THE TEAM NEWS

SAN FRANCISCO 49ERS

  • San Francisco produced one of the defensive displays of the season as they came out on top of their NFC West clash with the LA Rams to continue their magnificent start to the season with the 49ers yet to taste defeat.
  • Despite heading into the game with the Rams with a troublesome groin injury, 49ers TE George Kittle produced a great display with 103 yards although the injury might need to be managed during practice.
  • The 49ers had nine players sit out Thursday’s practice which is not new to them due to suffering several injury issues in this early part of the season whilst WR Deebo Samuel was still unable to practice because of a groin problem.

WASHINGTON REDSKINS

  • Washington picked up their first victory of the season as they defeated Miami but were thankful of a botched 2-pt conversion to avoid OT but they will face a much more difficult contest against unbeaten San Francisco.
  • The Redskins made several roster moves before the game with the Dolphins with TE Jordan Reed placed on IR because of concussion issues and that puts his future with the franchise in serious doubt.
  • Five players sat out both of the first two practice sessions of the week with RB Chris Thompson the most concerning among the list as he deals with a minor toe injury which would give veteran Adrian Peterson more work if he is unable to go.

THE PREDICTION

San Francisco produced a performance last week that will send a message to the rest of the NFL as they highlighted their credentials with a brilliant win against the LA Rams. Their defense made several huge stops to remain unbeaten and now up against a poor Washington side, they can extend their winning run to six matches. The 49ers will be focused on continuing where they left off against the Rams, particularly on defense and they could run up a big score in this one.
