Game Info: Washington Redskins (2-1) at New Orleans Saints (3-1) - Mercedes-Benz Superdome - New Orleans, LA - 8:15 p.m. EST.
Odds: The FanDuel Sportsbook has the Saints as -6.5-point favorites at the open, since dropping to -6, and they are also favored -260 on the moneyline to win outright. The Redskins' moneyline comes in at +220.
When Saints host Redskins tonight, Drew Brees needs 201 passing yards to break Peyton Manning’s all-time yards record of 71,940. Since joining Saints in 2006, Brees has started 98 homes and thrown for at least 201 yards in 90. Plus, Saints want him to break this record at home.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) October 8, 2018
* Saints quarterback Drew Brees needs only 201 passing yards to unseat Peyton Manning as the NFL's all-time leader in that category.
* The Redskins have been resting since Sept. 23 after they defeated Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers in Week 3 -- that's a total of 14 full days off to prepare for Brees and the Saints. It's also worth noting that the Redskins defense leads the NFL in total yards allowed (278.0) per game.
Best Prop Bets:
* Jamison Crowder - Over 55.5 Receiving Yards (-102) - We highlighted Crowder in our exploitable matchups article
* Mark Ingram - First Touchdown of the Game (+900) - The Saints would love to get Ingram back into the swing of things after a four-game suspension, and a trip to end zone could actually put this guy in a good mood for once. It seems like the Saints are in a goal-to-go situation multiple times each week, so the opportunity could certainly be there.
