The Redskins were down 14-0 and needed a big play to get back into the game. Alex Smith provided that spark with a huge 22 yard run. Smith looked like he was bottled up for a sack, and had 3 Falcons defenders trying to bring him down. He somehow broke free, and scrambled for a 22 yard gain. He paid for the gain by staying in bounds as the Falcons laid a major hit to his head. The Redskins finished the drive with a big pass to Maurice Harris, and then a 3 yard fade for a TD to Josh Doctson.
Great job by Smith making something out of nothing here, but damn what a hit he took pic.twitter.com/VRXO4k38eI— Mark Bullock (@MarkBullockNFL) November 4, 2018
It is incredible Alex Smith wasn't sacked on his long run.— Chad Ryan (@ChadwikoRCC) November 4, 2018
That is inspiring stuff from the QB. The type of play that can kick-start your offense after a slow start pic.twitter.com/VketnunG6N
Josh Doctson TD
Josh Doctson with some fancy footwork off the snap and in perfect position to receive the ball on the fade throw.— Chad Ryan (@ChadwikoRCC) November 4, 2018
Nice route. Nice throw. Nice 80 yard drive ends in a touchdown.#Redskins pic.twitter.com/aWdCyR6nxE
