The victory extended the team's winning streak to eight games, their longest since winning eight straight to end the 2011 season, and kept them in first place in the NFC South at 8-2.

But Drew Brees also had his finest moment of the year, completing 11-of-11 passes for 164 yards and two touchdowns on the Saints' two quick touchdown drives at the end of regulation. They then picked up the two-point conversion as Alvin Kamara walked into the end zone untouched.

The New Orleans Saints defeated the Washington Redskins in a thrilling overtime game 34-31. Brees was held to under 200 yards passing for the second time this season and didn't throw a single touchdown.

Thompson was injured while blocking as Cousins ran in his direction. They faced only one third down and tight end Coby Fleener caught passes of 24 and 25 yards.

Thompson entered the game leading Washington in both rushing (277 yards) and receiving (494) and also had scored four touchdowns.

The Redskins pulled off a huge gamble in the third quarter and converted it into a touchdown for a 24-13 lead. The Redskins quickly took advantage of the turnover, converting a 38-yard field goal for a 3-0 lead.

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. Wil Lutz's field goal won it for the black and gold. They're 4-6 in a conference where it could take 10 wins to make the postseason. Brees was intercepted by Redskins safety D.J.

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

Adding injury to insult, Chris Thompson - the team leader in receiving yards and total touchdowns - was carted off the field with an ugly leg injury and did not return.
