New Orleans Saints vs. Washington Redskins series history
The New Orleans Saints and Washington Redskins first met in 1967. In both the inaugural season of the Saints and the 1969 campaign, the two clubs played against each other twice a season in the NFL's Capitol division, prior to the formation of two conferences and then the NFC West in 1970. New Orleans has posted a 9-17 record against the Redskins.
It is a series defined by tight, hard-fought games with the Saints capturing the 2017 meeting, coming back from a 31-15 fourth quarter deficit to score 19 unanswered points and prevail in overtime, 34-31, when quarterback Drew Brees completed 11-of-11 passes for 164 yards with touchdown passes to tight end Josh Hill and running back Alvin Kamara.
Ten of the 26 games between the Saints and Redskins have been decided by seven points or less, five by a field goal or less. The Saints have a 4-9 home record against Washington after last year's win.
