The New England Patriots will be counting heavily on Patrick Chung against the Washington Redskins.
The veteran strong safety likely will spend most of Sunday afternoon lined up across from tight end Jordan Reed, who’s coming off of an 11-catch, 72-yard, two-touchdown performance in Week 7. The Patriots have allowed just five catches and 41 yards per game with two total touchdowns to tight ends this season thanks to strong coverage from their safeties.
