The headline for this post might be a little misleading, as there isn’t much to think about after the third quarter.
At this point, it’s a battle against the clock, as much as it is against the 49ers. The Redskins need a spark on offense, and they need to stop Frank Gore on defense.
The Redskins defense did a good job at keeping the 49ers at bay, and have done so for the entire game. The only touchdown that they have allowed came on an offensive turnover near the red zone. Other than that, they’ve held the 49ers to three field goals of 34, 45, and 52 yards. Unfortunately, kicker David Akers has delivered.
No matter how many times the Redskins offense appears to be on the verge of building some momentum, a key drop, penalty, or turnover seems to derail them. It’s difficult to say what the problem is, but the 49ers defense is stifling the Redskins offense in the second half, and it’s come from all directions. There is a sense of frustration that’s visible on the field, and the Redskins need big plays to shake the funk.
The Redskins need a turnover on defense or huge play on offense to get back, in this in the final frame. This game isn’t over yet, but it’s a race against time for the Burgundy and Gold.
San Francisco adds three to go up 16-3 with the final quarter to play.
