For me this game boils down to which QB has the better team around him. Both Kaepernick and RG3 are virtually identical QBs with a strong dual threat, option style offence and both have been struggling as of late.
Looking at their recent performances both have struggled, however Kaepernick has struggled against genuinely good teams in New Orleans and Carolina while RG3 has struggled with a middle of the road team in Philly and a pretty bad team in Minnesota.
The 49rs have the clear edge here in my mind. Their defense is healthy and they are starting to look more like the 49rs that went all the way to the superbowl last year.
The projected weather at Fedex Field is a balmy 30 Degrees with a 7mph wind so the wind doesn't look to be a factor, the cold may make holding onto the ball a little difficult.
Vegas is posting a whopping 94% of the Money on San Fran tonight... which is always cause for concern... that being said it doesn't change the fact that San Fran is a better team and should be able to pull this one out. I expect another strong defensive performance and look for San Fran to hold Washington to UNDER 20 points.
I am going with 2 units on San Fran -5
I don't usually throw out actual numbers but for some reason I am going to today with a projected final score of 27-16.
