Chris Thompson Carted off Field vs. Saints Due to Leg Injury

Associated Press

Washington Redskins running back Chris Thompson could be out for some time after picking up a rather nasty injury during his team's game against the New Orleans Saints.

The defense held again, forcing a Redskins punt, and the Saints drove down the field to set up the winning field goal.

The injury obviously is devastating for Thompson, but also is a tough blow for the Redskins, as Thompson has been their most dynamic player throughout the 2017-18 season. The Saints had 535 yards of offense while the Redskins had 456 yards.

The good news is Cousins, who took a big shot to the head on the play in question, was able to come back and throw a touchdown pass to extend the Redskins' lead to 24-13 (at the time).

The Saints, who have won eight straight after an 0-2 start, bounced back from the early interception for a 3-3 tie as Lutz nailed a 52-yard field goal with 5:30 to play in the opening quarter following a 48-yard drive in 11 plays. After nine games, he had 60 carries for 277 yards and two touchdowns, as well as 38 receptions for 494 yards and three touchdowns.

The New Orleans Saints looked toast down 15 late in the fourth quarter, but Drew Brees orchestrated two touchdown drives in the final minutes to lead the team back against Washington and get a 34-31 win in overtime. It was one of the best games of the National Football League season. The Saints called an all-out blitz, it didn't work, Washington led at that point 24-13.
