Three to Focus on: Patriots @ Redskins, Week 14 |
The Redskins’ defense has struggled against tight ends, giving up five scores to them, the most recent example being Jason Witten’s 69-yard catch-and-run. Based on game tape so far this season, the Redskins will likely want to defend these two with Josh Wilson, O.J. Atogwe, or even the still-reliable London Fletcher, who has two picks and two passes defensed. The Patriots will just as likely try and force struggling slot CB Kevin Barnes (-5.2 coverage grade), DeAngelo Hall (-7.3) and safety Reed Doughty (-5.4) into coverage with their matchup nightmares.

"We’ve talked through the years as friends, as assistant coaches, coordinators, head coaches.
