LANDOVER, MD (11/26/13)- The Washington Redskins' struggles continued Nov. 25 at FedEx Field as the San Francisco 49ers defeated the Redskins, 27-6.

“That was the toughest defense we’ve gone against this year,” Redskins Coach Mike Shanahan said. “They did an excellent job of not letting us get into a rhythm to run the ball or throw the ball.”

Washington was limited to 190 net yards for the game, 100 rushing and only 90 yards passing. This also marked the first time in Robert Griffin III’s college and professional career that his offense did not score a touchdown.

“Yes, it’s frustrating. We’re frustrated. Everyone’s tired of losing – us, fans, the media, everybody," Griffin said. “You have to have the right guys in the huddle in there with you and I know they’ll keep fighting with me and I’ll fight with those guys any day. It’s frustrating, but we have to move on to the next one.”

"We are very excited about reviving the Game of the Week as Clarke hosts their third consecutive playoff game at the Felt." Murphy said.

The Clarke County Sports Game of the Week was produced from 2007-2011 and featured game highlights and post game interviews with a studio wrap up. Clarke County home games and a variety of games in the area when Clarke was on the road was the format.

Other media obligations forced Clarke County Sports to cancel the production starting in the 2012 season. As things have worked out, Clarke County Sports has been present at the last two games and will be at the Felt on Saturday for the game.
