Saints Nation: Saints Drop First Game of Season, Lose 24-17 to Cowboys

The Saints just couldn't get it done tonight as they were outplayed in all three phases of the game, leading to a 24-17 loss to the Cowboys. Down 24-3 at the start of the 4th quarter, the Saints seemed finished but mounted a furious rally to give themselves a chance to tie the game late, down just 7 points with the football. Unfortunately the Saints' offensive line couldn't hold up, and the team was done in by it's inability to convert on 3rd down throughout the game. You can check out the box score HERE.
