You never know what you're going to get from 4-5 New Orleans, who had a 3-game winning streak snapped by Tennessee. They'll travel to face 3-5 Washington, who actually held their own against Patriots.

Opening Odds & Line Movement
Open: PK -105 at Pinnacle
Fittingly, the NFL odds here opened as a PK before it moved to -1 for the Saints, who have allowed the second-most yards in the league. However, the Saints' poor defense has allowed Drew Brees to show that he isn't finished just yet, and he is second in the league to San Diego's Philip Rivers in yards and seventh in QBR. The Redskins were never going to win in New England, but they just barely failed to cover and that should be promising as many expected them to get blown out. However, Kirk Cousins has nine picks and if you're going to only throw 10 touchdowns, that isn't good enough. Washington is 28th in the league in points scored and if this turns into a shootout, they're in big trouble.

Injuries
For the Saints, QB Luke McCown is out for the season with a back injury, which means either Matt Flynn or Garrett Grayson will back up Brees. They won't play unless something terrible happens to Brees, and Saints' fans will have their fingers crossed because if it does, there goes their season.

G Kory Lichtensteiger is out for the season with a pinched nerve in his neck, but NT Terrance Knighton might be back after a head injury. Elsewhere for Washington, LB Keenan Robinson did some work by himself in practice after suffering a shoulder injury, while DE Jason Hatcher is resting a sore knee, but he should be ready to go on Sunday for the Redskins.

 

Trends
New Orleans is 4-4-1 ATS so far this season, and they're a solid 2-2 ATS on the road. The Redskins are 3-5 ATS in 2015, but they're 2-2 ATS at home, which is decent enough. The total is set at 50.5 right now, down from an opening 51, and the Saints have gone over five times, along with a push. Washington has gone under the total five times this season and to win, they'll probably need to do it again.

The Saints are 4-6 SU and 3-7 ATS in 10 meetings with the Redskins since 1990, and in Washington, the Saints are 3-4 SU and 3-3 ATS.
