Week 5 of the 2018 NFL season will feature a marquee Monday Night Football game on Monday, October 8, 2018 when the Washington Redskins take on the New Orleans Saints in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans, Louisiana.
The Redskins are led by head coach Jay Gruden, quarterback Alex Smith, and running back Adrian Peterson. Washington is coming off a Week 4 bye, and heads into the game with a 2-1 record.
The Saints are led by head coach Sean Payton, quarterback Drew Brees, and wide receiver Michael Thomas. New Orleans is coming in off a Week 4 win vs. the Giants, and heads into the game with a 3-1 record.
The Redskins are coming off a bye week and have looked solid in two wins, but the Saints offense is getting into a groove just as it returns Mark Ingram to its backfield. Of course, he’ll have to compete for carries with Alvin Kamara, who is putting together one of the best seasons for a running back in NFL history. Saints 45, Redskins 28.
Drew Brees and the Saints still look like a very real Super Bowl contender. Washington, on the other hand, has shown flashes, but is far too inconsistent to rely on. And I’m a battle between Brees and Alex Smith, there’s only one smart choice. Saints 38, Washington 21.
The Saints are an NFC powerhouse and they are about to enter a shootout with the Redskins. Drew Brees should be in for a special game against the Washington secondary. Michael Thomas should benefit as well. Saints 38, Redskins 20.
Alex Smith is the best quarterback in the NFC East? Who saw that coming? The Saints add Mark Ingram-back from a four-game suspension-to an explosive offense with Drew Brees, Michael Thomas and Alvin Kamara. How is that fair? Saints 34, Redskins 20.
Drew Brees and the Saints have gotten back on track, with three straight wins, since dropping their opener at home to the Buccaneers. The Saints will head into their Week 6 bye with another victory. Saints 42, Washington 14.
Mark Ingram’s return is huge for the Saints and Sean Payton staying balanced on offense. They’ll need to be on Monday vs. a game Redskins team. Expect a closer-than-anticipated game. Saints 30, Redskins 24.
Week 5 of the NFL slate concludes with Washington coming off of its bye to face New Orleans in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome. This games actually pits a pair of division leaders (entering Week 5), with the Redskins (2-1) benefitting from playing one less game than the rest of their NFC East compatriots, while the Saints (3-1) currently sit atop the NFC South having rattled off three straight wins.
Washington enters this game well rested. This will be the Redskins’ first game in 14 days. They are currently 2-0 against NFC team, with both wins (Packers, Cardinals) coming on the road. Their only loss thus far came in Week 2 at home to the Colts.
New Orleans is coming off of a 33-18 road win over the Giants. After allowing New York to score a touchdown on its first possession, the Saints’ defense clamped, as the Giants did not score again until two minutes remained in the third quarter. New Orleans moved the ball on offense, but had to settle for four field goals in the first half. The second half was a different story, as Alvin Kamara punctuated three dives by running it in for a touchdown.
Ingram’s four-game suspension ended the day after the Saints returned from New York. Comments from players and coaches indicate that he has remained in great shape. He may actually find himself at an advantage by not having endured any injuries and fatigue from four games as his teammates might have.
Ingram’s return should boost the Saints’ offense though Drew Brees and crew have fared quite successfully so far without Ingram. New Orleans is third in the NFL in scoring (34.3 ppg) and fourth in total offense (418.3 ypg). The Saints are averaging 25.3 first downs per game, second only to the Rams. Even more important, New Orleans has just four turnovers on the season, as Brees has not thrown an interception in 161 attempts.
Will head coach Sean Payton be able to plug Ingram back into the offense without disrupting its high level of efficacy? How will the backfield touches be distributed now that Kamara has his tag-team partner back?
Washington’s defense has contributed mightily to its success so far, holding opponents to just 14.7 points per game. The Redskins also are limiting teams to 278 yards per contest. If they can maintain those numbers, Washington has a strong chance of leaving the Superdome with a victory.
After a slow start, New Orleans has steadily improved. The opener was filled with defensive breakdowns, and then the Saints followed that up by winning two nail-biters. Last week, they pushed around the Giants after halftime. Is this team finally ready to put together a complete four quarters?
There’s additional incentive for New Orleans with this game. Drew Brees needs just 201 passing yards to surpass Peyton Manning as the NFL’s all-time leader. Considering that he has averaged 323.8 yards per game this season, that record seems sure to be broken. Sean Payton no doubt wants Brees to do so at home, in front of a national TV audience.
Viewers also should expect Mark Ingram to play like a fuming bull that has just been freed from his pen. Four weeks of frustrating idleness will lead to his trampling of Redskins defenders. Brees will get his record, but Ingram will be the star of the night.
