Saints vs Cowboys Week 13 announcers for TV and live stream
The New Orleans Saints play their second straight Thursday night game, this time against the Dallas Cowboys. Who is on the call for this NFC showdown?
As the Saints enter the “primetime portion” of their 2021 schedule (the Bills game marked the first of four primetime games over the next five weeks), they’ll be getting the more well-known announcers calling their games.
This week is no exception to that rule, as the black and gold prepare to take the field on Thursday night once again. The difference, however, is that last week’s Thursday night game wasn’t the traditional “Thursday Night Football” on FOX but rather a special edition airing on NBC.
This week, however, the Saints will be on the traditional “Thursday Night Football” and it’s a must-win matchup for New Orleans.
Who’s calling the Saints/Cowboys game on Thursday Night Football?
Since the game is airing on FOX, the broadcast team for this one will be Joe Buck, Troy Aikman, and Erin Andrews. Buck and Aikman are in the booth while Andrews is on one of the sidelines (typically the more high-profile team, so don’t be surprised if she’s on the Cowboys‘ sideline for this one).
This isn’t the first time NOLA has had this broadcast team for their games. This was the crew who called their Week 1 blowout win over the Packers and also the surprising win over the Buccaneers in Week 8, which was the last time New Orleans won a game (and Buck wasn’t even in the booth due to calling the World Series).
With the Saints going 2-0 with this crew calling the game, maybe it’s the kind of good luck charm they need entering a must-win matchup. As we know, the Saints have dropped four straight games after beating the Bucs and sitting on top of the world. Since that time, injuries have really hurt them and their quarterback and wide receiver play both been terrible.
Will Buck, Aikman, and Andrews be a good luck charm to the New Orleans Saints once again?
