How to live stream the Washington vs Patriots game?
Washington Football Team is the NFC East champions and they will do everything in their hands to prove it.
Let it be pre-season games or regular ones, the reigning NFC East title-holders are likely to come out all guns blazing.
With the help of a great edge rusher in Chase Young and an equally great attack led by veteran quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick, Washington should win this one with ease.
Where do both the teams stand?
Washington has an extremely solid position as it is entering this season’s clash pursuing a second straight NFC East title after winning the division. There will be a tough competition between QB Ryan Fitzpatrick and QB Taylor Heinicke. Both are in form and will play their best. However, it is expected that Ryan Fitzpatrick will play as a starter.
The strongest thing about the Washington team is their defense. On its day it can compete with the defensive front of any team in the NFL.
Though CB Stephon Gilmore of New England will not be playing in this game, still the team will march with a fierce defensive system. However, one thing that they are still searching for is a permanent starting QB of their own.
It is expected that QB Cam Newton and QB Mac Jones will be playing the game. Jones will be taking the field in an NFL game for the first time.
Ron Rivera’s calculated approach is the key to Washington’s success
Rivera’s arrival to the Washington team has brought positive changes. His team-building strategy is working for them. He searches for able and fit players who complement each other
His greatest scheme for his football team in free agency was signing QB Ryan Fitzpatrick to a one-year deal of $10 million. Rivers was convinced that Ryan would change and improve his teammates both on and off the field.
Rivera once praised Ruan’s abilities in a media session and said, “He was a guy that when I was in Carolina at one time and we had to compete against him, you always sat there and go, ‘Gosh this guy – there’s something about this guy,’” Rivera said in a media session last week. “It’s going to be intriguing for us to see exactly how it unfolds and how it fits with us.”
The 16 years of experience of QB Ryan Fitzpatrick will surely bring more understanding of the game to the young players. The veteran will certainly fulfill the duties of a placeholder in the team. This strategy of the coach has worked positively for the team but the rest is in the hands of players and their hard work.
