Quinton Dunbar played his best game in a Redskins uniform last week in New York. He grabbed two interceptions and displayed true shutdown cornerback skill. 

In fact, Pro Football Focus rated Dunbar's performance as the best cornerback play by any player in the league so far this season. That's major praise. 

Though he missed two games earlier this year with a knee issue, Dunbar did not land on the Redskins final injury report before this weekend's game. Josh Norman did, and while Washington head coach Jay Gruden said he expects Norman to play, the Redskins will need Dunbar to perform with Norman on the mend. 

It doesn't help that the Redskins defense is already struggling and now Tom Brady and the Patriots come to town. New England is averaging more than 30 points-per-game and Brady is averaging 270 passing yards-per-game. 

The Patriots will test the Redskins in every way imaginable. Dunbar shows flashes of tremendous talent, it was on display last week against the Giants, and the Redskins will need to see it again Sunday.
