4. Jabar Gaffney vs. his former team
With tight end Fred Davis (59 catches, 796 yards) beginning a four-game suspension for violating the league's substance abuse policy, it is the former Patriot Gaffney who will take the field Sunday as the Redskins' leading active receiver. While he's far from a game-breaker, Patriots fans need no reminder from his time in New England (2006-08) that he's dependable route-runner with sure hands. In other words, a fine third receiver. While he's not the most difficult challenge the Patriots' 32d-ranked pass defense will face, it was apparent by the praise Tom Brady heaped on him this week that he's still respected in Foxborough.
