Redskins safety D.J. Swearinger is tired of the two-minute breakdowns. "That's been killing us all year," he said. "If it ain't broke don't fix it; if it's broke, fix it. Period. Period.”

John Keim ESPN Staff Writer 

Redskins safety D.J. Swearinger said, "Fans were leaving the game, man. Anytime fans are leaving you've got to win the game. I don't care what happened. You've got to find a way to win. Period.”

Cousins thrived against the blitz

Kirk Cousins had been fine against extra rushers through nine games this season, but he absolutely torched the Saints' blitzes Sunday. That said, New Orleans' two blitzes in overtime resulted in an incompletion and a sack.

Brian Burke ESPN Analytics 

According to our win probability model, the Saints had just a 0.2% chance of winning at their lowest point. That was at 1st and 10 at their own 45 with 4:42 in the 4th quarter. The Saints' win was the biggest comeback since last season's Super Bowl.

Saints extend win streak to 8, roar back, 34-31 in OT

D.J. Swearinger on Chris Thompson: "That bothers me the most. One of your best guys goes down and we don't get the W for him. That's tough."

Redskins linebacker Junior Galette said "we beat ourselves today." He called Drew Brees a "Hall of Famer" but the Redskins made too many self-inflicted wounds.

Redskins running back Chris Thompson just left the locker room and was carted away. He clearly looked as you would expect: very dejected.

Jay Gruden said of the loss: "It stings. It stings a lot of people. We'll have to bounce back in a short week."

Redskins coach Chris Thompson suffered a broken fibula in his third quarter injury. It's a devastating injury for Thompson and the Redskins. He'll be tough to replace.

Matt Bowen ESPN Staff Writer 

The Saints RBs continue to produce high-level numbers. Mark Ingram racked up 155 total yards and a TD while Alvin Kamara produced 117 total yards and a score.

This will haunt Washington for a long time. One of the best games the Redskins had played in a while ends in will be one of their most crushing losses. The defense allowed two touchdowns late and the offense failed to pick up a key third-and-1 late in regulation that could have all but iced the win. The Redskins will struggle to recover from this one.

Seth Walder ESPN Analytics 

With about six minutes left in regulation, the Redskins had a 99.7% chance of winning today. They lost.

Running back Samaje Perine continues to show that he's learned to be more patient and that he gets better with more carries. That's what the Redskins hoped would happen. He's in his best groove of the season -- by far.

The Redskins signed Byron Marshall earlier in the week. He offers receiving and running skills, but he's new to the offense and perhaps the hardest area to replace would be Chris Thompson's blitz pick-ups.

John Keim ESPN Staff Writer 

Running back Chris Thompson was helped off the field and loaded onto the cart as teammates all gathered around him. An air cast was placed on his right leg. His loss is a disaster for Washington.
