Tonight’s edition of Sunday Night Football features two division leaders in the NFC.

The Dallas Cowboys are playing some of the best football in the league through three weeks and it has vaulted them to a 3-0 record in the NFC East. Dak Prescott and company have been outstanding this season, racking up over 30 points in all three games so far. Ezekiel Elliott is no slouch either, entering the contest with two consecutive 100-yard rushing games. It is also worth noting that fellow running back Tony Pollard also rushed for over 100 yards against Miami last week. This Cowboys team has a diverse arsenal, and it will be a tough task for New Orleans.

The Saints enter Week 4 with a 2-1 record atop the NFC South, but there is plenty of concern for a team looking to return to the NFC Championship. Star quarterback Drew Brees is injured, and Teddy Bridgewater is doing his best to keep the team afloat. Bridgewater had a decent two touchdown performance against Seattle last week, but the Cowboys defense is stout, having given up just 44 points this season. One of those contests was against Miami, sure, but the Saints will need Alvin Kamara to be his usual self if they want to win.

Either way, this should be another exciting installment of Sunday Night Football.
