Well that was fun.

The New Orleans Saints destroyed the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday Night Football in Week 10 49-17 and set records along the way.

Those 40 first downs? That’s an NFL record.

That 625 yards of total offense? Not many will be able to stop New Orleans when it is on a roll like that.

Heck, that 145 yards and a score from Mark Ingram has to mean something, right?

Here’s Mike Triplett’s thoughts on the big win and Super Bowl chances:

Not quite yet. All this performance did was validate that the Saints (7-2) have as high a ceiling as any team in the NFL. But they need to prove they can do it consistently — and they’ll get that chance under some much more difficult circumstances over the next six weeks. If they look anywhere near this good against a physical 49ers team at home next week, then at Atlanta on a Thursday night, then at Seattle on a Monday night, then you can start looking into February flights to New York.

We’re going to have to disagree this time. Sure, the Cowboys have a horrible defense (thanks for Rob Ryan!), but a Saints offense that can roll like this without major contributions from Jimmy Graham makes for an unstoppable team.

Enjoy the ride.
