John Skelton — the Sports Section's Official Favorite Athlete for reasons explained here — made his second straight start last night. In Week 7, he was sacked seven times in a loss to the Vikings, and last night, he was sacked four more times in a 24-3 loss to San Francisco. His numbers: 290 yards on 32-52 passing, no touchdowns, and an interception. (Alex Smith, meanwhile, was nearly flawless for the 49ers.) This concludes your weekly John Skelton update.
