Here’s what you can realistically expect from the Washington Football Team against the Giants in Week 6.

It may not be an exaggeration to say that the only positive to come from last week’s Washington Football Team loss is that Alex Smith completed his comeback to the football field. By now, everyone knows the comeback story, and it truly was a cool moment to see his wife and kids give him a standing ovation when he took the field.

Outside of that story, there’s very little to be enthusiastic, encouraged, or happy about as relates to this football team after their fourth straight loss. The offense was anemic, the defense looked completely lost for the majority of the game, and the apparent lack of coaching creativity and effectiveness and was disheartening.

But, in the NFC East in 2020, even 1-4 teams can dream, so Washington faces New York this week with the distinct possibility of taking back 1st place in the division. So with that, here are the Week 6 WFT reality checks.
