Redskins...29 Saints...24

September 15, 2008|From the Associated Press

LANDOVER, Md. -- "Avoid, reset and throw." Jason Campbell did just that, then connected with Santana Moss for a 67-yard touchdown pass play that won the game.

Campbell and new Washington Redskins Coach Jim Zorn's West Coast offense succeeded in Week 2 as spectacularly as it failed in Week 1. Campbell went from uncomfortable to prolific, completing 24 of 36 passes for 321 yards in a 29-24 win over New Orleans.

The big play came with 3:29 left and the Redskins (1-1) trailing 24-22. Campbell avoided the rush, stepped forward and hit Moss in stride. Reggie Bush returned a punt 55 yards for a touchdown that gave the Saints (1-1) a 24-15 lead at the end of the third quarter.

Quoteworthy: "I don't really know how to act, but I am very excited." -- Jim Zorn, Redskins coach, on his first NFL win
