Wil Lutz kicked a 28-yard field in overtime, climaxing a furious fourth-quarter rally from a 15-point deficit with 5:58 remaining, to lift the New Orleans Saints to their eighth consecutive victory, 34-31, over the Washington Redskins Sunday at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.
The former TCU All-American has made several jaw-dropping plays over the past few weeks and against the Saints he was back at it.
From the point where they had a 98.9 percent chance of winning, the Redskins crashed. Since Adrian Peterson's departure for the Arizona Cardinals, the run game has significantly improved.
The Saints will now face one of the stiffest tests yet in this two-month run - a trip to Los Angeles to face the Rams next Sunday.
Ingram surpassed his high rushing mark set just one week ago.
Meanwhile for the Redskins, they will be without offensive stars Terrelle Pryor and Jordan Reed, as well as center Spencer Long.
Home Form Vital For Arsenal, Says Wenger
Comparisons with the two marquee summer arrivals at Old Trafford and Stamford Bridge were inevitable and will probably persist all season long.
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.
Even after Thompson left, the Redskins were in good position. The Saints had 535 yards of offense while the Redskins had 456 yards.
Kamara also passed the 1,000-yard mark in total yards for his rookie season. To make things more interesting, the Saints will have the pleasure of going against Josh Norman, who used to be a huge foe from the Carolina Panthers.
Quarterback Kirk Cousins also went down on the play but stayed in the game. It should be a very intense battle between two Big Ten legends, as the Purdue Boilermaker (Brees) tries to outduel the Michigan State Spartan (Cousins). Coach Jay Gruden announced after the game he suffered a fibula fracture and will require surgery.
The Saints defense then rose to the occasion, forcing a Washington three-and-out.
