Perhaps that 65-yard first quarter touchdown run by Washington's Steven Sims made the New England Patriots defense angry. Sims never gained another yard while the Patriots put up 27 unanswered points.

The Pats score a 33-7 win over the Redskins and move to 5-0.

The defense has now allowed just 20 points in the five wins.

Sunday afternoon the Patriots defense had five sacks, eight tackles for a loss, eight quarterback hits. The D also had an interception and a fumble recovery.

Meanwhile, after throwing the ball 31 times in the first half, Tom Brady and company went to the run in the second half.

Sony Michel  led the way with 91 yards on 16 carries, including a TD. As a team, the Pats rushed for 130 yards.

Brady finished 28-for-42, 348 yards, three TDs and an interception. The scoring plays went to Julian Edelman, Ryan Izzo and Brandon Bolden.

Edelman led the receivers with eight catches for 110 yards.

New kicker Mike Nugent missed his first PAT attempt but then nailed the next three. He also was 2-for-2 kicking field goals.
