Drew Brees is throwing football at practice again. And that is a very good thing for winless New Orleans Saints.
Brees will test the arm leading up to Sunday night’s game against the Cowboys, but still remains optimistic he can suit up and guide New Orleans to a win.
Dallas, meanwhile, has their own quarterback concerns. Tony Romo will miss at least six more games with his collarbone injury. That sets the stage for Brandon Weedon to lead the Dallas offense to a much-needed win on the road.
Here’s what you need to know before kickoff:
Houston Texans vs. Atlanta Falcons
Superdome, New Orleans, LA
Sunday, Oct. 4
8:15 p.m. Eastern
