2019 NFL Parlay Week 4: Dallas Cowboys vs New Orleans Saints
Are the Dallas Cowboys for real? After three wins to start the 2019 NFL season, the Cowboys have made a strong case why they need to be taken seriously, though, beating the Miami Dolphins last week barely proves anything about that point. If the Cowboys truly want to make a noise, they can start by beating the New Orleans Saints on Sunday on the road.
The Saints still don’t have Drew Brees, but they remain a force with a capable backup quarterback in Teddy Bridgewater doing work under center. Nitrogen Sports Blog takes a look at this showdown between the Cowboys and the Saints.

What to know about the Dallas Cowboys (3-0)
The Cowboys roped in another win last Sunday, beating the going-nowhere Miami Dolphins with their eyes closed, 31-6. The Dolphins could have made any team they come across this season look like Super Bowl contenders, but the Cowboys are sure proving to be a force in the league after three weeks of dominant showing.
So far, they are fourth in the NFL in scoring with 32.3 points per game, and top five in scoring defense with just 14.7 points allowed per contest. Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott deserves whatever money he’s asking based on his play this year. On the season, Prescott has 920 passing yards, nine touchdowns, and only two interceptions.
He also owns the best quarterback rating among all qualified players in the league with an 89.9 grade. It’s likely that he’ll continue his success next weekend against New Orleans and its inconsistent secondary that is a big reason why the Saints are just 30th in the league against the pass with opponents averaging 301.7 passing yards against them.
What to know about the New Orleans Saints (2-1)
The Saints’ offense seem to be in great hands, while Drew Brees takes his time to recuperate from a recent hand surgery. Against the Seattle Seahawks in Week 3, Teddy Bridgewater filled in nicely for the injured Brees, passing for 177 yards and two touchdowns without an interception. Running back Alvin Kamara had 69 rushing yards and 92 more receiving plus a total of two touchdowns.
Kamara proved that he can be productive with or without Brees, though, the Cowboys’ defense will be a significant challenge. Nevertheless, he’ll have wide receiver Michael Thomas taking plenty of defensive attention away from him. While Dallas’ numbers on defense are among the best in the league, the Cowboys haven’t faced an offense quite like what the Saints are bringing to them in Week 4.
Fantasy Football spin
- Jason Witten has decided to return to football after a year away from it, and so far, he appears to have made the right choice. The future Hall of Famer tight end is owned in fewer than 50 percent of ESPN leagues despite getting at least three receptions in each of the first three weeks of the season with two touchdowns to boot. He’s no longer a TE1, but he’s someone Dak Prescott clearly still trusts downfield.
- Are you a Jimmy Garoppolo owner? The San Francisco 49ers are on a bye in Week 4, and for those streaming for a quarterback, Teddy Bridgewater is not a bad pickup to fill the quarterback slot on your team. Bridgewater is only rostered in 6.4 percent of ESPN leagues.
- The total has hit the OVER in all of the Cowboys’ last three games away from Arlington.
- The Saints are 8-2 SU in their last 10 home games.
