Maybe it didn’t just seem like the Saints knew what was coming against the Cowboys’ offense two weeks ago, Stefan Stevenson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.
Saints’ players told NFL.com’s Steve Wyche that they learned some of the hand signals from Cowboys’ offensive coordinator Kellen Moore from watching tape of Moore’s playing days at Boise State.
Saints’ players told Wyche that Moore used similar signals while calling plays from the sideline and that it helped them hold the Cowboys to a season-low 257 yards, 15 first downs and 10 points in the first of consecutive losses.
It’s not the first time a team has claimed to know what was coming from the Cowboys. After the Rams eliminated the Cowboys in the playoffs in January, Rams’ offensive lineman said the Dallas’ defensive line was tipping off their coverage.
