Redskins 2017 NFL Schedule Week 6 vs. 49ers: Time, TV Channel, Live Stream, How to Watch

The Redskins had a nice break during their bye week — five days off to be exact. But now it's time to get back to work with 12 straight weeks of football ahead of them, starting with the San Francisco 49ers during Week 6 of the 2017 NFL season. 

For a quick recap after the bye week, the Redskins are 2-2 — losing their opening game to the Philadelphia Eagles, beating the Los Angeles Rams and the Oakland Raiders and losing again to the Kansas City Chiefs. In the NFC East, Washington sits second behind the Eagles, who it plays again in Week 7. 

The Redskins are without Josh Norman, who fractured his rib and exited the game against the Chiefs. His injury is expected to keep him out for four weeks.

As the Redskins move forward into Week 6, they'll take on a couple familiar faces with the 49ers. Pierre Garçon with play against Washington for the first time with his new team, while former Redskins offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan is now San Francisco's head coach. 

The Washington-San Francisco matchup will also be a battle of former Michigan State quarterbacks, with Redskins' Kirk Cousins facing 49ers' Brian Hoyer, who was a senior when Cousins was a freshman.

Going into the Redskins vs. 49ers game, here is everything you need to know.

Nationals 2017 Postseason Game 3 NLDS vs. Cubs: Date, Time, TV Channel, How to Watch

Game 3 of the NLDS could have presented a do-or-die situation for the Washington Nationals. The team with so much promise heading into the postseason found its bats silenced by the Chicago Cubs, and they lost Game 1 of the series. 

Game 2 looked like it would be the same scenario in Washington, and the Nats would have to go to Chicago down 2-0 against the defending World Series champions. 

But thanks to Bryce Harper and Ryan Zimmerman, things took a turn for the Nats when their trailed the Cubs 3-1 in the eighth inning. First, Harper rocked a two-run homer to tie the game, and later that inning, Zimmerman stepped up and, with the help of some wind, hit a three-run homer to give the Nats a 6-3 lead and eventually the win.

Capitals' Alex Ovechkin named one of NHL's weekly stars after 7 goals in 2 games

Capitals' Alex Ovechkin named one of NHL's weekly stars after 7 goals in 2 games

Capitals fans shouldn’t be too surprised by this one: Alex Ovechkin was named one of the NHL’s Three Stars for last week after two spectacular season-opening games that combine for seven goals.

Ovechkin was named the First Star of the week, while Vegas Golden Knights goalie Marc-Andre Fleury and Philadelphia Flyers forward Wayne Simmonds were the second and third stars, respectively.

The Capitals opened the 2017-18 season against the Ottawa Senators on Thursday and scored a hat trick in the third period to help carry Washington to a 5-4 shootout win.

Then against the Montreal Canadiens on Saturday, the captain pulled through with a second hat trick — his 19th of the season, which ties Peter Bondra for the franchise record — plus one as the Caps won in dominating fashion, 6-1. His second hat trick of the season also happened in a single period, scoring three goals in the first and his fourth goal in the second period.

Ovechkin’s incredible start to the season also put him in the NHL record books. He is the first player in 100 years and only the fourth overall to post a hat trick in each of his team’s first two games of the season.

The Caps will take on the Tampa Bay Lightning next, with the puck set to drop Monday, October 9 at 7:30 p.m. ET.
