LANDOVER, Md. (AP) -- Tom Brady took the night off, and Robert Griffin III played one series Thursday night as the Washington Redskins beat the New England Patriots 23-6 in the teams' preseason opener.

Griffin completed 2 of 4 passes for 9 yards in an 11-play drive that ended with a 39-yard field goal from Kai Forbath.

Coach Bill Belichick rested Brady, Darrelle Revis and most of his starters. The first-teamers already had plenty of good work against the Redskins this week during three days of joint practices at Washington's training camp facility.

Backups Kirk Cousins and Colt McCoy each threw a touchdown pass for the Redskins under new coach Jay Gruden. Washington went a tension-filled 3-13 last year, costing coach Mike Shanahan his job.
