Knowing that the recovery effort in the Bahamas following Hurricane Matthew is going to be a lengthy one, Redskins owner Daniel Snyder has been doing what he can to pitch in.
According to Mike Garafolo, Snyder and his wife Tanya sent a plane carrying supplies such as water, utensils and food to the area in order to help those affected by the disaster:
Obie Wilchcombe, Minister of Tourism in the Bahamas, released a statement that read in part, "We want to thank the Redskins, especially owners Daniel and Tanya Snyder, who are no strangers to our beautiful country. It is our hope that other organizations will follow the example set by the Redskins. I think it is safe to say that the Redskins organization has gained even more Bahamian fans this football season.”

The most surprising outcome from Week 10 in the NFL season was the Tennessee Titans 34-10 thrashing of the New England Patriots.
How far did New England fall? How high did the Patriots rise?
Despite missing three starting offensive lineman and several other key contributors due to injury, the Redskins got back in the win column with a 16-3 victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. With a two game lead in the NFC East, their stock rose a tad.
Coming off their bye week, the Eagles fell to the Cowboys on Sunday Night Football. How were each of their rankings affected?
The Saints won their eighth straight, while the Steelers won their fifth straight. Where do these two rank in the Top 5?
The battle for No. 32 is perhaps more interesting than the battle for No. 1, but the Raiders stay in control of the bottom spot for now.

The version of Adrian Peterson the Redskins have been getting this year — the one who currently sits as the NFL's fifth-leading rusher and the one who has been the team's only consistent offensive threat — hasn't even been the fully in-shape version, according to Peterson.
If you take him at his word, that's a pretty frightening thought for non-Redskins defenses to ponder.
After practice on Wednesday, the 33-year-old was asked about how he's feeling after dealing with ankle and shoulder problems earlier in the season. Those problems are apparently now all behind him.
"Last week, I actually started feeling all the way healthy," he said in the 'Skins locker room. "My shoulder, I'm back to bench pressing. I hadn't done that in three weeks. And so I'm back to doing the normal things that I was able to do. My ankle's feeling good, my body's just feeling refreshed."
Oh, so the guy who's been averaging nearly 75 yards per game on about 17 carries per game and the guy who's scored four total touchdowns through nine contests is only just now back to normal?
"Second half has been a blessing to me, you know?" he said. "It was a grind the first eight weeks, and here now, as I stand in front of you, my body's feeling amazing."
Must be nice to be one of the sport's best players of this generation, huh?
