Carlos Hyde ran for a go-ahead 4-yard touchdown with 2:59 remaining, and the San Francisco 49ers barely squeaked by the lowly Washington Redskins with a 17-13 win Sunday that kept them in the thick of the playoff chase.
Redskins cornerback David Amerson will be a surprise scratch for Sunday’s game against the San Francisco 49ers, according to ESPN980 reporter Chris Russell and the team’s radio broadcast network.
Every Redskins game from here on out will put an inordinate amount of attention of quarterback Robert Griffin III. That’s only natural. The franchise quarterback hasn’t looked like one since 2012.
Pelosi: 49ers’ Ray McDonald Should Not Be Playing While Being Investigated For Allegedly Hitting Pregnant Fiancee
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said that San Francisco 49ers defensive end Ray McDonald shouldn’t play football while he’s being investigated for allegedly hitting his pregnant fiancee.
San Francisco 49ers linebacker Aldon Smith has been arrested at Los Angeles International Airport after authorities said he became belligerent during a security screening and threatened that he had a bomb.
Although they made a deeper playoff push a year ago, the 2013 season for the 49ers was far from a letdown. The team continued to improve each week, and heading into the off season know that they have a quarterback and defense that is going to make them contenders for years to come.
The NFC Championship Game came down to the 49ers offense verses the Seahawk defense, and Seattle’s number one ranked defense prevailed. San Francisco got the ball down six with the chance to pull off the upset but couldn’t make one more big play against their opponent.
The news of the Seahawks restricting sales to this Sundays games to certain zip code has been met with mixed results. While some might not like it, it’s legal, and more importantly will not give Seattle’s any additional advantage. The only thing this move really does is add to the 49er fan base’s hatred of their division rival.
The only two notable names that could miss this Sunday’s game between the 49ers and Panthers are Steve Smith and Carlos Rogers. While it’s unlikely that Smith will sit, it would not be a surprise to see Rogers not dressed. Regardless of what happens, both teams will be fine, and shouldn’t have to make any major adjustments.
When Panthers Coach Ron Rivera said that he felt the team under the most pressure this week will be San Francisco he was dead wrong. Not only is his team the one that HAS to win this game, if he really believes that the Panthers are playing with house money he is setting his team up for failure.
