Week 12: San Francisco 49ers 27, Washington Redskins 6- Post Game Thoughts

It was an ugly night for the Redskins as they lose in blowout fashion at home to the 49ers on Monday Night Football.  Once again, Washington struggled to throw the ball.  Robert Griffin III had almost nowhere to go with the ball for a majority of the game, as most of his completions came on quick screens to his wide receivers.  The absence of tight end Jordan Reed also hurt the team’s cause, because the ‘Skins were unable to involve any of their other tight ends into the game plan.  Meanwhile, San Francisco played a brilliant game.  They got constant pressure on RGIII (a lot of it coming from Aldon Smith, who appears to be returning to 2012 form).  Also, Colin Kaepernick did not look like a dud throwing the ball.  He slung the rock for three touchdowns and was not intercepted.  The Niners didn’t mount a ton of offense on the ground, but they did stay dedicated to pounding Washington with the rock, which was important for their game plan.  Simply put, the Redskins were embarrassed by the 49ers defense on this night.  San Fran got back to playing their style of football and they looked good in the process.  The loss for Washington pretty much eliminates any playoff hopes that remained for this team.  They will try and take their season-long frustrations out on a disappointing Giant team at hom next Sunday night while the 49ers host the Rams in an important NFC West divisional match-up.
