The San Francisco 49ers remain winless after losing their fifth-straight game by three-or-fewer points – this time to the Washington Redskins. That's an NFL record. Washington improves to a record of 3-2 while San Francisco falls to 0-6.

Key Player Statistics


Rookie quarterback C.J. Beathard replaced Brian Hoyer in the second quarter. Beathard went on to complete 19 of 36 pass attempts for 245 yards and a touchdown. His first career touchdown pass came on a 45-yard pass to wide receiver Aldrick Robinson.

Beathard completed just three of his 9 pass attempts for 13 yards while under pressure. He completed three of his seven pass attempts for 98 yards, a touchdown, and an interception on throws of 20-or-more yards downfield. Beathard's Pro Football Focus quarterback rating ranked ninth among quarterbacks during Week 6.

Running back Carlos Hyde had two rushing touchdowns in the game, which increased his season total to four and career total to 16.
