  • Saints beat Redskins 34-31 in OT, continue 8 game winning streak

Nope. The Saints stormed all the way back.

When you see the play at full speed, it was pretty terrifying for both guys, but primarily Thompson, who very clearly appeared to suffer an extremely painful injury as soon as the play happened.

New Orleans brought a seven-game winning streak into Sunday's game.

But in a methodical 3-minute drive, quarterback Drew Brees marched the Saints 75 yards in eight plays, capping the drive with a 3-yard scoring pass to tight end Josh Hill. But the Redskins followed with a 75-yard drive in six plays to take a 31-16 lead at 5:58 on a 7-yard touchdown pass to tight end Jeremy Sprinkle, who was almost as open as Grant, but wasn't only because he was in the end zone already.

On offense, the Saints, coming off a 298-yard rushing game last week, was held to 160 rushing yards this time. It was one of the best games of the National Football League season. The Redskins quickly took advantage of the turnover, converting a 38-yard field goal for a 3-0 lead. Cousins final touchdown pass, a 7-yard touchdown to Jeremy Sprinkle. That was to be the highlight of the quarter.

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

Mark Ingram scored the only touchdown for the Saints in the first half, on a 36-yard run, tying the game at 10-10.
