Redskins vs. 49ers Preview

Despite a minus eight in turnover differential, the Redskins hold on to the ball almost six minutes longer per game than their opponents (32:55 vs. 27:05). Washington is fifth in the NFL in time of possession.

The 49ers have given the ball away seventeen times--seven giveaways more than the Redskins--and have held the ball eleven minutes less than their opponents per game (24:23 vs. 35:47). San Francisco is dead last in the NFL in time of possession.

The Redskins convert 46.2% of their third downs and sustain drives. They are third in the NFL in this category.

The 49ers convert 29.8% of their third downs. That is, they punt 70% of the time that they fail to get ten yards in the first two downs. They are thirtieth in the NFL in this category.

The only question in this game is: How many points can the 49ers score in the ten or so minutes that they will possess the ball?

Time of Possession:
Redskins: 45:00
49ers: 15:00

Redskins 42
49ers 0
