Here are the biggest moments from the Washington Redskins’ 9-0 loss to the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday at FedEx Field. Scroll down to see a full recap of the game.

Dustin Hopkins misses a field goal (6:50 first quarter): The Redskins marched 63 yards on 10 consecutive running plays, including eight handoffs to Adrian Peterson, to open the game before Steven Sims Jr. caught a shovel pass and was tackled for a loss on third down in the red zone. Dustin Hopkins came on to attempt a 39-yard field goal to give Washington the lead but pushed the kick wide right in rainy and windy conditions.

Robbie Gould misses a field goal (10:56 second quarter): San Francisco’s second possession, a 13-play drive that lasted more than six minutes, culminated in a 45-yard field goal attempt by Robbie Gould after Matt Ioannidis and Ryan Kerrigan combined to sack Jimmy Garoppolo on third down. Gould’s kick had less of a chance than Hopkins’s effort, sailing wide to the left to keep the game scoreless.

Adrian Peterson stuffed on fourth down (4:02 second quarter): Washington moved the ball effectively on its ensuing drive, and Coach Bill Callahan left his offense on the field after Peterson was stopped a foot short of the marker on third and short. Rather than attempting a quarterback sneak with Case Keenum, the Redskins again gave the ball to Peterson, who was tackled for a loss of one by Jullian Taylor and Ronald Blair. The 49ers took over on downs at their 29-yard line.

Troy Apke makes an interception (12:41 third quarter): After a scoreless first half, San Francisco went to the air on its opening drive of the third quarter and moved quickly into Redskins territory. On fourth and four from the Washington 36-yard line, Garoppolo fired a pass down the left sideline that was intended for Dante Pettis but intercepted by Redskins safety Troy Apke. The second-year pro out of Penn State, who entered the game moments earlier in place of the injured Montae Nicholson, returned his first career interception to the Redskins’ 47-yard line.

49ers finally hit a big play (8:48 third quarter): It seemed it was only a matter of time before the league’s third-ranked offense got going, and it happened midway through the third quarter. On third and three from the San Francisco 30, Garoppolo found wide receiver Richie James Jr. wide open in the middle of the field. James turned the easy completion into a 40-yard gain. Four plays later, Gould’s 28-yard field goal gave the 49ers the only points they would need.

Adrian Peterson commits a costly fumble (1:20 third quarter): The Redskins threatened to answer on their next possession, thanks to a roughing-the-passer penalty on Solomon Thomas that extended the drive. One play after Keenum connected with a sliding Trey Quinn for a 19-yard completion to the San Francisco 29-yard line, 49ers linebacker Kwon Alexander knocked the ball out of Peterson’s grasp as the running back was being dragged to the ground. Taylor recovered for San Francisco, ending Washington’s last scoring threat.

San Francisco converts on fourth-and-1 (12:27 fourth quarter): Leading 3-0 early in the fourth quarter, the 49ers went for it on fourth and one from the Washington 35. San Francisco called a play-action pass to backup tight end Ross Dwelley in the flat. Dwelley, who had a drop in the first half, made a diving catch for the first down, and the 49ers added to their lead with a 22-yard field goal five plays later.

George Kittle picks up a key first down (5:15 fourth quarter): Kittle had a quiet day by his standards, with only three catches for 38 yards, but one of the Pro Bowl tight end’s grabs came on third down early in San Francisco’s final drive, allowing the 49ers to burn more time off the clock before kicking a field goal that iced the game.

Final: 49ers 9, Redskins 0

  • In windy and rainy conditions at FedEx Field, the Redskins fell to 1-6 after being shut out for the first time since Week 17 of last season.
  • San Francisco quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo was only 3 for 10 for 10 yards at halftime. He finished 12 for 21 for 151 yards and one interception.
  • Case Keenum completed 9 of 13 passes for 77 yards for the Redskins, who managed only 154 yards of total offense.
  • Adrian Peterson had 20 carries for 81 yards, but also committed a costly fumble in the third quarter with the Redskins driving for a potential go-ahead score.
  • San Francisco improved to 6-0 for the first time since 1990.

Fourth Quarter

San Francisco burns clock, takes a two-score lead: After the Redskins went three-and-out, the 49ers iced the game with a 10-play drive that took more than six minutes off the clock. With Washington out of timeouts, San Francisco used its first with 27 seconds to play before Robbie Gould drilled a 29-yard field goal. (49ers 9, Redskins 0, 0:23 Fourth Quarter)

49ers add a second field goal: On fourth-and-1 from the Washington 35-yard line, Jimmy Garoppolo completed a pass in the flat to Ross Dwelley, who made a diving catch for the first down. On the next play, Garoppolo found Kendrick Bourne for a 26-yard completion inside the Redskins’ 10. The Washington defense forced San Francisco to settle for a short field goal by Robbie Gould. (49ers 6, Redskins 0, 9:03 Fourth Quarter)

