  • Redskins collapse in New Orleans; Saints steal 34-31 win in OT

Washington Redskins running back Chris Thompson was carted off the field in the third quarter of Sunday afternoon's game against the New Orleans Saints.

Brees finished 29-of-41 passing, for 385 yards and two touchdowns. You've gotta find a way to win. Quarterbacks get paid a lot for a reason - to win games. "But we just realize we can win anywhere, anytime, no matter the circumstance".

Each team then scored another touchdown; the Saints quickly on a couple of deep passes from Brees and the Redskins with the help of a big pass from Cousins to tight end Vernon Davis for 26 yards.

Thompson, the Redskins' most dynamic player this season, suffered the injury at the end of a third-down run by quarterback Kirk Cousins.

Now 31-16 after the PAT, there was 5:58 left in the game.

"We had 25 seconds left and first down and we were in position where it was the 35 (yard line)", Washington head coach Jay Gruden said. He did it again on the next play to get the first down. "I don't know why it was a penalty, but it was". A late comeback bid fell short as kicker Connor Barth missed a 46-yard field-goal attempt with three seconds to go as Chicago (3-7) dropped its third game in a row.

Redskins defensive coordinator Greg Manusky's unit played well early and the Saints first possession was stopped by another safety D.J. Swearinger interception which Washington converted into three points with a 38-yard Nick Rose field goal.

Saints kicker Will Lutz made a 28-yard field goal on the ensuing play to complete the unlikely comeback for New Orleans, and the awful collapse for the Redskins. Payton said the Saints' execution under pressure in the final six minutes reminded him of some of the victories in New Orleans' Super Bowl winning season.

She has competed in 189 NASCAR races but never found Victory Lane, her best result was a sixth at Atlanta in 2014. Patrick's retirement is another major change in the landscape of NASCAR following this season.

The Giants (2-8) snapped a three-game losing streak in their first home win of the season.

When Cousins & Co. got the ball back, they looked like they were going to move the ball easily down the field, getting two first downs off the bat. "We were talking about it on Friday, and, sure enough, it came up". They had dominated one of the league's best teams, and turned the raucous Mercedes-Benz Superdome into a Quiet Car during the fourth quarter. But, in the end, Brees was special.

NOTES: The Saints lost rookie CB Marshon Lattimore in the first quarter with a left ankle injury after he broke up a pass in the end zone. Rookie running back Alvin Kamara caught an 18-yard touchdown reception, juggling the ball while on the move and eluding Redskins defenders once he finally hauled it in, and ran in the two-point conversion to tie the game at 31-31 with 1:11 left.

It only took two Saints RB Mark Ingram Jr. runs for 20 and 31 yards respectively to get New Orleans into field goal range. Ingram rushed for 134 yards on 11 carries and caught three passes for 21 yards. He hit eight different receivers, four of whom had at least 74 yards receiving.
