Washington Redskins Routed By New England Patriots 27-10


The New England Patriots struck early and often as they rout the Washington Redskins 27-10.

The Redskins had high hopes going into their week 9 match up with the undefeated Patriots.  Their hopes were smacked down real quick as Tom Brady and the Patriots scored a TD on the opening drive, and then the Patriots intercepted Kirk Cousins on his first play from scrimmage.  The Patriots turned the interception into another TD, and it was 14-0 after the first few minutes of the game.  It could have been worse, because the Patriots recovered an onside kick.  The Redskins’ defense showed some pride and stripped the ball from wide receiver Julian Edelman.  It didn’t change the outcome, but it avoided some embarrassment.

Kirk Cousins finished the game 22-40 for 217 yards and 1 TD.  The Redskins were held to only 3 points until Cousins connected on a 3 yard TD pass to Jordan Reed with just 25 seconds left in the game.  The Redskins offense was held to a lousy 33 yards rushing and just a total of 250 yards and 10 points.

The Redskins fall to 3-5, and will next face the New Orleans Saints.
