The 49ers did it! They snapped a ten-game losing streak, beating the Seahawks 26-23 in overtime. Nick Mullens completed 20 of 29 passes for 275 yards and a touchdown. Dante Pettis led the team with five receptions for 83 yards. DeForest Buckner was a mauler on defense, leading the team with 11 tackles (four for a loss), two sacks, and three quarterback hits. The 49ers improve to 4-10 with the win.
DeForest Buckner reaches big sack mark
49ers defensive tackle DeForest Buckner sacked Russell Wilson in the third quarter, his tenth sack of the season. He is the first 49ers player to get double digit sacks since Aldon Smith did it in 2012. Not too shabby. Give it a watch.
Back and forth scoring
The 49ers head into halftime leading the Seahawks 17-13. The 49ers added a second touchdown on a Garrett Celek 41-yard touchdown catch and run. The Seahawks responded with another Doug Baldwin touchdown. The 49ers added a field goal to close out the half.
Two quick scores early
The Seahawks forced a 49ers punt early and then marched down the field behind Chris Carson. Russell Wilson capped the drive when he connected with Doug Baldwin in the end zone to give Seattle a 6-0 lead. The 49ers responded quickly, however, when Richie James took the ensuing kickoff back for a touchdown. The 49ers lead 7-6.
The 49ers welcome back Matt Breida after missing a week with a sprained ankle. D.J. Reed will get his second straight start at nickel back, while Antone Exum and Marcell Harris will start at free and strong safety, respectively. The team will also have wide receivers Marquise Goodwin and Dante Pettis this week, after both were listed as questionable on the final injury report.
49ers inactives: CB K’Waun Williams, S Jaquiski Tartt, RB Alfred Morris, S Tyree Robinson, OL Erik Magnuson, OL Shon Coleman, DL Sheldon Day
Seahawks inactives: RB Rashaad Penny, SS Maurice Alexander, CB Kalan Reed, LB K.J. Wright, C Joey Hunt, OG D.J. Fluker, DT Nazair Jones
There are only three more weeks of football left for the San Francisco 49ers and they now look to finish the series against the Seattle Seahawks. They met the Seahawks just two weeks ago in CenturyLink Field and were destroyed 43-16. Despite the score, they showed they have the ability to beat the Seahawks; quarterback Nick Mullens threw for 400 yards and Jeff Wilson had a solid performance in place of the injured Matt Breida. This will be an afternoon game kicking off at 1:05 P.M. The game will air on FOX and you can see who gets it by looking at our broadcast map. Andrew Catalon and James Lofton will be calling the game.
The one thing the 49ers struggled with was turnovers. The offense would give the Seahawks great field position with turnovers and the 49ers defense allowed the running game to have their way. The 49ers are no longer in playoff contention but the Seahawks are and they need every win they can get.
The Seahawks are coming off an impressive win over the Minnesota Vikings where the defense clamped down on Kirk Cousins and allowed only 182 yards. The Seahawks defense also only allowed 58 yards rushing as well. They are getting momentum coming to Levi’s Stadium, but it should be noted last weeks game was in Seattle. And we all know the difference home/away is for that team.
For Week 15, the Seahawks will be without safety Maurice Alexander (concussion), running back Rashaad Penny (knee), and linebacker K.J. Wright (knee). Guard D.J. Fluker (hamstring) is doubtful.
The 49ers meanwhile will be without safety Jaquiski Tartt (Shoulder). Defensive end Cassius Marsh (concussion), linebacker Mark Nzeocha (groin), and cornerback K’Waun Williams (knee) are questionable.
