4. Dallas Cowboys @ New Orleans Saints (Thursday Night Football)

The Cowboys vs. Saints game comes in fourth on this list. It seems as if every time these two teams play, defense plays a major role.

This will also be the third time in four years that the Cowboys and Saints will play in a primetime game.

In 2019, the Cowboys lost 12-10 in a defensive battle that featured Prescott only throwing for 223 passing yards and one interception.

Then, one year prior, Dallas defeated New Orleans in a tough 13-10 victory. This victory ended the Saints’ 10-game winning streak at the time.

Even with quarterback Jameis Winston likely under center for this game, this matchup will possibly focus around Dallas’ offense versus the Saints’ defense.

In two games against this vicious New Orleans defense, Prescott has just 472 passing yards, one passing touchdown, and one interception.
