NFL: Seattle Seahawks at San Francisco 49ers Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

The NFL’s best rivalry this decade resumed on Monday Night Football and what a show both teams put on. In the end, the 49ers lost their unbeaten streak to start the season losing 27-24 to the Seattle Seahawks in overtime. They fell to 8-1, but still have the best record in the NFC. They will be facing some of the best teams in the NFL in the next few weeks, so it is crucial that they get healthy and learn from their mistakes quickly.

After jumping to a quick 10-0 lead on the 1st 2 drives to start the game, the 49ers offense stalled until the 4th quarter. The offensive line struggled to block for Jimmy Garoppolo and Seattle was able to sack him 5 times and force 2 fumbles, with one ending in a touchdown. Joe Staley and Mike McGlinchey made their returns from injury, but Jadeveon Clowney and Seattle’s front completely overwhelmed them. Those pressures had Jimmy a little jumpy in the pocket all night long. His receivers also did him no favors by consistently dropping passes; one leading directly to an interception and Seattle’s first offensive touchdown.

The 49ers’ defense on the other hand were absolute stars. They held MVP candidate Russell Wilson and the Seattle offense to 84 yards in the 1st half. The 2 touchdowns that they allowed came directly off the offense’s turnovers that gave Seattle a very short field. They also got the 49ers back in the game when Fred Warner punched the ball out of Germain Ifedi’s hands on a bizarre play and DeForest picked up the fumble for a touchdown. They also gave the team a chance to win in overtime when Dre Greenlaw made an incredible pick of Russell’s pass in the red zone, but unfortunately it was not to be the 49ers night.
