Redskins vs. Seahawks Inactive List: Williams, Long among six starters out

SEATTLE—The Redskins’ list of inactive players is just as scary as everyone thought it would be:

  • OT Trent Williams
  • C Spencer Long
  • G Shawn Lauvao
  • TE Niles Paul
  • TE Jordan Reed
  • DL Matt Ioniddis
  • WR Jamison Crowder

If you’re keeping score, there are six starters on that list plus a key reserve.

With starters Williams (knee), Long (knees), and Lauvao (stinger) out and key reserve Ty Nsekhe active but likely available to play only in an emergency, the left side of the offensive line will the T.J. Clemmings at tackle, Arie Kouandjio or Tyler Catalina at guard, and Chase Roullier at center.

MORE REDSKINS: WHO WILL STEP UP WITH CROWDER OUT?

With Reed and Paul both out, the Redskins will have to rely on veteran Vernon Davis and rookie Jeremy Sprinkle at tight end. Davis is a known quantity but Sprinkle has been inactive for most games. Earlier this week Jay Gruden expressed confidence that Sprinkle can get the job done.

Ryan Grant likely will get most of the snaps in the slot while Josh Doctson and Terrelle Pryor work on the outside. Brian Quick, who has played only 11 snaps this year, will see some action to spell the starters.

2017 NFL Power Rankings: The NFC is much better than the AFC through 11 weeks

Through 11 weeks, the NFL's playoff picture is far from clear. But one thing is: The NFC is the superior conference. 

And that's not just because Nathan Peterman plays in the AFC.

NBC SPORTS WASHINGTON'S NEW POWER RANKINGS CAN BE FOUND RIGHT HERE

In this week's rankings, seven teams in the top 10 come from the NFC. The middle and back-end of the rankings even out, but at the top, one side of the league is stronger than the other.

The bottom line is that a few deserving squads in the NFC will miss out on the postseason. Meanwhile, in the opposite conference, a couple of mediocre ones will be playing in January.

To see who lands where overall in the post-Week 11 breakdown, click the link above or below. You know who No. 32 is, but there was plenty of movement in the other 31 spots.

Week 12 Redskins vs. Giants Thanksgiving Game Time, TV Channel, Live Stream, How to Watch

The Redskins enter Week 12 against the Giants on Thanksgiving looking for a lot of thanks. 

The Redskins were up by 15 points with less than 5 minutes to go against the Saints in Week 11. Despite being major underdogs, they thought they had the win in hand.

Then, as D.C. fans have witnessed all too often, everything fell apart.

Even after their terrific Week 9 win in Seattle, the Redskins still probably needed to split the next two against the Vikings and Saints.

It seemed like they had done exactly that, right up until Drew Brees reminded everyone why he's one of the greatest passers in NFL history.

The loss was doubly painful, as everybody's favorite breakout star Chris Thompson suffered a fractured fibula and will undergo season-ending surgery. Thompson has been one of the few bright spots on offense this season, and his loss will be felt by a team clinging to its playoff hopes.

Despite seeing yet another key cog go down with an injury this season, the team will look to bounce back against one of their NFC East rivals. The Giants have been one of the worst teams in the NFL this season, but are coming off a 12-9 win over a quality Chiefs squad, so the Redskins will have to show up ready to play.

On a short week against a division rival, anything can happen. Every game matters, but this is as much of a must-win for the Redskins as it gets. It's Thanksgiving night, and the Redskins will have the stage all to themselves. 

Before the Week 12 Redskins-Giants matchup, here's a preview of everything you need to know, including game time, TV channel and live-stream info.
