For the second time this season, the 49ers faced an MVP worthy QB, and for the second time this season, the 49ers lost by a field goal. The defense managed to hold the previously-thought-to-be-unstoppable offense to their lowest points of the season, but poor coaching decisions ultimately lost us the game. With that loss, the Seattle Seahawks are in position to take over the division by beating the Minnesota Vikings on Monday Night Football, dropping the 49ers to the 5th Seed in the NFC. So naturally, it’s time to cheer for the Vikings and that “Ancient WTF” Kirk Cousins.
There’s no update on the injuries to D.J. Jones and Jaquiski Tartt yet, but Richard Sherman assures us that he’ll be ready for next Sunday. Other than that, there’s no real news from after the game, just a bunch of articles hyping up Lamar Jackson.
