Cowboys' win over Saints was historic in two ways. Jerry Jones and fans now wait to see if there proves to be a third

In at least two ways, the Cowboys' 13-10 victory over New Orleans Thursday night classifies as historic. Owner Jerry Jones believes and Cowboys fans are hoping there will prove to be a third way.

Before we get to that, let's note that 22.2 million viewers tuned in for the game -- an enormous number and an NFL record for Thursday nights. If anyone is still railing against the unfairness of these nearly mid-week events, it's going unnoticed.

Then there was the historic manner in which defense stood up and took a bow. I would argue that the two biggest games of this season produced 54-51 and 13-10 results.
