LANDOVER, Md. (AP) - Jameis Winston connected on a Hail Mary for one of his four touchdown passes to help the New Orleans Saints beat Washington 33-22.

It was a bounce-back victory that came at a cost of two more injuries.

Winston took every snap at quarterback for the first time this season.

That was a necessity after Taysom Hill suffered a concussion while trying to catch a pass in the second quarter.

Winston completed a 72-yard touchdown pass to Deonte Harris and connected with Marquez Callaway on the 49-yard Hail Mary TD on the final play of the first half.

Washington’s Antonio Gibson rushed for two touchdowns.
