, here's a look at what the analyst had to say about the Saints vs. Cowboys game, including predicting a 45-21 loss for the home team.

Randy Gregory's initial push moved Drew Brees around the pocket, where an outside move by Tyrone Crawford gave him a free run at the NFL's all-time leading passer.

So when the Saints lined up at fourth-and-goal from the Cowboys' 1-yard line with 10:04 left in the second quarter, trailing 10-0, it wasn't an outlandish notion.

In case those comments, paired with his choice of attire weren't quite enough, he openly told ESPN's Sage Steele that the Cowboys had a "zero" percent chance to win the game.

Unfortunately for Smith, he ended up having to eat his words, as the Saints went on to lose. Here's a look at some of the reactions shortly after. Dallas's defense held New Orleans's offense to 59 total yards in the first half, the fewest total yards the Saints have produced through two quarters since 2002.

Prescott finished 24 of 28 and threw his scoring pass for 16 yards to Ezekiel Elliott.
