Sky Sports | Updated: 2018-10-08 21:00:43

Week Five in the NFL wraps up with a Monday Night Football match-up between the Washington Redskins and the free-scoring New Orleans Saints, exclusively live on Sky Sports Action and Main Event from 1am. Here's what you can expect...

Form guide

The visiting Redskins (2-1) are coming off a bye week and have just watched their NFC East rivals - the Giants, Eagles, and Cowboys - all lose, giving them an opportunity to take hold of the division. Like many teams, it's hard to gauge Washington's quality at the moment: they dominated the Cardinals, who have just one win in five, but were also beaten by the 1-4 Colts. A home 31-17 win over Green Bay was impressive but tonight is a true test.

New Orleans (3-1) have, in typical fashion, provided their fans with a ton of points and a lot of drama. After an opening day 48-40 defeat to Tampa Bay, they bounced back with a victory over the Browns. That week Cleveland missed an extra point and New Orleans drove down the field to win it at the death, and they did the same in a 43-37 Week Three win with a Drew Brees game-winning TD. Last week, a comfortable victory over the Giants made it three in a row.

Stat Attack

Saints quarterback Drew Brees is likely to make history in this game. With 201 passing yards, he will become the NFL's all-time passing leader. Brees is on 71,740, just behind Brett Favre (71,838) and Peyton Manning (71,940). In Week Three, Brees became the NFL's all-time completion leader (6,344).

If that wasn't enough for one night, Brees could also join Manning, Favre, and Tom Brady in the 500 passing touchdowns club with four scores through the air. The crowd will be rapturous if their QB achieves either of these feats.
