    The visit New Orleans this week looking to build on their 3-0 start to 2019. They may get a lot of help toward that goal thanks to the Saints' being without due to .

    While the Brees injury hangs over everything tonight, Dallas has its own health issues to worry about. Key starters on both sides of the ball are confirmed to miss the game.

    That said, Dallas will miss Gallup this week. The team seemed slow adjusting to his absence early against Miami a week ago, and the competition level will be much higher in New Orleans.
