Brees becomes NFL's all-time passing leader

Photos: This NFL Cheerleader Is Going Viral Today

Here's what you can expect.

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. A home 31-17 win over Green Bay was impressive but tonight is a true test.

New Orleans defeated the Washington Redskins 43-19. They could have bounced back from the 38 yards lost on penalties, but allowed Ingram to establish a steady run game - and of course, Brees' record outing. "Sheesh that's a lot of passing yards!" Brees, who already holds the single-season record for completion rate at 72 percent last season, finished the game a remarkable 26 of 29 for 363 yards, no interceptions and three touchdowns - two of them going to Smith, a third-round draft choice out of Central Florida has played just five National Football League games and is now immortalized because of his role in Brees' record-breaking pass. In Week Three, Brees became the NFL's all-time completion leader (6,344). The crowd will be rapturous if their QB achieves either of these feats.

It's hard to imagine or remember a worse loss in the coach Jay Gruden era; not just by margin of victory, but for the team's utter incompetence. Then, on the same drive, Quinton Dunbar was called for defensive holding in the end zone - and Brees hit tight end Josh Hill for a one-yard touchdown instead of the Saints settling for the field goal. Brees and the Saints play against the Washington Redskins Monday night in primetime in the Superdome and Brees is anticipated to break the record during the game. Check out a running list of the highlights from the game. Middle linebacker pairing of Mason Foster and Zach Brown will have their hands full.

Quarterback Alex Smith struggled against the Saints' defense. In the 2017 campaign, he notched 53 receptions on 70 targets for 787 receiving yards and four touchdowns in 15 games played. Can he keep up with the New Orleans attack?

The 33-year-old Peterson had four rushes for six yards in the game and added two catches for 36 yards.

The Saints have too many weapons to handle.

They couldn't run the ball on offense - just 39 yards on 18 carries all night.

Brees hugged coach Sean Payton and his family on the sidelines, handed the football used on the play to a representative of the American Football Hall of Fame and then went back into the game for a two-point conversion attempt that failed.
