Frank Gore wants losing streak behind him

SANTA CLARA — Frank Gore has gone through his share of losing streaks in nine seasons with the 49ers, and their lastest one has him scratching his head.

"I'm very surprised we lost the last two like that: close games," Gore said Wednesday.

The 49ers (6-4) are coming off losses to the Carolina Panthers (10-9) and New Orleans Saints (23-20). Next up is a Monday night game against the host Washington Redskins (3-7).

"I know Monday night, Washington is going to be pumped, and we're trying to get back on track to where we want to be, and that's the playoffs," Gore added.

The 49ers offense ranks 29th overall in terms of yards per game, and although they have the fifth-best rushing attack, the pass offense still ranks last for a third straight week.

Left guard Mike Iupati likely will miss Monday night's game because of a sprained left knee.

"Mike's a great player, a Pro Bowl player and helps the run game a lot," Gore said. "But Snyder is a vet and it will be fine."
