Clinging to a one touchdown lead in the fourth quarter, the Patriots had a chance to put some distance between themselves and Washington in the red-zone. On 3rd and four from the Washington 4-yard line, Brady tried to hit wide receiver Tiquan Underwood in the end-zone but was picked off by Josh Wilson, who got away with a jersey tug on Underwood before the interception. After returning to the sidelines, Brady got into a shouting match with his offensive coordinator Bill O'Brien.
Players and coaches had to step in to separate O'Brien from Brady. The Patriots held on to win the game 34-27.
