Week 13 in the NFL is about to kick off with a potentially hot matchup. The New Orleans Saints could be the best team in football, but they’re going to have to defend that title against a soaring Dallas Cowboys teams.

The Cowboys were dead three weeks ago, sitting at 3-5 after back-to-back losses. However, they’ve since rattled off three straight, including two against divisional foes. With Alex Smith out for the rest of the year in Washington, the NFC East is there for the taking for Dak Prescott and Ezekiel Elliott.

But the Saints have won 10 straight and they’ve taken down some behemoths along the way—okay, just one behemoth that happens to play in Los Angeles. Still, the Saints have taken care of business all year and hasn’t show any signs of stopping since their Week 1 loss to the Buccaneers.

The Saints can clinch a playoff spot with a win Thursday night, and they could clinch the NFC South by the end of the week if they win and the Panthers lose (or tie).

Will they be the first team to clinch a spot in the 2018 NFL Playoffs? Tune in tonight to find out. Here’s how you can watch the game along with us.
