What channel is Cowboys vs. Saints on today? Schedule, time for NFL ‘Thursday Night Football’ in Week 13

The Cowboys head to New Orleans to face the Saints in a NFC battle on ‘Thursday Night Football’ this week.

The Cowboys (7-4) are coming off two straight losses to AFC West teams, the Raiders and the Chiefs. The Saints (5-6) are coming off four straight losses, including a blowout 31-6 loss to the Bills on Thanksgiving.

After getting a whole week off, the Cowboys are dealing with some COVID-19 issues. Coach Mike McCarthy tested positive on Monday. Wide receiver Amari Cooper tested positive back on Nov. 19, but since he is unvaccinated, he’s had to miss the last two games. He’s expected to play on Thursday night. 

The Saints have been dealing with quarterback issues for the last month since their starting QB Jameis Winston suffered a season ending torn ACL. Trevor Siemian started the last four games, so he has yet to win a game for the Saints. Taysom Hill, who started some for the Saints last season, is expected to start on Thursday. He suffered a concussion in Week 5, and has been dealing with a foot injury since.

Here’s everything you need to know to watch the Cowboys vs. Saints game on ‘Thursday Night Football,’ including kickoff time, TV channels and a full ‘Thursday Night Football’ 2021 schedule.
