(TSX / STATS) -- NEW ORLEANS -- Wil Lutz kicked a 28-yard field in overtime, climaxing a furious fourth-quarter rally from a 15-point deficit with 5:58 remaining, to lift the New Orleans Saints to their eighth consecutive victory, 34-31, over the Washington Redskins Sunday at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.

The Saints (8-2) trailed 31-16 when Kirk Cousins completed a 7-yard touchdown pass to tight end Jeremy Sprinkle.

But Drew Brees led back-to-back touchdown drives of 75 and 83 yards, throwing 3 yards to tight end Josh Hill and 18 yards to rookie running back Alvin Kamara for touchdowns to draw the Saints within 31-29 with 1:05 left.
