Here are some of the social highlights from the Redskins' 27-6 loss to the 49ers:

The weather may have been cold, but the players didn't waste any time getting warmed up on Twitter:

Who did you think would have the biggest impact Monday night?

Late in the 1st quarter, Kaepernick looked Anquan Boldin's way two plays in a row. The second time was a 19-yard touchdown strike to put the 49ers up 7-0:

Just as the Redskins offense began to show signs of life with back-to-back first downs, Griffin threw a pick to Donte Whitner. It was Griffin's 11th interception of the year:

Early on in the 2nd quarter, Colin Kaepernick was stopped short of a first down with a hard hit from Brandon Meriweather, but a 29-yard Phil Dawson's made it 10-0 Niners:

Midway through the 2nd quarter the Redskins finally found their way to the scoreboard with a 36-yard Kai Forbath field goal to cut the 49ers' lead to 10-3:

Some questionable clock management inside the 2-minute warning didn't help the Redskins get much done once they found the red zone. With no timeouts left and the clock running down on 4th down, the special teams unit hustled out with just enough time for Kai Forbath to kick a 35-yard field goal to make it 10-6 Niners at the half:

The Redskins created a huge opportunity for themselves early in the 2nd half when they forced a fumble from Vernon Davis and Brandon Meriweather recovered near midfield:

With 9:25 to go in the 3rd, Kaepernick rolled out to his right and found Boldin in the end zone (again) to give the 49ers a 17-6 lead:

Late in the 3rd quarter on a 2nd & goal from the 1, Vernon Davis was left completely uncovered and made an easy touchdown catch to put San Francisco up 24-6:

With 9:01 left to play, Phil Dawson was good from 49 out extended the 49er lead to 21 points:

That about did it for the Redskins. Several sacks, punts, and frustrated arm flails later, the clock mercifully ticked down to zero and put an end to the 27-6 beatdown:

The players were all but silent about the rout on Twitter, but NT Chris Baker spoke up:
