New Orleans' quest for a perfect season ended at 13 games tonight. Tony Romo and the Dallas Cowboys upset the home team Saints, 24-17. New Orleans nearly staged a miracle comeback after trailing 24-3 early in the 4th quarter, but their final possession ended with a Drew Brees sack and fumble, reports ESPN. The loss leaves the Indianapolis Colts (14-0) as the league's only undefeated team.
