The Washington Redskins have lost three in a row without Alex Smith and now find themselves in a must win scenario against the New York Giants who have won three of their last five games.
As an update to the Smith situation, his family along with the Redskins released this statement:
“On behalf of Alex Smith, we appreciate all of the concerns and prayers over the injury he incurred on November 18th against the Houston Texans,” the statement said. “Although this is a serious injury, Alex and his family remain strong. We would ask that everyone please honor the Smith family’s request for privacy at this time.”
It appears as if the Redskins fans have pulled the plug on the season as they are wanting the team to tank for a higher draft pick. Some though have kept calm and kept their confidence in the Redskins even though the season is crumbling at their feet.

24-17 will be the score....I’m hoping it’s Skins on top but that’s as far as I’ll go with it. That will be score of the game! #HTTR #ButtFumbleFTW

31-10 Giants. I have no faith in Sanchize. Here’s to a top ten pick and hopefully Dwayne Haskins or Justin Herbert. Well have to trade up to get one of them, and we should. #Redskins #HTTR

10 - 7 Skins if Gruden can coach then he can control the ball and clock with Sanchez but if he can't then Barkley will lead the Giants to a 21 - 10 win

If the Redskins lose on Sunday, does that mean Jay Gruden’s job is in jeopardy? You would have to think so, right?
