Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson runs with the ball in Monday's win over the Redskins
SAN FRANCISCO 49ERS
Last time out: 49ers 22, Chiefs 17
Record: 3-2 overall, 0-1 in division
Snapshot: Phil Dawson kicked five field goals, including the go-ahead boot from 27 yards out with 8:42 remaining as San Francisco outlasted the Chiefs. Running back Frank Gore finished with 18 carries for 107 yards.
Notable: The 49ers trailed by a point in the fourth quarter when they ran a fake punt on 4th-and-1 from their 29. Safety Craig Dahl took the snap and rushed three yards for the first down. The trickery led to Dawson's go-ahead field goal. Kansas City quarterback Alex Smith was 17-of-31 for 175 yards with two touchdowns and an interception in the matchup against his former team.
Quotable: Dahl on picking up the first down on the fake punt, via 49ers.com: "Had we not gotten it, it would have been almost disastrous for our team. You just have to execute in pressure situations like that and make a big play for the team when we needed one."
Key number: 9. The total yards for the Chiefs in the fourth quarter, on a pass from Smith to wide receiver Dwayne Bowe.
Next up: The 49ers travel to face the Rams in Week 6
Last time out: Seahawks 27, Redskins 17
Snapshot: Ill-timed penalties on Seattle let Washington hang around, as the Redskins pulled to within 24-17 on a touchdown pass from Kirk Cousins to Andre Roberts with 3:35 remaining in the fourth quarter. The Seahawks responded with an 8-play, 55-yard drive and kicker Steven Hauschka iced the win with a 43-yard field goal with 21 seconds remaining.
Notable: Seattle quarterback Russell Wilson was 18-of-24 for 201 yards and two touchdowns through the air and added 11 carries for 122 yards and a score on the ground. Wilson's rushing total was the most in the history of Monday Night Football.
Quotable: Wide receiver Percy Harvin, who had three touchdowns called back by penalty: "Well, the first one I was cool with. I was like, 'OK.' Then the second one happened, I was like, 'Wow.' And then the third one happened I just flipped my hands down. I couldn't believe it."
Key number: 164. The number of scramble yards by Wilson this season, per ESPN Stats and Information, the most in the NFL.
Next up: The Seahawks host the Cowboys in Week 6
ST. LOUIS RAMS
Last time out: Eagles 34, Rams 28
Snapshot: The Rams cut a 34-7 deficit to six and had the ball with a chance to win, but their final drive stalled at their 47 when quarterback Austin Davis threw incomplete on 4th-and-13. Davis finished with 375 yards passing and three touchdowns, with Brian Quick catching five of those balls for 87 yards and a score.
Notable: The Eagles offense is still having trouble, but the defense and special teams continue to do the trick. Chris Maragos returned a block 10 yards for a touchdown and Cedric Thornton recovered a fumble in the end zone to help pit Philadelphia to its big lead.
Quotable: Davis to StLouisRams.com on the state of the team: "The record is what it is, but we're a couple plays here and there from being where we want to be. We've got to stay the course and we've got to find a way to eliminate mistakes and make plays when the game is on the line. I think we're heading in the right direction. This is a tough one, though."
Key number: 702. Passing yards for Davis in the past two games, although the Rams have lost them both.
Next up: The Rams host the 49ers in Week 6
THIS WEEK'S OPPONENT: WASHINGTON REDSKINS
Last time out: Seahawks 27, Redskins 17
Snapshot: The Redskins fell into a 17-0 hole, and while they clawed to within a touchdown on two occasions in the second half, they couldn't get over the hump. Quarterback Kirk Cousins finished 21-of-36 for 283 yards and two touchdowns but running back Alfred Morris had only 29 yards on 13 carries.
Notable: Wide receiver DeSean Jackson had five catches for 157 yards, including a 60-yard touchdown reception. It was his 14th receiving touchdown of 50 yards or more in the NFL. Jackson also hauled in a 57-yard pass to set up a field goal.
Quotable: Coach Jay Gruden on his team's struggles: "Overall, as a group offensively, our running game's not quite good enough. Obviously our deep passing game's not quite good enough. We're not quite good enough anywhere."
Injury update: Starting quarterback Robert Griffin III has missed the past three games with a dislocated left ankle and won't play against the Cardinals. Tight end Jordan Reed has played only one game this year because of a hamstring injury but could return Sunday.
