The New England Patriots visit the nation’s capital on Sunday to play the Washington Redskins at FedEx Field in Landover, Maryland. New England escaped with a hard fought 16-10 victory over Buffalo in its last outing. New England’s offense sputtered on Sunday, but the defense intercepted four passes, came up with big stops late in the game and special teams returned a punt for a touchdown. The Patriots offense factored very little in the overall outcome.
Washington fell to 0-4 on the season with a 24-3 loss to the New York Giants. Dwayne Haskins took over for Case Keenum but could not lead the Redskins to any touchdowns. The four straight losses to start the season have put coach Jay Gruden’s job in jeopardy. The Redskins managed just 176 yards of offense, threw four interceptions and converted just 2 of 11 third downs.
Tom Brady has thrown for 1,061 yards, seven touchdowns and one interception. The leading rusher for the Patriots is Sony Michel with 171 yards and two touchdowns. Julian Edelman leads all receivers with 226 yards and one touchdown. Jamie Collins Sr. is the leading tackler with 23.
Washington quarterback Case Keenum has thrown for 970 yards, seven touchdowns and four interceptions. The leading rusher for the Redskins is Adrian Peterson with 90 yards. Terry McLaurin leads all Redskins receivers with 257 yards and three touchdowns. Landon Collins leads the Redskins in tackles with 36.
