Preview

The San Francisco 49ers hit the road and will visit the Washington Commanders on Thursday Night at the Lumen Field. These teams faced each other on Week 2 in San Francisco where the 49ers dominated and beat the Commanders 27-7.

 

Washington Commanders

The Commanders get here with 7-5-1 record after tying 20-20 vs Giants two weeks ago. Washington gained 411 yards compared to New York's 316. Heinicke completed 27 of 41 passes for 275 yards and two touchdowns. Brian Robinson Jr. carried for 96 yards on 21 attempts. McLaurin led the Commanders with 105 yards on eight catches.

The defense ranks 10th in the league, allowing 235 passing yards per game and 124 rushing yards while allowing 19 points per game.

 

San Francisco 49ers

The 49ers have won 6 games in a row and get here with a 9-4 record. They are 3-3 on the road ranking 1st in the NFC West. They absoultely dominated the Bucs last week holding them to only 7 points in the game. Purdy threw two touchdown passes and ran for another score. McCaffrey, who ran for 119 yards, added a TD on the ground with a 38-yard run. 

The Defense has been pretty tough allowing only 15 points per game, 230 pass yards and 72 rushing yards. San Francisco linebacker Dre Greenlaw is garnering attention for routinely making big plays. After recording 15 tackles and an interception last week against Tampa Bay

Prediction

With six straight victories, the longest current streak in the league, San Francisco is the hottest club in the NFL. The 49ers have defeated opponents by double digits in each of their last four contests, including last week's 35-7 thrashing of Tampa Bay. The Commanders have been up and down this season and they have lost 3 of their last 4 games. Their main problem is the defense who's allowing over 25 points per game while the 49ers have the #1 defense in the NFL. The only way I can see this 49ers offense struggling is against a tough defense which the Commanders don't have so I'm going with the niners to win this game. 

PICK: 49ers -6.5 (-110)
