      I think there's an overall understanding that our passing attack is weak. The fans and mediots see it, and so obviously does the coaching staff. What Alex is being asked to do is quite a bit different than what he did in KC. He's struggling to adjust. And his unfamiliarity with our receiving weapons has been been made exponentially more difficult by a rotating cast of players including guys who were working at Walmart a month ago. Pass pro has been inexplicably spotty at best.

      On the other hand, we stumbled onto a giant gold nugget in AP. Gone are the complaints that Gruden won't commit to the run. Now the narrative ...

      REDSKINS HEAD COACH JAY GRUDEN

      On injuries:
      "I didn’t get them all right now, so I'll give them to you tomorrow or whenever I talk to you."

      On the ending of the game:
      "Oh it's great to beat Dallas. That's all I care about. There's a lot of things you think about. We could’ve done this, we could’ve done that, we could’ve put them away here. But at the end of the day, the only objective was to win the football game and whatever it takes and happy and psyched for our team. They battled."

      On holding Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott to the second worst rushing total in his career:
      "It was very important. You know, it was very, very important. He's a great, great player and it takes all 11 men on defense to get him ...

      REDSKINS QUARTERBACK ALEX SMITH

      On the field goal attempt:
      “I was going nuts. I wasn’t sure if Jay [Gruden] was going to try to call the timeout or not and try to ice him, play that game. I didn’t know – you’re looking around for any flags and making sure it’s officially official. Then you’re celebrating. It’s a big win, it’s hard, it’s really really hard to win football games in this league, especially against a team like that within the division. It was a hard-fought game, and you don’t always want them to come down to that kind of dramatic finish, but we’ll take it.”

      On being first in the division:
      “No, I think the division game means a ton because you know there’s going to be huge ramifications down the line. It’s almost worth two with the head-to-head, I think that’s the biggest thing. I think records and first place—we’re six games in, it’s pretty early to talk about that kind of stuff. But you do realize that those division games down the line have huge ramifications as far as the division goes in the NFC.”

      On his play in the first half to TE Jeremy Sprinkle:
      “Yeah, I mean I think for us offensively, specifically myself –redzone I think obviously jumps out right away post game. If we do a better job in the redzone, then the game could have ended much differently maybe not as dramatic. We could have opened that ...

      REDSKINS QB ALEX SMITH

      On how the team responded to last week’s loss throughout the week in practice and during the game:
      “I think the toughest thing about it - you play this game long enough, it can be humbling - the margin of error is so small. Even that Monday night, I think with the travel coming home, we didn’t get back until 4 or 5 a.m. Tuesday, short week, good football team coming in… physical football team, to use that as motivation, put it behind us, prepare, recover, all that stuff for this game, I thought the team did a heck of a job. Everybody included in that. Tall task. It was hard to move on from that. It lingered… it definitely lingered. But I do hope that the sense of urgency, the preparation that we had this week can kind of take it with us as we move forward.”

      On if the “lingering” had a positive effect to keep everyone sharp:
      “No, I think that you want to go to a game to prepare in the right way, I feel like we’ve done that every week. There’s so many little things and variables that go into that. The games only mount and they only get bigger and bigger and this week’s a great example of that. They just get bigger. The goal is that it’s still so early in the season that you continue to move forward, you continue to improve from every game - good or bad, all the stuff in between. ...

      REDSKINS HEAD COACH JAY GRUDEN

      On injuries:
      "No injuries of note. Brandon Scherff just tweaked his knee but he came back into the game."

      On the character of the team after ups and downs:
      "Well I think it's good. I think that’s the way this football season is going to be for a lot of teams in the NFL. I don’t think anybody can enjoy success all the time. You're going to face adversity and we have to meet it. It was great to see our guys bounce back after a tough performance on Monday night on a short week against a very talented and very well coached Carolina Panther football team, so I'm happy. You know, [we're] 3-2 right now and we faced adversity throughout the game but everybody kept fighting and stayed together, stayed positive ...

      Head Coach Jay Gruden

      On injuries:
      "Did not participate was [Troy] Apke, hamstring; [Josh] Doctson, heel; [Shawn] Lauvao, calf. Limited were [Josh] Norman, hamstring; [Adrian] Peterson, ankle; Paul Richardson, shoulder; [Brandon] Scherff, knee. Full were Zach Brown, oblique, and Ryan Anderson, hamstring."

      On WR Josh Doctson's injury:
      "He got kicked in the heel on Monday on our bonus day and is sore. He'll be day to day."

      On if he fears that Doctson will miss the game:
      "Fear? No fear. [Laughter] I don't know he's day to day so we will have to wait to see how he improves, get him out there running, hopefully by tomorrow or the next day."

      On RB Adrian Peterson:
      "He did a little bit today. He did good. He did fine. We did some individual with him, got a couple of team reps and then we sent him in to get some more rehab, but he looked good. He wanted to cut a few times and did and is making progress."

      On making a decision on G Shawn Lauvao's and where to play ...

      Head Coach Jay Gruden

      Opening statement:
      "Tomorrow we shall give you the updates on the injuries. So, you're going to have to wait until tomorrow."

      On WR Josh Doctson not practicing today:
      "We will give you an update tomorrow on the injuries, John."

      On if Doctson's absence is injury related:
      "I don't know. I can't remember. [Laughter] Is that it? [Laughter]"

      On if he feels QB Alex Smith is underappreciated compared to other quarterbacks in the league:
      "Yeah, probably, you know, statistically, he's probably not where those guys are, but production-wise as far as wins and losses, he's got to be up there close. I know we're happy to have ...
