Redskins blow 15-point lead, suffer crushing loss to Saints

The Redskins have had several games this season that they could have put teams away a lot earlier but allowed for them to get back in the contest. The Saints haven't asked Brees to be Superman during their win streak because the defense and run game have been so good, but he sure played the role when needed on Sunday.

The Redskins running back was carted from the field with his right leg in an aircast following an ugly injury in the third quarter of Sunday's game against the Saints.

While the Saints have lost three of their last five games to the Redskins, that should not be the case in this Sunday's game.

The Saints defense appeared less dominant than in recent games, giving up some big plays - most glaring, blown coverage on two second-half Redskins touchdowns that helped seal the outcome.

Drew Brees and the ascendent New Orleans Saints were having a decidedly "meh" game for most of the day against Washington. And Kamara's bobbling 18-yard TD catch went from a possible disaster to a thrilling moment.

The final drop in win probability had to wait for overtime, as the Redskins squandered the final 1:05 of regulation with a drive that included a botched screen pass that led to an intentional grounding penalty that dropped them out of field goal range.

In the third quarter, with a 4-point lead, the Redskins surprised the Saints with a fake punt deep in their own territory.

Cousins completed 22-of-32 passes for 322 yards and three touchdowns.

But Ingram evened the score, after a four-play, 80-yard Saints drive, powering into the endzone from 36 yards out to end the quarter 10-10. They then picked up the two-point conversion as Alvin Kamara walked into the end zone untouched.

Cousins also had a 16-yard touchdown pass to running back Chris Thompson in the first half.
