Why this game is intriguing: Injuries on defense, off-the-field tragedies, late-game adversity ... The Dallas Cowboys have dealt with it all. Yet suddenly, they've won five of their last six and control their own destiny in the playoff hunt. Who would have thought that when they were 3-5? But the 'Boys have a real challenge on their hands: The New Orleans Saints just dropped 41 Tampa Bay's head, while their lowly defense pitched a shutout. Can Dallas' banged-up defense cover enough to limit New Orleans on offense? Sure, the Saints almost certainly won't make the playoffs. But they can make some noise at the tail end of a wacky season.
