The Cowboys are hoping to snap a two-game losing skid as they visit the Saints in a Thursday Night showdown in New Orleans. Dallas with be without head coach Mike McCarthy after he tested positive for COVID-19 earlier this week. In addition to a number of assistant coaches who will miss the game, right tackle Terence Steele was also ruled out.
The Cowboys have lost three of their last four to enter at 7-and-4. New Orleans also feels the pressure as it has dropped four straight to fall to 5-and-6. While the offense has been shaky as a whole, Sean Payton could be looking for a change at quarterback this week. The team reportedly is preparing Taysom Hill to start in place of Trevor Siemian, who has failed to get a win in four starts.
