The New England Patriots and Washington football meet Thursday in NFL Week 1 pre-season action at Gillette Stadium.

The Washington football team enters the 2021 campaign looking to take another step forward under Ron Rivera, ending 2020 with a 7-9 record, but in the horrific NFC East, 7-9 was enough to win the division. It wasn’t good enough to give WFT an extended stint in the playoffs, as Washington was knocked out by eventual champion Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the Wild Card Round. There’s a new face under the center of the Washington football team, as Alex Smith has retired and will likely help develop a film about his life at some point, but until then, hopes for Washington’s starting QB land on the knees of Ryan Fitzpatrick, who has a history of being as hot and cold as he can get. Fans know FitzMagic is a fun guy to look out for, but the results aren’t always consistent. Antonio Gibson is back to lead running back for Washington, while Curtis Samuel has been signed to catch a nice brace on wide receiver with Terry McLaurin. Once again, Washington’s strength should be its defense, led by Chase Young, Montez Sweat and William Jackson III, who was drafted as a free agent during the offseason. As a team, Washington averaged 20.9 points per game on 316.3 total attacking yards while allowing 20.6 points per game and 304.6 yards per game last season.

The New England Patriots will look to bounce back after missing the playoffs for the first time since 2008 after finishing the season 7-9 the first year without Tom Brady on the roaster since 2000 and Cam Newton just hasn’t cut the mustard when he important, leading New England to draft Mac Jones at age 15e globally. James White and Sony Michel will once again lead the charge in the backfield for the Pats as it will be the first year without Julian Edelamn in the squad since 2009 when he retired in the offseason. Still, the Patriots have filled the void by calling on Nelson Agholor, Kendrick Bourne and Hunter Henry to help Tight End. Coach Bill Belichick is also hoping to make some defensive progress, as the Pats drafted Christan Barmore from Alabama to anchor the defensive line while Matthew Judon joins the charge at linebacker alongside Dont’a Hightower and Stephon. Gilmore, Kyle Dugger, JC Jakson and Devin McCoutry all come to charge high school from New England. As a team, New England averaged 20.4 PPG and 327.3 total attacking yards while allowing 22.1 PPG and 353.8 total defense yards per game last season.

Preseason football can be tricky because you never know who is going to play and for how long or if they will even adapt at all. Having said that, it’s also about depth and a lot of teams see what they have and side by side I think there are more depth and position battles within the Nova camp. England, especially at quarterback with Newton and Jones in the fold. I think we’re seeing a more inspired effort from New England after missing the playoffs last year and it’s not going to wait until the start of the season. It starts now. Give me New England and the points.
