Campbell, Thomas overwhelming Saints' D
By Dan Graziano
I know that the Saints are missing four starters on defense, but it's still remarkable that the Skins are shredding their former defensive coordinator, Gregg Williams. Redskins quarterback Jason Campbell is 20-of-30 for 254 yards and three touchdowns. And second-year receiver Devin Thomas has taken over the game with six catches for 102 yards and two touchdowns.
After heart-wrenching losses to the Cowboys and Eagles, you half-expected a letdown from the Redskins. Instead, they're playing their best game of the season. And they stuffed the Saints on fourth down around the goal line early in the third quarter. Sean Payton might regret not taking the points. The Saints just made it 27-20 early in the fourth quarter.
I'll monitor the rest of the fourth quarter for you guys. The Eagles are safely ahead, 27-0, in the Georgia Dome and Michael Vick scored a touchdown and just completed a long pass to Reggie Brown.
