LANDOVER, Md. (AP) - Kirk Cousins threw for a career-high four touchdowns - each one longer than any scoring pass he'd completed all season - to lead the Washington Redskins past the New Orleans Saints 47-14 on Sunday.
    
Cousins went 20 for 25 for 324 yards, zero interceptions and a perfect passer rating of 158.3, connecting for TDs of 78 yards to Matt Jones, 16 and 8 yards to Jordan Reed, and 11 yards to Jamison Crowder.
    
Cousins didn't have a touchdown toss of more than 7 yards until he got to go up against the Saints' porous and poor-tackling defense.
    
The 33-point margin of victory for the Redskins (4-5) was the team's largest since beating San Francisco by 35, 52-17, in October 2005.
    
The Saints (4-6) lost their second game in a row, following a run of three victories that briefly got them to .500.

    It's only one of 82 games, so not time to freak out yet, but the Pelicans looked unimpressive in their 103-91 loss to the Grizzlies. The Pelicans were without the services of Rajon Rondo with a sports hernia injury, and they could of used him. The Pels bench only contributed eight points on the evening. By comparison the Grizzlies bench dropped in 53 points. Boogie Cousins and Anthony Davis combined for 61 points. The rest of the starters for New Orleans, only put up 22 points. ...more>>