Third Quarter

Adrian Peterson commits a costly fumble: A roughing-the-passer penalty on Solomon Thomas, who made helmet-to-helmet contact with Case Keenum on a third-down incompletion early in the drive, gave Washington a fresh set of downs. The Redskins appeared poise to capitalize, with Keenum completing a 19-yard pass to Trey Quinn four plays later. On Washington’s next play from the San Francisco 29, Kwon Alexander forced a fumble by Adrian Peterson that was recovered by the 49ers’ Jullian Taylor. (49ers 3, Redskins 0, 1:20 Third Quarter)

49ers get on the board first with a field goal: On third-and-3 from the San Francisco 30-yard line, Jimmy Garoppolo found Richie James Jr. wide open in the middle of the field for a first-down completion that James turned into a gain of 40 yards. Four plays later, Garoppolo was tackled for no gain on a third down scramble, leading to a 28-yard field goal attempt by Robbie Gould that split the uprights. (49ers 3, Redskins 0, 5:28 Third Quarter)

San Francisco throws an interception: Jimmy Garoppolo completed a 28-yard pass to Kendrick Bourne on the 49ers’ second play from scrimmage in the third quarter. Redskins safety Montae Nicholson was injured on the play and was listed as questionable to return with an ankle injury. Five plays later, on fourth-and-5 from the Redskins’ 36, Garoppolo was intercepted by Troy Apke, who entered the game moments earlier in place of the injured Nicholson and returned the ball to the Washington 47. (Redskins 0, 49ers 0, 12:30 Third Quarter)

Halftime: Redskins 0, 49ers 0

The Redskins outgained the 49ers 118 to 68 in the first half, but both teams missed a field goal in rainy conditions that left players slipping and sliding all over the field.

Second Quarter

First half ends with teams tied 0-0: The 49ers forced a three-and-out and used a pair of timeouts to preserve time on the clock for a potential score before halftime. After Tress Way’s 56-yard punt from deep in his own territory backed the 49ers up to their own 34-yard line, San Francisco advanced to the Washington 49 before Montez Sweat and Ryan Kerrigan combined to sack Jimmy Garoppolo. (Redskins 0, 49ers 0, End of Second Quarter)

Washington’s defense forces a punt: The Redskins have limited the 49ers to 59 total yards on 23 plays in the first half. San Francisco quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo is 2 for 8 for nine yards after throwing a pair of incompletions on the 49ers’ latest stalled drive. (Redskins 0, 49ers 0, 1:50 Second Quarter)

Redskins turn the ball over on downs: A false start by wide receiver Kelvin Harmon and a holding penalty on Brandon Scherff on consecutive snaps set up second-and-23, but the Redskins moved the chains with an 11-yard completion to Trey Quinn and an 18-yard catch-and-run by Wendell Smallwood. After Adrian Peterson was stopped inches short of picking up another first down later in the drive, Redskins Coach Bill Callahan left his offense on the field. Ronald Blair and Jullian Taylor combined to tackle Peterson in the backfield on Washington’s next play, giving the 49ers the ball at the San Francisco 29-yard line. (Redskins 0, 49ers 0, 4:02 Second Quarter)

San Francisco misses a field goal: The teams have traded missed field goals in the slop after Robbie Gould’s 45-yard attempt on the 49ers’ second possession sailed wide left. Gould’s miss capped a 13-play drive that lasted more than six minutes. Ryan Kerrigan and Matt Ioannidis combined to sack Jimmy Garoppolo for a loss of six on the third-down play that preceded San Francisco’s field goal attempt, after Garoppolo fumbled the slick ball. (Redskins 0, 49ers 0, 10:56 Second Quarter)

First Quarter

Redskins go three-and-out: After limiting San Francisco to one first down on its opening possession, Washington’s offense went nowhere on its second drive. Redskins quarterback Case Keenum and his counterpart, Jimmy Garoppolo, are a combined 3 for 6 for 12 yards, as both teams are learning heavily on the run game in the rain. (Redskins 0, 49ers 0, 1:58 First Quarter)

Redskins’ first drive ends with a missed field goal: The 49ers won the loss and elected to defer, giving the Redskins the ball first. With heavy rain falling, Washington opened the game with 10 straight run plays, including nine handoffs to running back Adrian Peterson. On third-and-five from the 49ers’ 18-yard line, wide receiver Steven Sims Jr. was tackled for a loss on a shovel pass. Dustin Hopkins pushed his ensuing 39-yard field goal attempt wide right and Washington’s opening possession, which lasted more than eight minutes, failed to produce any points. (Redskins 0, 49ers 0, 6:46 First Quarter)

Pregame updates

More bad news for the Redskins on the injury front: Cornerback Josh Norman, who was listed as questionable all week with hand and thigh injuries, will not play against the 49ers. The pregame list of inactives didn’t feature any surprises.

It’s been raining at FedEx Field all morning, so footing could be an issue for both teams.
