Gameday: San Francisco 49ers at Washington Redskins

Nov 25, 2013 at 12:00 AM--




Tonight, the San Francisco 49ers will travel to Landover, Maryland to face the Washington Redskins at FedExField. The two teams last met on November 6, 2011 when the 49ers beat the Redskins 19-11 in Landover.

Offensively, the 49ers are ranked 29th in the league while the Redskins are ranked 6th. Defensively, the 49ers are ranked 7th in the league while the Redskins are ranked 28th.


Both Colin Kaepernick and Robert Griffin III shocked fans with their dynamic play in 2012. This season has been a letdown for both quarterbacks. Last season, the 49ers and Redskins both won their respective divisions. This season, both teams are trying to get back to winning and hoping to avoid dropping their third straight game. Kaepernick has a quarterback rating of 81.8 while Griffin is slightly higher at 83.6. Neither rating is impressive. That is a huge downgrade from the expectations for each player.

Kaepernick has surpassed 200 yards passing only twice this season and has not done it since week 6. Whether it is accurate or not, a lot of the blame in San Francisco has been placed on his shoulders. He could regain some confidence against the Redskins, who rank 26th against the pass.

Griffin has had his leadership skills under scrutiny this week after some post-game comments following a 24-16 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles when he seemed to exonerate himself from all blame.

A positive for both teams are their rushing attacks. Frank Gore has led a 49ers team that is rushing for 141 yards per game. Alfred Morris has led a Redskins team that is rushing for 155 yards per game.

The 49ers are fighting for a wildcard spot in the playoffs with multiple teams, including division opponent Arizona, who after a win over the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday, sit at 7-4. The 49ers must win in order to keep up.

Last week, the 49ers (6-4) were defeated 23-20 by the New Orleans Saints. The Redskins (3-7) were defeated by the Philadelphia Eagles 24-16.

The game kicks off at 5:40 PM PT and, as usual, you can visit 49erswebzone.com for the latest news and updates during and after the game.

The NFL revealed its complete 272-game 2021 regular-season schedule on Wednesday at 5:00 p.m. PT. The San Francisco 49ers open the season with back-to-back road games against the Detroit Lions at Ford Field and then the Philadelphia Eagles at Lincoln Financial Field.

49ers rookie safety Talanoa Hufanga on 49ers legacies, learning from Troy Polamalu

The connections to some of the all-time great safeties are strong for 49ers rookie Talanoa Hufanga as he begins his NFL career. Hufanga, who was selected by the 49ers in Round 5 of the 2021 NFL Draft after a standout career as a safety at USC, is currently at 49ers facilities with other members of his draft class as he prepares for rookie minicamp this weekend (Friday-Saturday). He spoke to reporters on Wednesday about his relationship to three legendary safeties in particular in Troy Polamalu, 49ers legend Ronnie Lott, and 49ers general manager John Lynch. Hufanga first spoke about Polamalu, with whom he has a well-documented relationship after the



Former 49ers GM likes Trey Lance over Zach Wilson

By David Bonilla

Scot McCloughan spent two seasons as the San Francisco 49ers general manager, helping build the roster eventually taken over by Trent Baalke and Jim Harbaugh. Before that, he was the team's VP of personnel. Matt Barrows of The Athletic spoke with McCloughan to get his opinion of his former team's most recent draft class. While his pre-draft grades had Zach Wilson, whom the New York Jets selected at No. 2, rated higher than Trey Lance, the 49ers' pick, McCloughan would have personally selected Lance over Wilson. He wouldn't have, however, traded two future first-round picks to move up to get him. The inexperience at North Dakota State and the level of competition created too many unknowns. But personally, he still liked Lance more than
