Game Night against the Cowboys

"New Orleans Saints vs. Dallas Cowboys...Saturday Dec. 19th...7:00pm CST Louisiana Superdome...Nuff said." -Courtney Roby

(Technically, its 7:20pmCST)

The most expensive ticket in Saints history will probably only hold that record for a few weeks. Saints-Cowboys tickets have fetched the highest prices at Ticketmaster for a Saints regular season game, though the demand for Saints playoff tickets in a month will likely match that intensity. It may even be against the Cowboys.

Meanwhile, the Saints will be without CB Jabari Greer (sports hernia) but seven other players are listed as questionable. We won't know whether they will play until one hour before game time:
DT Sedrick Ellis (knee), LB Scott Fujita (knee infection), DE Bobby McCray (back), LB Marvin Mitchell (hamstring), CB Tracy Porter (MCL), TE Jeremy Shockey (toe), and FS Usama Young (hip).

K Garrett Hartley is listed as probable and was limited in practice this week with a right hip injury. The Saints may make a game-time decision to go back to veteran John Carney.

Both RB Mike Bell and WR Lance Moore could return to action tonight. Both practiced full speed all week.
