Andre Carter clearly has an edge at right end with Trent Williams out at left tackle for Washington. What are the other keys in this match up.
Key #1 Jamaal Brown VS Mark Anderson
The one on one match ups between Redskins right tackle Jamaal Brown and Patriots left end Mark Anderson will be key. Washington is pass blocking and run blocking by keeping things balanced and that is why Brown has to step up for Washington to win.
Key #2 Washington Redskins Receivers VS New England Patriots Secondary
The New England Patriots secondary may be depleted. Does Washington have any receivers that can create separation in this match up?
Key #3 Stop Roy Helu Jr.
Roy Helu Jr. the rookie back from Nebraska is the Redskins most promising player on offense. Can New England’s defense stop Helu today? Washington could keep this game really close if Helu has a big game.
