The Saints’ defense had an impressive performance against the Cowboys’ offense 2 weeks ago, as the visitors could only muster one touchdown all game long.

There was a reason for that.

Saints’ players told’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.

Yeah, they went that far back.

The 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.

Moore was Boise State’s starting quarterback from 2008 to 2011.

This could end up back firing later as the two team’s might end up meeting each other later on down the road in the playoffs. Now that they’ve tipped their hands, Moore is sure to change it up going forward.

It was just in last year’s playoffs loss to the Rams when the their offensive line stated the Dallas’ defensive line was tipping off their coverage.

Head coach Jason Garrett can’t be too happy about this.
