Williams: 'We should be victorious'

IRVING, Texas -- Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Roy Williams looks forward to the challenge of facing a Super Bowl championship team Saturday night.

Except the 13-0 New Orleans Saints haven't ever been to a Super Bowl, much less won one.

"Might as well crown them, right?" Williams said with more than a hint of sarcasm Tuesday. "They're undefeated. It's December. We don't have a chance."

With a straight face, Williams said he is also looking forward to a rematch with the Saints in the Superdome.

"This is a two-round fight, and this is just the first round, in my eyes," Williams said. "I don't know about everybody else, but I think we're going to see this team in the playoffs down the road."

The odds of that happening increase dramatically if the Cowboys (8-5) can win Saturday. If they don't, their playoff hopes will be on the ropes.

But that hasn't stopped Williams from taking on an Ali-like swagger.

"If we pack our bags and show up in New Orleans on Saturday night," he said, "we should be victorious."
