Saints Road Woes Continue with 38-17 loss to Cowboys

The Saints were 3-5 last season on the road, and unfortunately for the black and gold nothing has changed in 2014 when they leave New Orleans.

The Cowboys 38-17 win puts the Saints road record at 0-3 this season.

Tony Romo finished 22-of-29 passing for 262 yards and three touchdowns.

Drew Brees went 32-of-44 passing for 341 yards, two touchdowns and one interception.

Romo was flawless on the Cowboys first drive of the game. He went 7-for-7 passing for 66 yards, finishing with a connection to Terrance Williams for a six-yard score. The drive lasted more than seven minutes.

A Brees interception in the second quarter led to the Cowboys second touchdown of the game.

It took only two plays to make Brees pay for his mistake. DeMarco Murray's 15-yard touchdown run put the Cowboys up 17-0.

Right before half, Dallas struck again. A quick drive that lasted a little over two minutes netted the Cowboys a touchdown thanks to Romo connecting with Williams again. Williams 23-yard score capped a nine-play, 77-yard sequence.

The Cowboys led 24-0 at the half. The Saints registered only a 114 yards compared to the Cowboys 290.

The second half was just as fruitful for the Cowboys offense.

Romo and his crew hit the end zone on their first drive of the 3rd quarter. Murray shook a few tackles and went 28-yards for the score. The Cowboys went up 31-3.

The Saints tried to get back on track the next drive after being down 28, but Jimmy Graham lost a fumble after making a reception.

Finally in the fourth quarter, Josh Hill caught a 12-yard touchdown to give the Saints a trip over the goal line.

On the Saints very next drive, they hit the end zone again. Another tight end, Jimmy Graham, registered his first score of the night with a 13-yard reception.

In the Sean Payton-Brees era the Saints have never been held without a touchdown.
