Patriots - Redskins: Preview with Adam Caplan

Sirius NFL Radio host Adam Caplan spent a few minutes sharing insights with Patriots Insider Jon Scott on the Week 8 game between the New England Patriots and the Washington Redskins. Caplan also weighed in on various league news including; the Colts, the wildfires in Southern California and more.

The New England Patriots undefeated record is a hot topic across the nation, but they're not the only team in the league with a 7-0 record. The Indianapolis Colts also have an unblemished record after facing arguably their biggest test of the year - the Jacksonville Jaguars. Manning and crew effectively neutralized the Jaguars aggressive defense with quick strikes, and a heavy dose of their ground game mixed in with timely strikes to Dallas Clark and Reggie Wayne. They went on to win handily 29-7.

The Colts are happy to be flying under the radar. Caplan comments on the Colts' reaction to the Patriots hype and whether the team is jealous of New England grabbing all the headlines.
