Is there any hope for the Redskins? Well … maybe. But they’ll have to win each of their remaining six games just to have a chance. And, of course, that improbable run must begin Monday night against the 49ers.
Here are our three keys to the game: 
1st down—Colin Kaepernick isn’t putting up the staggering stats he posted a season ago. But he’s still the 49ers’ biggest threat and the one player the Redskins must shut down if they expect to have a shot. The question is which Kaepernick are they going to get? The one who skewered Aaron Rodgers and the Packers in Week 1? Or the one who struggled to complete half of his pass attempts in losses the Panthers and Saints the past two weeks? “He’ll adjust because he’s got a lot of talent,” Coach Mike Shanahan said. “He’s got speed. It looks like he’s a hell of a competitor …but there’s a learning curve and sometimes it takes time.”
