LIVE Patriots Talk with Game Updates: Patriots vs. Redskins

Sarah Weisberg

Kickoff this afternoon at FedEx Field in Landover Maryland, the Week 5 game between the New England Patriots and the Washington Redskins should be an exciting match-up. The Patriots are coming into the game at the top of the AFC East (4-0), the Redskins at a grim 0-4.

So far this season, New England's defense has been strong during their first four games, momentum that will hopefully continue today. AFC Defensive Player of the Month Devin McCourty is leading the defensive line, having had an interception each game thus far this season. 

A better performance from the Patriots' offensive line today would be a welcome change after last week. Marshall Newhouse is back in full health, and with some luck, rhythm will return. Wide Receiver Julian Edelman will be on the field today despite still dealing with his chest/rib injury. 

Washington will start veteran quarterback Colt McCoy, who has a fair amount of pressure on his shoulders this week. With talk of rookie Dwayne Haskins gunning for another shot to play, McCoy's game will need to step up considerably today against the Patriots.

Can they not run the ball at all? I know the O-line is banged up but they arent even trying

I thought Hightower was going to Murder Colt McCoy there

How many screen passes will they run before they realize it isn't working? That's 3 so far by my count.

The Redskins' undrafted rookie making the Patriots defenders look bad on that 64 yard TD.

Sony Michel with his first catch on the year. They talked all offseason about getting him involved in the passing game. He now has one reception on two targets.

Winovich has four sacks on the season now. As a young guy on a team that gets sacks from all around, that's great for the rookie.

Going to be interesting to see if Patriots try to get the run game going very early in this game. Without Burkhead/against a lackluster run defense = big day for Sony.
