New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees only needs 201 passing yards more to eclipse Peyton Manning’s all-time record for most career passing yards and he could do that next week against the Washington Redskins. However, the Redskins’ defense can be pretty stingy plus they’re going to be motivated as they don’t want Brees to break the record at their own expense.

Betting on the Washington Redskins (2-1)
The Redskins will be fresh off a long rest when they take on the Saints in a Monday Night Football game next week. Before they went through their bye, the Redskins eked out a feel-good 31-17 home win over the Green Bay Packers. As with any team winning against an Aaron Rodgers-led team, the Redskins’ defense deserves some praises in the victory. The Redskins’ pass rush, in particular, was very effective, sacking Rodgers four times for a loss of 25 yards. Washington’s pass rush will have to come out with the same intensity against New Orleans if they are to slow down quarterback Drew Brees. On offense, the Redskins should be able to inflict damage on New Orleans’ susceptible defense that is allowing the third-most passing yards per game in the league.
The under is 3-0 in the Redskins’ last three road games.
Betting on the New Orleans Saints (3-1)
The Saints’ third-ranked scoring defense is about to get a weapon back with Mark Ingram set to return after serving a four-game suspension. Ingram isn’t just a middling player on the Saints’ roster. Last year, he led New Orleans in rushing yards with 1,124 to go with 12 rushing touchdowns. With Ingram back, he and running back Alvin Kamara are going to be huge headaches for the Redskins. Washington is allowing just 14.7 points per game and 90.7 rushing yards per contest, but the Redskins haven’t met a team yet this season with a backfield as talented as that of the Saints. In New Orleans’ 33-18 win over the New York Giants last Sunday, the Saints were carried by Kamara, who scored all of his three rushing touchdowns in the second half. He finished with 134 rushing yards on 19 carries.
The Saints are 9-1 SU in their last 10 home games
New Orleans, 26-23.
