The biggest question ahead of the Sunday clash between the Dallas Cowboys (2-1) and the New Orleans Saints (0-3) is the fitness of Saints QB Drew Brees. The veteran QB suffered a sprained rotator cuff in Week 2 against Tampa Bay and was forced to miss last week’s loss to Carolina. In the most recent update given on his status, Saints coach Sean Payton revealed Brees had resumed throwing in training, but his availability for Sunday’s game would be determined later in the course of the week, depending on his response to more playing time with his teammates.In the event that Brees in not cleared for Sunday’s game, backup Luke McCown will make his second straight start for the Saints, going against Dallas backup QB Brandon Weeden, who is guaranteed to make his second start in the absence of injured starter Tony Romo. With both teams in dire need of the win in this Week 4 encounter, which of them will stand tallest in the NFL lines? Read on to find out.
