5 bold predictions for Redskins in Week 11 clash with the Saints

But after losing 34-31 in overtime in the Big Easy - which also could be the nickname of the Saints' last two scoring drives in regulation - the Redskins' playoff hopes are on life support. Kamara was the man on the tying two-point conversion, taking a flip from Brees around left end into the end zone.

Drew Brees and the ascendent New Orleans Saints were having a decidedly "meh" game for most of the day against Washington.

The Saints defense stopped Washington again, this time with safety Vonn Bell drilling Kirk Cousins for a sack as time expired. He finished the game 22-of-32 for 322 yards and three touchdowns. Coach Jay Gruden announced after the game he suffered a fibula fracture and will require surgery.

The Redskins pulled off a huge gamble in the third quarter and converted it into a touchdown for a 24-13 lead.

Cousins also had a 16-yard touchdown pass to running back Chris Thompson in the first half. The back added 3 catches for 21 yards on Sunday.

In lengthy remarks to the press Thursday, Tweeden said that she felt "violated" by Franken when he allegedly forcibly kissed her. Franken first issued an apology to Tweeden, in which he said that the photo "was clearly meant to be amusing but wasn't.

Cousins got the touchdown by standing tall against the blitz and throwing a 40-yard strike to Grant, who was 20 yards behind the Saints' secondary on a blown coverage.

New Orleans responded on their next possession with a 52-yard Wil Lutz field goal to tie it at 3. They're 4-6 in a conference where it could take 10 wins to make the postseason.

Former first-round draft pick Josh Doctson has had his ups and downs over the past year and a half, he now seems to be the developing into the player the Redskins envisioned. It appears that Saints defender Sheldon Rankins rolled on Thompson's knee.

It hasn't helped that they lost cornerback Marshon Lattimore to an ankle injury on the opening drive.

Teammates and trainers surrounded Thompson before an air cast was placed on his leg. He escaped serious injury on the play.
