You couldn’t ask for an uglier game. Playing on field that was more mud than grass, the 49ers and the Redskins ran the ball at each other 30-plus times each, but it was the 49ers defense, which, yet again, was superb, that led the way in a 9-0 win.
DeForest Buckner had six tackles and both Arik Armstead (three tackles, one for a loss) and Ford (two tackles) both notched sacks. The one Redskins turnover came when Kwon Alexander punched out a fumble from Adrian Peterson, which was recovered by Jullian Taylor, who was tremendous in his first ime being active since Week 2. In addition to the fumble recovery, Taylor had a key fourth down stop on Peterson earlier in the game.
