Cowboys allow record number of first downs

The Dallas defense looked dreadful in a 49-17 loss Sunday to the New Orleans Saints. The defense looked lost and out of sync in giving up an NFL-record 40 first downs and 625 total yards.

Dallas coach Jason Garrett voiced his frustration after the game.

"There just were very few plays that we stopped. They were able to go to a lot of different things," he told ESPN. "They ran the ball when they wanted to run it and Drew Brees did a fantastic job reading coverages and finding the right guy."

Brees certainly did that in throwing for 392 yards and four touchdowns, including a streak of 19 consecutive completions. The Saints did whatever they pleased offensively. That is nerve-racking for Dallas, which has high playoff hopes.

With the loss, the Cowboys and Philadelphia Eagles are tied for the division lead.
