Another Sunday, another grotesque injury that is bound to devastate a contending team. With the Redskins sniffing an NFC East title and playoff berth, they're now forced to evaluate their options following a horrifying injury to Alex Smith. Here's the disgusting video, and please look away if you're squeamish.
Smith's leg was simply not meant to bend that way.
If Smith misses extended time (and it's safe to say it'll be a massive upset if he doesn't, based on the clear video evidence), that opens the door wide for the Cowboys' defense to continue swarming all the way to a division title.
Even the Eagles are still in play, and the Giants (seriously) remain on the fringes of contention, if they can run the table.

Best of luck to Smith and the Redskins moving forward; the team has to regroup and play Thursday on Thanksgiving against the Cowboys.
