A few minutes later he connected with Smith on a 35-yard touchdown and when all-everything Taysom Hill scored on a 1-yard run to the right side the rout was on.

Meanwhile, the Redskins are coming off a bye week that should leave them well-rested. The Redskins dropped to 2-2.

The Saints enter the Monday Night Football matchup with a 3-1 record.


"I just play because I love the game and I love to compete and I love being part of this organisation".

Brees now sits at 499 career touchdowns, one away from the illustrious 500 mark that he'll surely surpass in weeks to come. It was running back Mark Ingram's first game after serving a four-game suspension and he powered his way to two first-half touchdowns and had a Pierre Thomas-esque screen pass go for 27 yards. This a game that has several different storylines to pay attention to.

Should Brees break the record - and statistically speaking it's likely he will, as Brees has thrown for at least 200 yards in 92 percent of his home games as a Saint - the league and the Saints will reportedly stop the game if it comes at an appropriate time, according to ESPN's Mike Triplett. Next season he's likely to become the record-holder in attempts (Brett Favre has 10,169) and touchdowns (Manning has 539). The 'Skins will be looking to set the pace henceforth, and Monday's contest will be their first, and also most hard, chance to do so. But Brees has slung the football around with the best of them. He had 250 yards and two touchdowns by halftime and finished 26 of 29 for 363 yards and three touchdowns.
