NFL Week 16 Free Pick: Take the Saints. According to latest NFL trends, the underdog has covered the spread in the last 7 meetings between these teams and the Saints are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 meetings with the Cowboys. The road team has won the last four games between these two teams, with the Saints getting three of those victories. Despite New Orleans having nothing to play for, Drew Brees is a competitor and he will come out firing. The Cowboys have been known for letting games slip away at the end of the season and the pressure is suddenly on them as they are now in a three-way tie for the NFC East lead. This game should be close, but I could see the Cowboys making a crucial mistake late to let the Saints sneak out a victory.
