The Saints put up a great fight, but simply couldn't figure out the Redskins offense or Robert Griffin, III. The rookie quarterback threw for 320 yards and two touchdowns in his regular season debut for the Redskins.

Brees did as much as he could with his teammates failing to do him any favors in the passing game. The Redskins secondary held up over the course of the game despite entering the season with low expectations, cashing in on a big interception in the fourth quarter.

New Orleans doesn't look right without Sean Payton, while the Redskins, and Griffin, look right at home in the winner's circle.
