Record-setting night for Brees; embarrassing loss for Redskins 43-19

"Just so grateful for the opportunity to play this game and to have played it so long and to have the teammates that I have, and the New Orleans Saints organization, and this great city and this great fan base".

The Redskins are scheduled to visit Philadelphia on Monday night in Week 13. There were probably quite a few fantasy football owners who were shocked to see the Saints put up 43 points and Kamara was hardly responsible for any of them.

Brees entered the game needing 201 yards through the air to set the mark and accomplished the feat in the second quarter when he flung a pass down the sideline for a 62-yardtouchdown to Tre'Quan Smith. If he does, however, expect the fanfare to continue throughout the night in New Orleans.

"I made that boy check out after the first half", the 25-year-old wideout tweeted, later posting a clip of himself getting the better of Norman.

They've only played three games, but Washington's defense now ranks first in yards allowed per game (278.0), passing yards allowed per game (187.3) and points allowed per game (14.7). Then, on the same drive, Quinton Dunbar was called for defensive holding in the end zone - and Brees hit tight end Josh Hill for a one-yard touchdown instead of the Saints settling for the field goal.

However, the Saints will be without one of their big-play threat wide receivers with Ted Ginn Jr. being ruled out Monday's game due to a knee injury, according to Mike Triplett of ESPN.

With all that being said, the Redskins still lead the NFC East at 2-2 and have the 3-1 Carolina Panthers coming to town on Sunday. "I'll be able to reflect on it maybe a little bit more when my career is done".

The 39-year-old passer, in his 18th National Football League campaign, needed 201 yards coming into the feature contest and reached 228 yards with a touchdown throw to Tre'Quan Smith down the right sideline as cheering supporters roared in the Superdome. "I don't have time to keep doing these videos for you".

Of course, the record shouldn't distract the Saints from the task at hand. "He's in charge. I respect the head man in charge".
