49ers beat their rivals, yes it was a good day

The 49ers handled their business Sunday afternoon, defeating the Seattle Seahawks 19-17. It was a huge win, which always makes for a good day. Here are some of the notable performances from Sunday's win

The 49ers have a lot of work left to do, but that doesn't mean we can't enjoy Sunday's victory. The 49ers are likely plenty bruised after that win, but those bruises don't feel quite so awful when they're accompanied with a win.

With The Win...

  • The 49ers improved to 14-0-1 against NFC West opponents at Candlestick Park since 2009, giving them the 2nd best winning percentage (.967) against divisional opponents at home during that span.
