Brees' teammates ran toward their quarterback as he jogged behind the play, and a group of them formed a jumping, celebrating mass of black and gold next to the Saints' fleur-de-lis emblem on the 50-yard line. Quarterback Alex Smith's 23-yard strike to Paul Richardson set the Redskins up in the red zone, but a third-down sack led to a 37-yard field goal for kicker Dustin Hopkins.
Down 26-13 at the half, the Redskins tried to make adjustments in the third quarter.
"I leave everything up to the head coach", Norman said.
There has been no clarity as to what the severity is of the injury that Ginn Jr.is dealing with as he had played in each of the first four games where he made 12 catches on 22 targets for 135 receiving yards and two touchdowns. Defensive tackle Daron Payne got there first and safety Montae Nicholson cleaned up.
Drew Brees then went on to lead the Saints offense on a 15-play, game-clinching drive that bled the final 10:25 off of the clock. But Brees also would have to outpace New England's Tom Brady, who has 500 TD passes, the only active player with more than Brees in that category. The Redskins have allowed the fewest passing yards per game in the league this year at 187.3.

3 reasons why Unai Emery has Arsenal back on track
Whisper it quietly, but Arsenal have been impressing this season as the new era of Unai Emery gets into full swing. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scores his second. "It is a long season and it is early to speak about the top four".
He recorded a dismal quarterback rating of 69.9 and had an interception.
"We talked about some things at halftime", Gruden said, according to the Washington Post. His night didn't get any better after the 43-19 deficit as his jersey provided lockdown coverage during an attempted jersey swap.
The 39-year-old passer, in his 18th National Football League campaign, needed 201 yards coming into the feature contest and reached 228 yards with a touchdown throw to Tre'Quan Smith down the right sideline as cheering supporters roared in the Superdome. Trailing for all of the game, the Redskins also abandoned the running game. Adrian Peterson had just six yards on four carries before leaving with a shoulder injury.
The visiting Redskins (2-1) are coming off a bye week and have just watched their NFC East rivals - the Giants, Eagles, and Cowboys - all lose, giving them an opportunity to take hold of the division.
