Prior to the Redskins' Week 11 game, Thompson was their best offensive player on the field, showing off his dual-threat ability. Kamara would convert the two-point conversion, sending the game to overtime.

The two touchdown passes from Brees gave him 400 with the Saints as he became the fifth quarterback in National Football League history to pass for that many for a team. The Saints would eventually win 34-31 in overtime.

Saints: Lattimore tried to return for the first defensive series of the second half, but came off the field soon after and went to the locker room. His first TD went to tight end Josh Hill with 2:53 to go and the last to Alvin Kamara with 1:05 left.

Washington couldn't move the ball into field goal range, punting the ball back to New Orleans. Cousins final touchdown pass, a 7-yard touchdown to Jeremy Sprinkle.

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.

The Redskins gained 456 yards - their second most this season - against a Saints defense that had not allowed more 347 yards in any game during New Orleans' winning streak. That was to be the highlight of the quarter. The Saints called an all-out blitz, it didn't work, Washington led at that point 24-13. The drive that followed was capped by a 40-yard Cousins TD pass to Ryan Grant, who was all alone behind the coverage.

With the Saints down 31-23 to the Washington Redskins late in the fourth, Kamara made a juggling catch and slipped his way through multiple defenders for a score. After nine games, he had 60 carries for 277 yards and two touchdowns, as well as 38 receptions for 494 yards and three touchdowns.
