Saints and Colts look to remain undefeated
The New Orleans Saints and Indianapolis Colts remain undefeated going into the latest round of action in the 2009 NFL season and both look certain to emerge from this weekend's match-ups with their perfect records intact.
The Saints are coming off Monday night's 38 points to 17 victory over the unforgiving New England Patriots and must now travel to face a Washington Redskins side that has only managed three wins so far this season.
ExtraBet.com is offering a New Orleans victory at odds of 1/6 while SkyBet.com and Betfair.com list 9/50.
