On Thursday Night Football, the Dallas Cowboys defeated the New Orleans Saints, 27-17. Dallas used a very strong defensive scheme to halt all aspects of the Saints’ offense. Saints’ quarterback Taysom Hill might have run for over 100 yards, but he also threw four interceptions, including one pick-6. The Cowboys move to 8-4, further solidifying their lead in the NFC East, while the Saints fall to 5-7 and still fight for a playoff spot.
Also, on Thursday night, there was a new record set in the NBA. The Memphis Grizzlies defeated the Oklahoma City Thunder, 152-79. The 73-point differential became a new league-high, as this game now holds the greatest margin in NBA history.
