The Patriots are off to yet another slow start.
They are tied with the Redskins 20-20 at halftime in Washington. Penalties have killed the Patriots. One pass interference call kept a Redskins drive alive that led to a touchdown. Another questionable roughing the passer penalty erased an interception and led to three points for the Redskins.
The Redskins have a touchdown on a gimmick play where Brandon Banks threw the ball sidearm. Tom Brady’s accuracy has been a little shaky on some key plays.
During the game, Rob Gronkowski set the all-time record for touchdown receptions in a season with his 14th score. He could have had two more, dropping one pass. Brady missed him open on another.
