After months of anticipation, we will finally be seeing the 2014 New England Patriots out on the field. Of course, this is the preseason, so it may not feel like a real game, but for the few snaps the starters are out there, we will be in for a treat.
The Patriots have dominated the Skins all week long, specifically on offense, where Tom Brady and company have simply embarrassed the Washington defense. If Brady only gets one or two series (which is likely), I have a feeling he will put two scores on the board. On the other side of the ball, all eyes will be on new cornerbacks Darrelle Revis, and Brandon Browner, who will be making their Patriots debut. Both have reportedly been excellent in camp, particularly Revis, who appears to be on a mission to show he is still the best in the game.
Let’s go Pats!
