San Francisco 49ers
When the 49ers and Redskins meet this Sunday injuries will keep some players off the field, but none that should have a major impact on the game. Of the two teams, San Francisco is in far better shape though as Washington could see 4 of their starters sit out.
The 0-10 Oakland Raiders have six games remaining, and if they want to avoid the wrong kind of historic effort, the Silver & Black need to win at least one of those games. But it’s not looking like that is going to happen, all things considered. Somewhere, the ghost of Al Davis is cringing and shaking his fist at the mess his once-proud team has become.
If not for the play of their rookies, who knows where the 49ers would be this season. Chances are they would be farther back in the playoff hunt, if still even in striking distance.
The 49ers return home this week to take on the Washington Redskins. The Redskins are coming off a tough loss and despite a losing record is not a team that San Francisco can overlook.
The Kansas City Chiefs have been playing pretty well lately, as evidenced by their win over the Seattle Seahawks last weekend. Now, they get to the play the first of two games remaining on their schedule against the hapless Oakland Raiders, and if the Silver & Black want to win their first game in more than a year, they’ll need to be at their “best”—whatever that is.
The 49ers went on the road for the second straight week, and earned their second straight win. It took a last stand by the defense, but it was important for San Francisco to win this game, and they did due to the play of their defense and running game.
The 49ers and Giants have to game plan for some missing players this week, but none that they can’t overcome. There will be several game time decisions, but no big name is really in danger of sitting this one out, other than Patrick Willis.

It has been said that Aldon Smith’s suspension was not reduced because he didn’t comply with all the requirements of his suspension. But both he and the NFLPA disagree, and they appear to be the ones who are right.
The 49ers go on the road for the second straight week, but this time the opponent should not be quite as difficult. If they can play as well as they did a week ago the 49ers will beat the Giants this week and keep their winning streak intact.
