UP-DOWNS

JASON CAMPBELL [SIDE]

Redskins QB has career game, but result is the same

SHAUN SUISHAM [DOWN]

Picks a bad time to miss a chip shot

MIKE SELLERS [DOWN]

Picks a bad time to fumble

PLAYER OF THE GAME

ROBERT MEACHEM

The Saints’ third-year wide receiver caught eight passes for 142 yards and a touchdown, and he stole the ball from Kareem Moore and ran it 44 yards for another score.

PLAY OF THE GAME

Score: Washington 30, New Orleans 30

Quarter: Overtime, 13:47

Situation: Redskins’ ball, second-and-4, Washington 36

The play: After Jason Campbell hit Mike Sellers for a 3-yard completion, cornerback Chris McAlister upended Sellers and forced a fumble. The Saints recovered at the Washington 37, and it was just a matter of time before Garrett Hartley kicked the winning field goal.

UP NEXT

Washington Redskins (3-9) at Oakland Raiders (4-8)

When: Sunday, 4:05 p.m.

Where: Oakland (Calif.) Coliseum

TV/radio: Ch. 5, ESPN 980

Outlook: Just when it looked as if the Redskins finally had something to celebrate, they fell apart and lost to the unbeaten Saints 33-30 in overtime. Washington again outplayed a better opponent. This time, Shaun Suisham’s missed chip shot field goal that could have sewn up the game and Mike Sellers’ fumble in overtime proved to be the difference. Quarterback Jason Campbell picked the Saints apart, passing for a career-high 367 yards and three touchdowns. Oakland is struggling through another dismal season, but the Raiders are playing somewhat better since replacing quarterback JaMarcus Russell with Bruce Gradkowski two weeks ago. The Raiders stunned Cincinnati, lost decisively to Dallas and then defeated Pittsburgh 27-24 on Sunday.
