Thursday Night Football features a pair of teams that are leading their divisions this week, as the NFC South-leading Saints travel West to play the Cowboys, who sit in first place in the NFC East.

These two teams both played on Thanksgiving Day, with the Cowboys beating Washington in the mid-afternoon game and the Saints defeating the Falcons in the evening. Dallas’ win pulled them even with their divisional rivals on record at 6-5, but gave them the divisional lead based on a better record in division games.

Of course, the Saints have a high-powered offense that has been essentially unstoppable. They lead the NFL with just over 37 points per game, and they have been held under 30 just twice all season — and they won both of those games. Their only loss came in a 48-40 shootout against the Ryan Fitzpatrick-led Buccaneers in week one; since then they have ripped off ten straight victories and currently hold the top seed in the NFC playoff race.

Tune in for tonight’s game, which should be an interesting matchup, and join us here to discuss.
