Tonight’s prime time NFL bout featuring the NFC’s top team, the New Orleans Saints, and the perennially popular Dallas Cowboys, is now a marquee matchup.
That’s not because the Cowboys are Saints-caliber; the struggling ‘boys are barely over .500 only because they managed to luckily string together victories over even worse teams than them this season. The Saints, meanwhile, are 10-1, and haven’t lost since Game 1 back in September.
The Saints are 2-1 favorites to steamroll the Cowboys and their overrated quarterback, Dak Prescott.
The stars are aligning for Drew Brees and the Saints, who’ve already defeated the one NFC competitor who could later derail their trip to Super Bowl 53 to be hosted in Atlanta, the Los Angeles Rams.
On the AFC side, the New England Patriots are facing increased competition from vastly improved squads such as the Kansas City Chiefs and Houston Texans, who both have built explosive offenses this season.
Smart money is on a New Orleans vs. Kansas City Super Bowl.
