Instant analysis of Redskins heartbreaking 34-31 loss to Saints

What happened next left the Redskins on shaky ground.

Washington had a 15-point lead in the fourth quarter, but came out on the wrong side of the game, falling to the New Orleans Saints 34-31 in overtime. Tight end Vernon Davis says the Redskins need to maintain a good attitude and play together.

The defense held New Orleans to a field goal there and the score was 24-16 Redskins. It's fair and simple. Losing their most dynamic offensive player won't help.

New York's winning drive was set up thanks to a 36-yard reception by receiver Roger Lewis, who also drew a pass interference penalty on Chiefs cornerback Phillip Gaines before Rosas' game-winning field goal.

The Redskins began their second possession of the period backed up on the four-yard line, but the drive ended much better than it began.

Through three quarters, Brees was completing 62 percent of his passes with one interception and a 67.3 quarterback rating. Payton said the Saints' execution under pressure in the final six minutes reminded him of some of the victories in New Orleans' Super Bowl winning season.

With stout defense and a resurgent Drew Brees, the Saints completed the comeback in overtime, securing their eighth straight win of the season. The Redskins had converted 44 percent of their third downs.

Despite the pretty good play of Washington's defense in that first 30 minutes, Brees still recorded 154 yards on 12 completions (of 22 attempts); and Mark Ingram, Jr. racked up 65 yards on six carries.

Rams running back Todd Gurley had five carries for 20 yards and a touchdown on the first possession of the game, but was held to 17 yards on 10 carries the rest of the way.

"That's what great quarterbacks do", Swearinger said. He did it again on the next play to get the first down. It wasn't like he was dicing us up.

Washington's offense couldn't get a first down, even as it faced a 3rd-and-1 situation.

Saints kicker Will Lutz made a 28-yard field goal on the ensuing play to complete the unlikely comeback for New Orleans, and the terrible collapse for the Redskins. The Redskins suffered a season-ending injury to RB Chris Thompson (broken lower right leg), and they also lost S Montae Nicholson (concussion protocol) and LG Shawn Lauvao (stinger).

Now Washington has a tough road for postseason positioning.

With the number of mistakes the Saints made, it must be said: They were fortunate to win here.

But in the end, they came up with a huge third-and-1 run stuff when the Redskins nearly ran out the clock near the end of regulation; then they forced an intentional grounding penalty and a sack in the final minute of regulation to knock the Redskins out of field-goal range; then they forced a three-and-out when Washington got the ball first in overtime.

Fans were heading for the exits as the Redskins took a 15-point lead with 5:58 remaining after quarterback Kirk Cousins delivered a handsome, six-play, 75-yard drive that ended on a seven-yard touchdown pass to rookie tight end Jeremy Sprinkle.
