Washington inactives: WR Dyami Brown, WR Cam Sims, CB Danny Johnson, DE Shaka Toney, G Brandon Scherff and TE Jace Sternberger. This means Sammis Reyes is active for the first time and becomes the first Chilean to play in an NFL game. Washington also signed WR Antonio Gandy-Golden off the practice squad; he's active today as well.

What to watch on defense: 1) Details. Washington's coaches feel they're close to being much better. The problem: The little details -- being where you should and when -- keep being an issue. 2) Alvin Kamara. The Saints will run him often and test Washington's linebackers. 3) The deep ball. Jameis Winston is inconsistent (and holds the ball -- hello, DL), but he does have a big arm and will go deep off play-action. The DBs must stick to their coverage.

What to watch on offense: 1) Curtis Samuel's snap count. He played 22 snaps last week, but the most he did in practice was being limited on Friday. He adds great value, but how much will he play? DeAndre Carter will have a bigger role, too. 2) Saints DL Cam Jordan. He'll rush from either side and sometimes up, sometimes down. He's terrific. 3) Terry McLaurin vs. Marshon Lattimore. The former Ohio State teammates will match up; Lattimore has terrific feet in press coverage. McLaurin wins often.
