The 49ers dropped another close contest, this time to Washington 26-24 in a back and forth game.

Washington opened the game by scoring 17 straight points before the 49ers benched starting quarterback Brian Hoyer in favor of rookie CJ Beathard, who led the ensuing scoring drive right before the half to cut it to 17-7.

The 49ers came out in the second half and kicked a field goal to make it 17-10, after which former 49er Vernon Davis fumbled and safety Jimmie Ward returned the ball back to the Washington 1-yard line. Carlos Hyde ran the ball into the end zone from there for his second touchdown of the day.

The team seemed to get a spark from Beathard, who was making throws all over the field. He threw his first career touchdown pass to wide receiver Aldrick Robinson in the fourth quarter on a nice throw after keeping his eyes downfield with the rush closing in.

Questionable officiating marred an otherwise entertaining affair. Cornerback K'wuan Williams was flagged in the end zone with less than four minutes to play in the fourth quarter, which gave Washington a first down. Kirk Cousins ran the ball in from there to make it 26-17 to seemingly put the game out of reach. Later in the fourth, with the game in the balance, wide receiver Pierre Garçon was called for offensive pass interference despite being the intended receiver on the play. The penalty moved the 49ers out of field goal range.

Beathard led a valiant comeback attempt at the end of the game as he engineered a drive that brought the 49ers into Washington territory with a chance to win the game in the closing seconds before Garçon's penalty. Head coach Kyle Shanahan has named Beathard the starter going forward.

Game Notes


-Beathard finished the day 19-36 with 245 yards passing and a touchdown plus a late-game desperation throw that was intercepted.

-Pierre Garçon had 12 targets on the day, catching five of them for 55 yards.

-Solomon Thomas had a sack and led the team with nine tackles, including two for loss.

-Rashard Robinson had an interception of Kirk Cousins a play after an interception was called back.

-The 49ers have set an NFL record by losing five straight games by a total of 13 points.

The 49ers return home next week to face Dallas at Levi's Stadium.
