The New England Patriots are experienced with not overlooking any opponent regardless of the records coming into a game.
"That's for sure. I'm sure (coach) Bill (Belichick) will put you in the right place if he catches you slipping up and looking past them," defensive tackle Alan Branch said on Tuesday.
"I feel like it's just the whole locker room in general — we're not that type of players that (take) this game for granted or anything.
The Patriots (7-0) are heavy favorites over the Washington Redskins (3-4) on Sunday.
"You never can overlook anybody," cornerback Malcolm Butler said.
"Any player, any position, any team, any company, anything, you can't just overlook people. You gotta just go out there and play lights out. Winning record, losing record — you just gotta go out there and play a hundred percent.
"You never can overlook anybody. That's just how it is. Every team in the NFL is good, so you gotta play hard every game, every snap."
Defensive end Rob Ninkovich agreed.
"In the NFL, every team is very talented," he said. "There's explosive players on every team and this is another team that we're playing here that has a lot of great, talented football players.
"It's the NFL. Everybody's good players," safety Duron Harmon said. "Everybody can play. Most games are close games so it's not like everybody's getting blown out. Everybody's competitive.
