This NFC battle between two of the most dysfunctional teams in the NFL will take the stage on Sunday afternoon when RGIII, DeSean Jackson and Washington football team take on Colin Kaepernick, Frank Gore and the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday at 4:25 PM ET at Levi’s Stadium.
With Oakland’s win last night and Jacksonville’s youth movement, many believe that the Washington NFL franchise might be the worst team in the league. Will head coach Jay Gruden stick with RGIII if he continues to struggle?
