Romo has 2nd highest home yardage total in NFL history. Is going to finish behind Kurt Warner's 2000 season with the Rams. And they're playing one of the league's worst defenses -- despite what we saw last week against Tampa Bay -- so I have to take the over.

Cowboys 34-27. I think this is a difficult game for Dallas. There is an expectation that because this is a home game against a 6-8 team, it's a fairly easy win for the Cowboys. Against the Saints offense, nothing is easy. Anxious to see if Heisman winner Mark Ingram -- mostly quiet in the NFL but over 150 yards rushing the last two weeks -- is a factor.

There aren't a lot of fans of any particular type here. About 45,000 empty seats right now. Crowd not get the word on this noon kickoff?

Tim was complaining about having to carry the load. Here I am to help.

Will be a lot of scoreboard watching today with Giants and Redskins playing early games as well.

My prediction: Saints 31, Cowboys 30. Should be another entertaining game. For the Cowboys to win this game they must control the time of possession and still attack. Holding the ball for six and seven minutes at a stretch and coming out of it wtih a field goal won't serve the Cowboys well against this offense.

Yeah, I forgot the Giants game is later. My bad.

I think the only issues for Dez are when he gets tackled or falls, does he land on the finger. We know he can catch passes from last week.

He would care. He always points out how Cowboys fans pack stadiums for their road games.

Well, he wouldn't want it to be 100 percent. I think if the visiting team has 10-20 percent of the fans it's no problem. Last week was closer to 1/3 or so with the Steelers, but the Cowboys won so I don't suspect Jerry sees it as any real issue. Empty seats are all he wants to avoid.

Claiborne should be good to go today. Play as much as usual.
