Chargers Tackle Sam Tevi:
Sam Tevi started the loss against the Los Angeles Rams. He’s been getting more playing time due to injuries on the team. I can’t wait for him to find his groove so he can start putting up numbers.

Washington Redskins Quarterback Alex Smith:
Ale Smith attempted 20 passes and completed 12 of them. He threw for 2 touchdowns, 1 interception and had 20 rushing yards. Two plays that stood out to me were in the second quarter. The first one was near the 7-minute mark on 3rd and 6 when Smith avoided the blitz and completed a 34-yard pass to tight end Jordan Reed. The second play was on 1st and goal near the 4:30 mark when Smith connected with wide receiver Jamison Crowder right up the middle and squeezed the ball between two defenders for a 9-yard touchdown.
