Simplify the game: Cowboys need help on both sides of the ball

Matt Grassie

The Cowboys need to improve on both sides of the ball if they want to beat the Saints this week. On offense, DeMarco Murray is healthy and the Cowboys should utilize him much more than they have been. On the other side of the ball, Dallas needs to take away what New Orleans does best, which means the league's 31st-ranked pass defense must try to shut down the Saints' high-flying aerial attack.
