The San Francisco 49ers are taking on the Washington Redskins on Monday Night Football. The 49ers were the first two score with a touchdown pass from quarterback Colin Kaepernick to wide receiver Anquan Boldin, it was a 19-yard reception.

In the first quarter, Boldin has two catches for 23 yards, including that touchdown. Kaepernick has gotten off to a fast start as well. He has completed six of nine passes for 118 yards and has a first quarter passer rating of 146.8.

Before the game the Redskins spoke about the need to control Kaepernick.

“Obviously his speed and his athletic ability,” veteran Kedric Golston said about his strengths. “When he decides to tuck the ball and run, you’re talking about most quarterbacks might get a 10-, 15-yard gain.

“With him it’s a touchdown.

“That’s the type of athlete he is. He’s explosive and he can make all the throws. You have to understand what his tendencies are, what he likes to run, where he likes to go when he runs and build the gameplan around that in order to stop him.”
