The Dallas Cowboys will face off against the New Orleans Saints on Thursday Night Football. Dallas is coming off its second straight loss of the season but still sits atop the NFC East with a 7-4 record.

The Saints (5-6) are on a four-game losing streak coming into Thursday night's game and will make a change at quarterback to help salvage their season.

New Orleans was dealt a devastating blow when starting quarterback Jameis Winston suffered a season-ending ACL injury in Week 8. Sean Payton decided to start Trevor Siemian over Taysom Hill for the last four weeks but Siemian was unable to pick up a victory. Now Payton and the Saints' offense will rely on the versatility of Hill to provide a spark.

Hill started four games at quarterback for New Orleans last season, going 3-1 and throwing for 834 yards and four touchdowns. He also ran for 209 yards and four touchdowns.

Running backs Alvin Kamara and Mark Ingram are expected to return on Thursday giving the Saints plenty of firepower against a Cowboys defense that gave up 143 total rushing yards to the Las Vegas Raiders on Thanksgiving.

Dallas will look to take advantage of a Saints squad that struggled to contain Josh Allen and the Buffalo Bills' passing attack last week. Dak Prescott is coming off a 375-yard, two-touchdown performance in the loss to the Raiders. Michael Gallup and Cedrick Wilson each went over 100 receiving yards in the game. With Ceedee Lamb likely to return, the Saints' secondary might have their hands full.

The Cowboys will have to win without their head coach, Mike McCarthy who tested positive for COVID-19 earlier in the week.

Defensive coordinator Dan Quinn will assume McCarthy's duties in the interim and try to get Dallas on track before a crucial stretch of divisional matchups to end the season.
