On the 49ers podcast with J Hawkes:

#1 Joe, the loss to Team Washington last Sunday in Arizona one of the tougher loses for San Francisco this season. For 49ers quarterback Nick Mullens 260 yards, one touchdown, one interception.

#2 Mullens just couldn’t muster any offense in the second and third quarters where the 49ers were shut out.

#3 Washington used three quarterbacks to defeat the 49ers, starting with Alex Smith 57 yards and an interception, Dwayne Haskins 51 yards and no touchdowns, and Isaiah Wright who just threw an incomplete pass.

#4 Joe inspite of Mullens struggles 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan is sticking with him for Sunday’s game as the starting quarterback against the Dallas Cowboys. Mullens has turned the ball over 12 times so far this season.

#5 The 49ers and Cowboys kickoff for a Sunday morning start rather than the originally scheduled Sunday Night prime time game. The change was made after the Cowboys and the 49ers suffered recent loses, were eliminated from  the playoffs, and neither starting quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo 49ers and Dak Prescott Cowboys will be returning.
