5 big matchups in Patriots-Redskins
Here's a strange quirk in Patriots history: They've never won a game in Washington. While that would have been understandable in the '60s, '70s and especially the first Joe Gibbs era in the '80s and early '90s, you'd think they'd have won one there at some point during their extended run of excellence under Bill Belichick. (Still hard to believe they lost to the Steve Spurrier-coached 'Skins in 2003.)
The Patriots (9-3) should claim that elusive first win at Washington Sunday when they face the 4-8 Redskins. Here are five matchups to watch.
