The high-flying New Orleans Saints take their show on the road tonight, heading to Dallas to take on the Cowboys on Thursday Night Football. It is a big game for both teams.

The Saints are trying to maintain their hold on the No. 1 overall seed in the NFC. Right now, they are tied with the Los Angeles Rams, who are also 10-1, but New Orleans has the head-to-head tiebreaker since they beat LA this season.

Dallas, meanwhile, is 6-5 and tied with the Washington Redskins for the lead in the NFC East. Right now, the Cowboys look like the favorites to win the division, and a win tonight would be a major statement.

The Saints are favored by a touchdown in Vegas, but what is ESPN predicting for the game? The latest projection from the Worldwide Leader is out.

The FPI gives New Orleans a 61.8 percent chance to win.

FPI projection for Saints-Cowboys.

Cowboys-Saints kicks off at 8:20 p.m. ET from AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.

You can catch the action on FOX, NFL Network or on Amazon.
