Saints who sizzled, Saints who fizzled in Week 5 win over Redskins

All Drew Brees did was go 26 of 29 for 363 yards and 3 scores.

Well, for those who were hoping that the Redskins-Saints game might be a big moment for the Redskins, things aren't looking good. Brees and the Saints have that effect on team's statistics.

"I don't know if that will ever sink in", Brees added.

"It has truly been a dream come true". I blame Roger Goodell.

Brees entered the game needing 201 yards through the air to set the mark and accomplished the feat in the second quarter when he flung a pass down the sideline for a 62-yardtouchdown to Tre'Quan Smith.

The Redskins have now lost six straight games on Monday night since their upset win over the Cowboys in 2014 and are 2-14 in their past 16 appearances dating back to 2008. "There was a lot of jabbering going on between both teams there for a little while, but we have to rise above it and understand that there's ramifications if you get in a pushing and shoving match after a play".

"It was one of those special nights", Sean Payton said.

The Saints held Washington to 283 total yards and allowed only 4 third down conversions all night. The Saints sacked Smith 3 times and Marcus Davenport almost broke the poor man in half.

Prime Minister Maris Kucinskis' centrist Union of Greens and Farmers was expected to end up in second place. Polling stations are to close at 1900 UTC and final results are expected early on Sunday.

Instead, they came out flat.

The Saints defense is officially a monster against the run.

They couldn't run the ball on offense - just 39 yards on 18 carries all night. Still, Redskins fans were about as involved in the game as tight end Jordan Reed, who had one catch and was inexplicably targeted only twice against the 30th-ranked pass defense. Just wait until Saints start playing offensive lines that are bad or injured?

Alvin Kamara was practically invisible and the Saints COASTED to 43 points. All of this while watching Drew Brees pass Peyton Manning to become the National Football League all-time passing leader.

WR Ted Ginn Jr.

In 2012, Brees also set the National Football League record for consecutive games with a touchdown pass at 54.

The only downside to Monday was I didn't get to see it in person.

He wasn't penalized for it, but Drew Brees had an excessive celebration on the field last night. The 2018 Saints season is 5 weeks in and if it was a movie we'd say it's had a great opening.
