Open Thread: New England Patriots vs. Washington Redskins, Week 8

The New England Patriots are 7-0 for the first time in franchise history. Today they look to end the first half of the season perfectly, meeting their second NFC East opponent of the season.

We all know by now that the Patriots have beaten 30 of the other 31 teams in the league since Tom Brady started his first game under center in 2001. The last team on the list is Washington. The Patriots have played the Redskins just once since then, a 20-17 loss on the road. This time, the game's in Foxboro.
