49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan on bouncing back against the Commanders:

"I was real proud of the guys today, because it was a tough week," said head coach Kyle Shanahan. "I think it was more about the emotions of last week, whenever you have a big game like that and it's just it's so exciting to play on Christmas in front of everyone, those two teams with their records, it's just the emotions for everybody. It was huge and you're tired from that. It takes a while to get everyone back going again, not just physically, but also mentally... I talked to the players a lot about it but you never know how they're going to be until gameday. I was just pumped that they went out, didn't worry about anything else and found a way to win today."
