The Thanksgiving matchup was Smith’s fifth game played this season and his third start since suffering a brutal injury in 2018.
“There are so many things I think we take for granted in our life,” Smith told NFL Network prior to the game. “We should [be thankful] more often than one day a year and… realize how lucky we are for so many things.”
"I feel like I'm getting my second chance." 🙏
From life-saving surgery, to starting for @WashingtonNFL on Thanksgiving, QB Alex Smith's two-year journey has been inspirational 💪
