The Dallas Cowboys and the New Orleans Saints are set to play one of the biggest Thursday night games of the NFL's 2018 regular season this evening. Both squads enter on winning streaks - the Cowboys with three-straight while the Saints haven't lost since a season-opening loss to Tampa Bay.

The Saints enter AT&T Stadium as the favorite. The line is likely to move in their favor ahead of kickoff after it was announced the Cowboys will be without a star player.

Left tackle Tyron Smith did not play against the Washington Redskins on Thanksgiving Day. Smith tried to give it a go before kickoff, but ESPN's Cowboys insider Todd Archer reported he won't be playing tonight either.

It's an unfortunate injury for the Cowboys as they take on their toughest opponent of the season. The Saints have been stout against the run this year, and the loss of Smith won't help the Dallas run-game - Ezekiel Elliott will be tested.

The Cowboys and the Saints are set to kick off at 8:20 p.m. E.T. The game will be on FOX.
