The Cowboys fumbled repeatedly as their offense sputtered, but the Saints couldn't cash in on the opportunities. Starting quarterback Bill Kilmer retired to the sidelines with a sprained ankle In the early going and the Cowboys had a field day stealing passes thrown by Karl Sweetan, the Saints' backup quarterback.

Morrall connected with Willie Richardson for a 13-yard touchdown pass in the second period, climax of a 64-yard drive in nine plays that Included four passes.
