TE George Kittle was the top target for Garoppolo and San Francisco as he hauled in 8 catches for 103 yards.

The San Francisco 49ers were very good on the defensive side of the ball against the Los Angeles Rams as they held them to 7 points and a total of 157 yards of offense. LB Kwon Alexander led the way for the San Francisco defense with 7 tackles and 1 TFL. DE Dee Ford was able to get into the Los Angeles backfield a handful of times as he contributed 1.5 sacks. CB Jimmie Ward had a productive game from the secondary as he pitched in 6 tackles and 2 pass deflections.

The Washington Redskins come into this matchup with a 1-5 record, and they will be looking to continue their success after winning their recent road game against the Miami Dolphins, 17-16. QB Case Keenum had a solid game through the air as he connected on 13 of his 25 pass attempts for 166 yards and 2 TDs. Rookie WR Terry McLaurin was the top target for Keenum and the Redskins as he hauled in 4 catches for 100 yards and 2 TDs.

The San Francisco 49ers have dominated the number on the road against the Washington Redskins as of recent as they have covered the spread in 4 of their last 5 meetings. The San Francisco 49ers have been the biggest surprise in football this season as they are 5-0 with an offense who ranks 3rd in points scored and a defense who ranks 2nd in points allowed. The Redskins were able to win their first game of the season against the worse team in football last week, but it was only a 1-point margin which leaves some concern. The 49ers should be able to destroy Case Keenum and an offense who ranks 30th in points scored as Nick Bosa, Dee Ford, and Fred Warner have essentially been unblockable this season. Final Score Prediction, San Francisco 49ers win and cover ATS 24-6.
