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.

Carlos Dunlap's hand may have been all that stopped the San Francisco 49ers from scoring on their final play during their 30-23 loss to the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday. The 49ers had the ball on a 4th-and-Goal with seconds to play when quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo spotted wide receiver Trent Sherfield open near the end zone. Garoppolo threw the ball in Sherfield's direction, only to have it batted away by the 6-7 defensive end. With the game on the line, the Seahawks defense came up HUGE 💪📺 Re-watch the game »



49ers' Nick Bosa, Kyle Juszczyk among top vote-getters for Pro Bowl

Voting for the upcoming Pro Bowl has been underway for a while now. The NFL released some stats on the leading vote-getters so far. Two San Francisco 49ers currently lead their respective positions. Kyle Juszczyk leads all fullbacks with 70,362 fan votes. Nick Bosa leads NFC defensive ends with 68,143 votes. Juszczyk, a nine-year veteran, has been named to the last five Pro Bowls, with the first coming in 2016. He is widely considered to be the best fullback in the NFL. Although, his 62.5 overall Pro Football Focus grade this season is his lowest mark since his rookie campaign. Bosa is proving to be even more dominant than he was in his 2019 NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year campaign. He has already surpassed his rookie sack total of nine with a



John Lynch says Frank Gore loves 49ers' Deebo Samuel as a running back

On Wednesday morning, San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch joined KNBR. A former NFL running back and 49ers fan favorite, Frank Gore, was with Lynch in team CEO Jed York's suite this past Sunday during the team's 30-10 victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars. He remains close with the York family and continues to be a big fan of his former organization. Gore was treated to watching a 79-yard, one-touchdown rushing performance from Deebo Samuel — a wide receiver. That came on just eight attempts, meaning the receiver averaged nearly 10 yards per carry. Gore believes Samuel is so impressive that the third-year wideout is good enough to be a great running back. "He loves Deebo as a running back," Lynch said. "He probably feels that if we
