Keys to the game -
The Patriots get a return of last year's center, Bryan Stork - who has yet to play a game in 2015. New England has suffered a rash of injuries on the offensive line and will have to work hard in this game to cover for lack of chemistry - the team will start two 'centers' on the line - one of them will have to play out of their natural position. Will this enable Washington to get enough of a pass rush to challenge the Pats?
On the Washington side, a key run stuffing interior lineman, Terrance Knighton is out - will this help the Patriots overcome offensive line deficiencies?
Washington must put pressure on Tom Brady or it will be a long day for the secondary. I don't know it their D lineman can put enough hits on Brady to stop this offense.
Look for the Patriots to continue their recent home dominance.
