Stat that mattersWhen Prescott rates 100 or higher in passing efficiency, the Cowboys are 26-1 over the past three-plus seasons. If he has a clean game like the first three games against a defense he should pick apart, the Saints have little shot to win.Cowboys vs. Saints predictionThe Cowboys have too much firepower to finish drives with touchdowns, and then have Ezekiel Elliott play closer in the running game.

Williams have terrible in coverage. Lattimore figures to match up often with top Cowboys wide receiver Amari Cooper, but that can open things up for speedy deep threat Devin Smith (filling in for injured Michael Gallup) and veteran slot receiver Randall Cobb.Alvin, Michael and who else?Alvin Kamara and Michael Thomas are still doing their leading the Saints’ offense thing with Bridgewater in for Drew Brees. But the Cowboys’ bend-but-don’t break defense has linebackers and cornerbacks who can limit the damage. They need someone to step up to help, either wide receiver Ted Ginn Jr. with a deep shot or two or tight end Jared Cook getting open often on intermediate routes for Bridgewater.Garrett vs. PaytonCowboys coach Jason Garrett and Saints coach Sean Payton know each other well from their previous Cowboys ties. Garrett got the better of Payton last year, but Payton, despite a shorthanded team, got the better of the Seahawks’ Pete Carroll last week. Look for Payton to get creative and aggressive at home to try to throw off the Cowboys’ best-laid game plans.
