The San Francisco 49ers and Washington Redskins meet Sunday in NFL action at FedEx Field.
The San Francisco 49ers look for their fourth road victory to build on their 5-0 start to the NFL season. The San Francisco 49ers have split their last six road games. Jimmy Garoppolo is completing 69.9 percent of his passes for 1,163 yards, seven touchdowns and five interceptions. Garoppolo has 11 touchdown passes in his last seven games. George Kittle and Marquise Goodwin have combined for 519 receiving yards and two touchdowns while Deebo Samuel has 15 receptions. The San Francisco 49ers ground game is averaging 179.8 yards per contest, and Matt Breida leads the way with 376 yards and one touchdown. Defensively, San Francisco is allowing 12.8 points and 237.4 yards per game. Fred Warner leads the San Francisco 49ers with 31 tackles, Dee Ford has 3.5 sacks and Richard Sherman has two interceptions.
The Washington Redskins have a chance to win back-to-back games for the first time since October of last year. The Washington Redskins have lost each of their last seven home games. Case Keenum is completing 65.6 percent of his passes for 1,136 yards, nine touchdowns and four interceptions. Keenum has two or more touchdown passes in four of his five games. Terry McLaurin and Chris Thompson have combined for 684 receiving yards and five touchdowns while Paul Richardson has 20 receptions. The Washington Redskins ground game is averaging 81.5 yards per contest, and Adrian Peterson leads the way with 226 yards and one touchdown. Defensively, Washington is allowing 27.8 points and 385 yards per game. Landon Collins leads the Washington Redskins with 55 tackles, Jonathan Allen has three sacks and Quinton Dunbar has three interceptions.
The 49ers are 4-10 ATS in their last 14 vs. NFC, 5-11 ATS in their last 16 games in October and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Redskins are 1-7 ATS in their last 8 vs. NFC, 0-5 ATS in their last 5 home games and 0-5 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The 49ers are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 meetings in Washington and 3-1-1 ATS in their last 5 meetings. The under is 4-1 in 49ers last 5 games overall. The over is 5-2 in Redskins last 7 home games.
The San Francisco 49ers have failed to cover six of their last 10 games as a double-digit favorite. The Washington Redskins have covered six of their last nine games as a double-digit underdog. Four of the 49ers five victories this season have been decided by double digits, and they're the second-best defense in the league, which includes allowing just 10 points in their last two games since their bye week. The Washington Redskins nearly lost to the Miami Dolphins last week, and they've lost their three home games this season by an average of 17.3 points. I have to eat the chalk with the 49ers.
