The legend of Alex Smith seems to be growing with every passing week. After missing serious time because of a horrific leg injury in 2018, Smith is now running the show again for Washington.

Not only is he just running the show, but he ruined Pittsburgh’s Monday but handing them their first loss of the season.
Make that 11-1.

Props to Smith for putting his incredible toughness on display once again. The dude is a true ironman if we’ve ever seen one.
