Being a life-long Dallas Cowboys fan, I have to admit I was pretty jazzed up when they rolled to a 14-0 lead in this NFC Semi-Final game! But, reality set in when Drew Brees and the Saints scored the next 35 points to win handily 35-21 and to advance to the NFC title game!
Earlier in this tournament, the Cowboys actually defeated New Orleans, but that was with Brees hurt and Teddy Bridgewater at the helm. Not this game. Brees completed 22 passes for 321 yards and two touchdowns to Michael Thomas, who ended up the game with 125 receiving yards.
The Saints now await the winner of the Eagles-49ers game to see who they will play in the NFC Championship contest.
