Dallas Cowboys vs. New Orleans Saints
A rivalry that is polarizing among southern football fans, the New Orleans Saints and Dallas Cowboys are two of the best teams in south, attracting sizeable fan bases as a result. The teams first started playing in 1967, and have had a total of 28 meetings, all of which have come in the regular season. With three games between the two teams going to overtime during that span, the rivalry has had no shortage of drama.
Key players in this rivalry include some all-time greats on both sides, with the Cowboys bringing out legends such as Troy Aikman and Emmitt Smith, while the Saints have brought players like Drew Brees and Ricky Williams into battle at different points in time against the Cowboys. These two teams have relied heavily on offensive firepower throughout their franchise histories, so it makes sense that offensive stars are what fans remember most about their games against one another.
Historic Cowboys vs. Saints Games
The first of three overtime games between the Saints and Cowboys came in 1984, in a 30-27 win for Dallas. This game had everything, including two interceptions of Ken Stabler by the Cowboys, a Tony Dorsett touchdown, and a couple of Morten Andersen field goals during one of his 382 games played in his illustrious NFL career. The game was won in the overtime period on a Cowboys field goal from 41 yards out.
New Orleans got revenge on the Cowboys in another overtime contest in 2012, when they got a 34-31 win in Dallas. Both quarterbacks in the game, Drew Brees for the Saints and Tony Romo for the Cowboys, threw for over 400 yards in the game, a game where both offenses were playing about as well as it is possible to play on that side of the ball. New Orleans moved the ball down the field at will in the overtime period, connecting on a Garrett Hartley chip shot field goal to secure the win.
But perhaps the most fun overtime game between the Saints and Cowboys came in the 2015 season, when the Saints got the better of the Cowboys in a truly electrifying finish. After regulation, with the game tied at 20, the Saints used overtime to flip the ball to running back CJ Spiller, who took the ball 80 yards for the game winning score, in a moment that was as exciting as football can be.
