The Saints (13-0) are currently preparing for a desperate Cowboys (8-5) team looking for the back door into the play-offs, Dallas is currently sitting on yet another December decline and an 0-2 record to date.
New Orleans hopes to keep the magic of this season alive and once again set a new mark for the most wins in franchise history with a hopeful shellacking of Dallas.
If they should win, coupled with a Vikings loss, they will secure home field advantage through the play-offs as they have already clinched the NFC South crown to go along with a first-round bye.
Brees leads all players in Pro Bowl voting and as of late has made an increasingly strong case for the leagues MVP award with phenomenal play throwing for 1100 yards and ten touchdowns in his last three games.
However the biggest story in the NFL is not Brees’ play but the tragic loss of Bengals wide receiver Chris Henry who passed away Thursday morning after sustaining catastrophic head injuries stemming from a fall from the bed of a pick up truck driven by his fiance.
Henry, a Louisiana native, succumbed to the injuries after an overnight battle and the case is currently being investigated by Charlotte, N.C. homicide detectives in a effort to determine if Henry was pushed from the truck or fell on his on accord.
Henry jumped into the back of the pick up truck as his fiance drove away from the home after an alleged domestic dispute between the couple.
