Here’s your chance to relive what fans of other NFL teams were thinking while they were watching the Cowboys outlast the Saints - via the comments made by those fans while watching the game.

It’s always good to get a perspective from outside of the bubble, and this will give us all a glimpse at how other fans view the Cowboys. Thanks goodness for a victory, otherwise it wouldn’t be so fun to go through all of these comments about the Cowboys.

Saints I have a feeling the Saints pull this one off. I have no logic to back up this feeling.
snapp44 |20:06 EDT
Packers Dallas should win this one. The Saints are really beat up. But their defense is still good and I don't like to bet against Sean Payton.

Mr. Mango |20:58 EDT
Saints This is why you draft receivaaaahs!
Aaron90 |20:58 EDT
Eagles Sucks that Gallup is the 3rd Dallas WR and is better than all the Eagles WRs except for maaaaybe Smith.

ZipCode70816 |21:39 EDT
Panthers Parsons is a freak of nature, wait until he settles in and get his instincts up to par in pass coverage.
adam carter |21:40 EDT
Saints Please sign Gallup in FA.
Mr. Mango |21:40 EDT
Saints Another team that has 3 receivers better than our best. We are not good.
Biddy44 |21:40 EDT
Eagles Those Dallas WR catches are unbelievable. Eagles just don’t have anyone that make these plays.
EagleTruth |21:41 EDT
Saints I gotta say those Cowboys sure do know how to get their feet down.
ZipCode70816 |21:41 EDT
Saints So this is what real NFL WRs look like? Cool.
Phantom_Floyd |21:41 EDT
Falcons In all seriousness, where the hell was this kind of defense when Dan Quinn was in Atlanta for 6 years?!
ATLFan57 |21:43 EDT
WFT Parsons going to be a MAJOR problem.
Czechurself |21:45 EDT
Saints Lamb is better at his position than ANY Saints player is at theirs. FO better step up its draft game ASAP.
Aaron90 |21:46 EDT
Seahawks Neither of these teams seem concerned about "establishing the run".
uwhusky1991 |21:47 EDT
Saints At least Hill didn’t throw a pick-six in this half? Looking for something positive, anything…
mjxs |21:48 EDT
Saints At least this game is a heck of a lot better than the last two...for sure. They don't look totally incompetent.
ZipCode70816 |21:49 EDT
Wait until the second half

Eagles Moore looks like a Mormon!
Dawk4life20 |22:13 EDT
Saints I'm all for Hill running until they can stop him...This will open up the bomb play Payton wants so badly.
ZipCode70816 |22:16 EDT
Saints Damn...that was such a nice drive...until it wasn't.
ZipCode70816 |22:18 EDT
(8:31) NO field goal is GOOD

(13:32) D.Prescott pass to C.Lamb to DAL 31 for 25 yards
Saints These WRs are ridiculous.
Mr. Mango |22:51 EDT
Saints How the heck all these other receivers making those kind of catches?
ZipCode70816 |22:51 EDT
Giants Another big game for Parsons. Thinking back to the draft - if I’m not mistaken, he was available to us. But, someone decided to trade down and take a WR that is rarely on the field. That kind of decision making should get someone fired.
ronrat2 |22:52 EDT
It's making sick watching Parsons and knowing he could have been a Giant.
Graymatter29 |23:20 EDT
Don’t be fooled. The Giants would never have been smart enough to change his position from linebacker to defensive end
OnceAGiantOnlyAGiant10 |23:35 EDT
Raiders Why didn’t we draft Lamb??? Never listen to fans, GMs.

Saints Cowboys know our offense can't do squat in the passing game...they don't need to really do anything else to win.
ZipCode70816 |23:19 EDT

Saints Man the Cowboys have a player in Parsons
USMCSAINT1024 |23:42 EDT
Packers I've never admitted this publicly, but I really do like the Cowboys blue uniforms. Believe my distaste for the organization would be much less if they had been wearing them at home all these years.
