Washington Redskins Game 8: New England Patriots – Five Takeaways

The Washington Redskins flew up to Foxborough and put together a performance against the defending Super Bowl Champion New England Patriots that has left me shaking my head.skins

In truth, the Redskins missed an opportunity to continue the momentum they built with their thrilling victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers prior to their Week 8 bye. The Patriots were playing down the Redskins level and Washington couldn’t even match the intensity and had far too much trouble executing. It makes one wonder what on earth were they up to over the long weekend?

Washington Redskins Week 9 Preview: at New England Patriots

The Washington Redskins are coming off a nice long bye week to their toughest road test of the season: the mighty Super Bowl Champion New England Patriots. The Redskins hope to build off of the miracle 31-30 comeback win vs. Tampa Bay two weeks ago, and will be healthier than they have been for most of the season. However, they are running into the juggernaut that is Bill Belichick and the Patriots.

Not much needs to be said about the Patriots that has not been repeated ad nauseam. New England is a dynasty, with four Super Bowl Rings in six appearances in the past 15 seasons.

Washington Redskins Training Camp Report: Patriots Practice

The Redskins hosted the New England Patriots for the first time before they take the field Thursday night in the teams pre-season opener. First year head coach Jay Gruden stressed using the opportunity to practice against a quality opponent as a learning experience. The Redskins have become familiar with each other, to an extent the offense knows what to expect and the defenses’ “tendencies” and vice-versa. When you bring in 90 new players and coaches it forces players to read and react in more of a game-like situation which is telling for the coaches of both staffs’.

A few players shined against the new competition in Richmond. Bacarri Rambo had a few solid plays in coverage, however, that was never the concern with Rambo, his tackling is what will need to improve greatly in 2014 if he wishes to stick around. [Read more…]
