Game recap: New Orleans Saints 34, Washington Redskins 31 in OT

Game recap: New Orleans Saints 34, Washington Redskins 31 in OT

Grant made the catch with no one within 20 yards of him and danced into the end zone for the first two-score lead of the game with 1:37 to go in the third quarter. He hit Josh Hill for a 3-yard touchdown, and connected with Alvin Kamara on 18-yard touchdown, then they hooked up again on a 2-point conversion to tie the score at 31-31.

The Saints' Seventh Heaven just became Eighth Heaven.

The Saints defense appeared less dominant than in recent games, giving up some big plays - most glaring, blown coverage on two second-half Redskins touchdowns that helped seal the outcome. When the Redskins quarterback was brought down by Sheldon Rankins, the Saints defensive tackle fell into the back of Thompson's right leg. It was one of the best games of the National Football League season.

On fourth-and-one, though, from the 15, Washington faked the punt with a short snap to up back Niles Paul, a tight end who charged five yards for the first down to keep the drive alive.

When the Washington Redskins scored with 5:58 remaining in the fourth quarter on a touchdown pass to a wide-open Jeremy Sprinkle, it gave Washington a 31-16 lead.

Wil Lutz 28-yard field goal in overtime was the victor for the Saints. The Tennessee Volunteers product oozes athleticism, showing Sunday why he's a future cornerstone in the high-flying New Orleans Saints offense.

However, the team may have now lost the running back for the season after the injury he picked up this week against the Saints.
