MNF Live Thread: 49ers @ Redskins Edition

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

The 49ers travel to Landover Maryland this evening to take on the Redskins. Join us here to discuss this game or the heartbreak of yesterday.

Last season Robert Griffin III and Colin Kaepernick burst on to the scene to become two of 2012's golden boys in the NFL but have struggled in their second season as full time starters. Last year the two quarterback's also led their respective teams to a division title but twelve games in to the season and the Redskins find themselves in last place of the NFC East while the 49ers are currently in third place in the NFC West. Both teams are also coming off a two game losing streak.

While struggling quarterbacks have caused both offenses to falter what little success the two teams has had on offense has come via their rushing attacks. The Redskins lead the NFL in rushing at 155.2 yards per game while the 49ers are 5th in the league with 141 yards per game. Alfred Morris leads Washington in rushing with 918 yards while the 49ers leader as usual is former University of Miami standout Frank Gore with 748 yards. The 49ers are still in a position to earn a playoff spot while the Redskins, despite being in an otherwise horrible division, are at this point relegated to playing for pride.
