The Saints are hurting and just plain hurtin’.
Without running back Alvin Kamara and both starting offensive tackles, the Saints lost their 5th straight game Thursday night, 27-17 to the Dallas Cowboys. The Saints set a record for consecutive losses in the Sean Payton era.
Quarterback Taysom Hill, making his first start of the season, threw two touchdown passes, and rushed for 101 yards. But, Hill also threw four interceptions and took a sack that knocked the Saints out of field goal range, trailing by 10.
Dak Prescott completed 26 of 40 passes, including a one yard first quarter TD pass to Michael Gallup.
Leading 13-10 in the third, the Cowboys broke open a close game with a 58 yard TD run by Tony Pollard.
Hill, who threw for 264 yards, played most of the game with an injury to his middle finger on his throwing hand.
The Saints fell to 5-7 on the season. Dallas is now 8-4.
