LANDOVER, MD – NOVEMBER 15: Quarterback Kirk Cousins
LANDOVER, MD – NOVEMBER 15: Quarterback Kirk Cousins /

This week the Black and Gold head back home to face the Washington Redskins. The Saints come in RED HOT riding a three game winning streak. In my opinion, the Redskins overachieved last year with the 8-7-1 record. Meanwhile, the front office did have a ton of draft picks at their disposal. Here are all of nine of them including two players from Alabama: DT Jonathen Allen and LB Ryan Anderson. The Skins have a bright future.

This game is where CB Marshon Lattimore comes ALIVE! Lattimore grabs two interceptions and sacks Kirk Cousins on a corner blitz. The defense from top to bottom is becoming a dominant force to be reckoned with. The Saints force five turnovers and throw Cousins around like a RAG DOLL.

The Redskins only find the red zone a couple of time the whole game. Even so, the defense stiffens and allows just a field goal in four intense quarters of smash mouth defense. The Saints look like a new team on the defensive side of the ball.

Final: Saints 19 Redskins 3
