In the fourth, the Saints got within 8 before Washington mounted yet another long touchdown drive, extending the lead to 31-16.

The Redskins have suffered a number of injuries this season, but Thompson's could arguably be the biggest because of his productivity and the fact that he'll be hard to replace.

Washington Redskins running back Chris Thompson was carted off the field in the third quarter of Sunday afternoon's game against the New Orleans Saints. New Orleans proved that good to great teams never believe they are out of games. And the defense crushed the ensuing Redskins drive to send the game to overtime.

The Saints picked up four first downs in eight plays, marching 75 yards down the field for a touchdown.

Hulu working on live-action Hitman series
Kolstad will serve as an executive producer for the Hitman show which Fox 21 hopes to be a new "flagship" series for the company. Director Xavier Gens released Hitman in 2007 to negative reviews, though the film did gross $99 million on a $24 million budget.

It was the first time in Saints history that they had ever come back from a 14-point deficit in the fourth quarter, according to the Elias Sports Bureau. Still, even after a two-point conversion tied the game, the Redskins drove to New Orleans' 34-yard line where an intentional grounding not only cost Washington 10 yards but also precious time as 10 seconds were run off the clock. The Redskins punted with an eight-point lead and held their collective breaths.

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 gave up two wide-open TD passes in the second half and a 26-yard pass on a gutsy fourth-and-6 call by the Redskins in the second quarter, among other miscues. They faced only one third down and tight end Coby Fleener caught passes of 24 and 25 yards. They scored two touchdowns after Thompson left, with quarterback Kirk Cousins leading the way.

If Washington wants to emerge victorious in Week 11, they are going to have to have some big performances on both sides of the ball.
