Carlos Hyde ran for a go-ahead 4-yard touchdown with 2:59 remaining, and the San Francisco 49ers barely squeaked by the lowly Washington Redskins with a 17-13 win Sunday that kept them in the thick of the playoff chase.
There is no reason for the 49ers to panic despite their 4-4 record. There is a big difference between 5-4 and 4-5 so a win this week should silence the panic talks. A loss though will certainly warrant a raise in concern.

“I will be wearing this to support not only my package but also the #SFGiants! Go Giants!!”
One team has waited decades to return to the postseason, the other looked World Series-bound before stumbling and barely eking into the playoffs on the final day. Just how long in the making is this rematch? The teams last played in 1981.
