Quick Take: Redskins (8-7) at 49ers (6-9)

Last meeting
Clinton Portis rushed for three touchdowns as the Redskins trounced the visiting 49ers, 52-17, in 2005.

The Redskins have won three of the past four matchups, but the 49ers own a 16-10-1 overall series advantage, including the playoffs. See a breakdown of the last five meetings.

Last week
Washington was eliminated from playoff contention earlier in the day, but it still snapped a three-game losing skid by beating rival Philadelphia, 10-3. ... After trailing the entire game, San Francisco scored on a desperation pass in the closing minutes and stunned St. Louis, 17-16.

Keep your eye on ...
Portis wearing down: During the first half of the season, when the Redskins were 6-2, Portis was an MVP candidate. A series of injuries have derailed the star rusher in recent weeks, however, and his production has plummeted. He will try to return to his early-season form against a 49ers defense ranked 15th against the run.
