Cowboys end Saints' quest for perfect season

Miles Austin caught seven passes for 139 yards with a touchdown in Saturday's upset of the Saints.

The Saints' injury-ravaged secondary had no answer for Austin all night. He burned rookie Malcolm Jenkins badly on a stop-and-go for his touchdown and then abused Mike McKenzie on a shallow slant on a huge fourth quarter play. Austin now has a touchdown catch in four straight games and is averaging 115 receiving yards during that span. He'll look to stay hot against the Redskins next week. Dec. 20 - 12:04 am et
