The Patriots finish off a three game home stand with a Sunday afternoon matchup against the Washington Redskins. After wins over the Jets and Dolphins the Patriots are looking to go 8-0 to start the season.

Kickoff is scheduled for 1 p.m. and the game will be televised on Fox with Kevin Burkhardt, John Lynch on the call with Pam Oliver handling sideline duties. The game can be seen locally on Fox 25 and as always the radio call is on the Patriots flagship station 98.5 with Bob Socci and Scott Zolak on the call.

The Redskins (3-4) had a big come-from-behind win over the Tampa Bay Bucs 31-30. After falling behind 24-0, the Skins rallied behind Kirk Cousins who quarterbacked them to a game winning touchdown pass with under a minute left. In the downtrodden NFC East this season, Washington is only a half game out of the division lead.

The Patriots (7-0), dominated the Miami Dolphins 36-7 behind another stellar Tom Brady performance. Brady completed 26 – 38 passes for 356 yards and four touchdowns and is leading the NFL in passer rating with 115.8. On the season he has 20 touchdown passes against only one interception.

We here at PatsFans.com are continuing our  “Razor’s Edge”  column in 2015 to give a quick break down on some of the key matchups of the game and what you can look for in how the game plays out.

Series History: The Patriots and Redskins will meet for only the 10th time in their history. The Redskins lead overall 6-3 and won six straight contests between 1978 and 2003. The Patriots won the last two including their last meeting a 34-27 meeting in Washington in 2011.

Here is a look at some of the key matchups and who holds the Razor’s Edge.
