New Orleans Saints fans voted the Saints' Oct. 24 contest against the Dallas Cowboys as the team's toughest 2015 home regular season game in a poll on the team's website last week.
The Cowboys earned 49 percent of the 1,148 votes in the poll. Behind the Colts contest, the Thursday night contest (Oct. 15) game against the Atlanta Falcons (20%) and the Dec. 6 Carolina Panthers contest (17%) rounded out the top three in the poll.
Although the Cowboys lead the all-time series 16-11, the Saints have won four of the last five meetings at home.
The Saints and Cowboys will play each other for the fourth consecutive season, with this "Sunday Night Football" tilt the third consecutive time that the game is on prime time.
While New Orleans dropped a 38-17 contest at Dallas in 2014, the Saints defeated the Cowboys 49-17 in 2013 when they set an NFL single-game record with 40 first downs and set the single-game franchise record on offense with 625 total net yards.
