Washington Football Team at New England Patriots odds and lines: All eyes on the QB battles

The Washington Football Team and New England Patriots get their preseason schedules underway Thursday. Kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m. ET at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Mass. Below, we look at the Washington at Patriots odds and lines.

All eyes seem to be fixated on the quarterback competition in Washington as head coach Ron Rivera enters his second season at the helm. While no one truly believes offseason acquisition QB Ryan Fitzpatrick won’t be under center when Week 1 rolls around, Rivera’s comments Sunday seem to suggest he may get a few more reps than expected in their preseason opener before giving way to QB Taylor Heinicke.

New England also has a quarterback battle on its hands. The expectation for the Patriots is that veteran QB Cam Newton will start in Week 1 but first-round draft pick QB Mac Jones has been seeing more first-team snaps in recent practices. Patriots fans will surely want to get a good look at their new prospect after a difficult first season for Newton in 2020.

Thursday’s preseason opener for the two teams is likely to see a lot of backup play after the first few drives. The backups are likely to give way to the third team in the second half as coaches for both squads try to get a look at players nearer the roster bubble.
