Saints outpace Redskins on MNF

Saints outpace Redskins on MNF”

Brees sits exactly 200 yards away from matching Peyton Manning's mark for career passing yards of 71,940. Brees will face a Washington team in Week 5 that ranks third in the National Football League with just 187 yards allowed through the air per game, and is coming off a Week 4 bye. Washington scored its first second-half touchdown of the season early in the fourth quarter, but the efforts were too little too late. He had 250 yards and two touchdowns by halftime and finished 26 of 29 for 363 yards and three touchdowns.

Josh Norman's defensive holding penalty during Brees' incomplete pass on third-and-4 from the New Orleans 42 helped the Saints on their first scoring drive, capped by Mark Ingram's short touchdown run. Smith went 12-of-20 for 220 yards, two touchdowns and one interception in the win. Once again, all eyes will be on No. 9 come Monday Night.

Brees appeared in just one regular-season game during his rookie season, but took over the starting role as a sophomore in 2002.

The person on the receiving end of the most passes from Brees is Marques Colston, who played his college ball at Hofstra, which no longer has a football program. And it says a lot about the teams I've been on, the coaches, the teammates, the players.

Redskins: Chris Thompson took a heavy hit from Saints linebacker Craig Robertson and received treatment on the field before getting up and walking to the sideline holding his helmet.
