Watch: Patriots-Redskins Brings Back Memories Of This Iconic Rob Gronkowski Play

The New England Patriots confront the Washington Redskins on a road game for the first time since Week 14 of the 2011 season. The Patriots arrived in Washington and the final score was 34-27 to improve to 11-3. Retired tight end Rob Gronkowski was the star of the show. He had six receptions for 160 yards and two touchdowns.

Gronk’s best play of the match was a 49-yard reception in the first quarter. It was more than obvious that Gronk has an incredible receiving ability, awareness and strength. Gronk’s second touchdown in the game was the 15h of the 2011 season. It set a new NFL record for the most touchdown receptions by a tight end in a season.

The Redskins will have to try really hard to defeat Tom Brady and the rest of the team. Defensive coordinator Greg Manusky knows that his team has hard time getting to opposing quarterbacks. The team will work on improving this issues.

“He sits in the pocket and knows exactly where he’s going to go with the ball,” Manusky said. “He’s like the offensive coordinator. He know exactly where to go. From our standpoint, we have to disguise as much as we can on each and every down.”

Defensive lineman Jonathan Allen doesn’t really pay attention to Brady and the Patriots’ power to win Super Bowls. We all know that head coach Bill Belichick, Brady and the rest of the team are the best to play the game. Allen knows this, but he isn’t too worried about this. He is more interested in the defensive line and the upcoming match. They plan to get the Redskins’ pass rush close to Brady.

“It’s really the same keys every week,” Allen said. “You have to make a team one dimensional and then … pin your ears back as a defensive line and rush.”

This is an important game for both teams, but it’s really important for Brady. He is set to pass another milestone, and the Patriots nation looks forward to see him achieve that. Let’s see what happens on Sunday. Game on, Patriots! Let’s go!
