BOSTON (CBS) — WBZ-TV’s Levan Reid brings you everything you need to know heading into Sunday’s Patriots-Redskins clash in Washington D.C.
– This is the 11th time that the Pats and the Redskins will meet in the regular season. The Redskins own a 6-4 record against the Patriots, but New England has won each of the last three meetings.
– The Pats are 1-2 when playing the Redskins in the nation’s capital.
– Since the 2002 season, the Patriots are 54-14 against the NFC. Tom Brady owns 52 wins over the conference.
– With a win, the Pats will improve to 5-0 for the fifth time in team history and the fourth time under Bill Belichick.
– With a win, the Pats will earn their 104th victory on the road since 2000. Brady has 94 career road wins, the most ever for a quarterback.
– The Patriots defense leads the NFL with 10 interceptions. They’re tied for the NFL lead with the Carolina Panthers with 18 sacks. They’ve recorded five sacks in three games this season.
