Final Score: 49ers are NFC West Champions
That’s over. 4th and goal with 10 seconds left, the Seahawks got slapped with a delay of game penalty (yes, those same penalties they avoid) and Dre Greenlaw stopped the ball carrier INCHES from the goal line. The 49ers have won this thing and gotten the monkey off their backs. 26-21, 49ers. NFC West Champs.
Hallelujah! I need blood pressure meds.
You knew the defense was going to fall apart...again. It’s 26-21, Seahawks. Blah
49ers couldn’t respond thanks to a garbage unnecessary roughness call that made absolutely no sense. Seahawks have the ball. Here we go.
The 49ers are vampires, you CAN NOT KILL THEM! Sure, the defense can’t get off the field, but then all we have to do is dial up the running game with this.
Less than six minutes to go and Seattle needs two touchdowns. Don’t write this off yet, but let’s see what Robert Saleh has to get the monkey off the 49ers’ backs.
The Seahawks took eight minutes of our lives and drove down the field capping it off with a Marshawn Lynch touchdown. Sorry folks, it’s just a matter of the offense keeping pace. Robert Saleh can’t get his defense off the field even if his life depended on it.
And thanks to one Kyle Juszczyk, the 49ers ran down the field an answered. They missed the two-point conversion (though from my angle it looked like he was in).
Nevertheless, in two minutes the 49ers scored and it’s 19-7, 49ers. Wish they could have ran some more clock to give the D a rest, but I’ll take it.
A stop and a touchdown could end this.
The 49ers got the ball and the proceeded to crap the bed and let the Seattle crowd back into the game. Then the Seahawks took almost 10 minutes to move the ball downfield and score.
But was it? No it wasn’t. First Wilson crossed the line of scrimmage. But even then if you want to argue that, it was delay of game.
Seattle with another lucky break. It’s 13-7, 49ers. Figures.
The 49ers moved down the field again and the Seahawks didn’t have much of an answer. Unfortunately after a nice Deebo Samuel route, Samuel fumbled and failed to get it across for the first down. Nevertheless, the 49ers have the field goal and it’s 13-0, 49ers.
We need touchdowns, not field goals.
The 49ers started on their own 6 yard line and then put together a genius drive across the field ending with this gem of a Deebo Samuel Touchdown.
10-0, 49ers. Just keep it together, boys.
The 49ers deferred to the second half and managed to allow just five plays of the Seahawks before forcing a punt. Despite some long 3rd downs, the 49ers made it down the field until a missed Trey Flowers blocking assignment got Jimmy Garoppolo sacked and they settled for a Robbie Gould Field Goal.
I’ll take it 3-0, 49ers.
This is it! This is the final game of the San Francisco 49ers 2019 NFL regular season and it might be their most important. They travel to Seattle, WA to take on the Seattle Seahawks in a game that should be for all the marbles. If the 49ers win this, they will lock up that No. 1 seed in the playoffs, the NFC West, and a first round bye. It also would certainly help their chances on heading to Miami for the Super Bowl. If they do not win, it will be a loss against a hobbled Seahawks team and another game that slipped through their fingers. This will be an evening game on Sunday Night Football. The final SNF game of the season. It will kick off at 5:20 with Al Michaels announcing and Cris Collinsworth on color.
The 49ers have had an impressive season with some jaw dropping wins. Jimmy Garoppolo has shown up in the clutch, the defense clamped down (well, once upon a time), the run game has gashed opposing defenses left and right. They have locked up a playoff spot in the 2019 playoffs, but home field advantage can a bye week can help them recover. The Seahawks stand in the middle of that. There’s been a lot to show there’s hope for this team in the playoffs and beyond and it all starts with Jimmy Garoppolo’s development. Yes, his statue-like pocket presence can be infuriating, but he has all the tools to show that he can be an elite quarterback in this league.
The Seahawks have been having issues. While pulling win after win out of nowhere, their team has been effectively leveled after their loss to the Arizona Cardinals. Forget the fact the Cardinals beat them in Seattle, this team took a hit. They lost their running game, pieces of their offensive line, and others. Luckily they have Marshawn Lynch coming in to save the day. Maybe. Probably...not. Lynch has kept himself in shape via hard training, but hasn’t played an NFL Snap since October of 2018. He’s also 33. To keep up the nostalgia, Robert Turbin was also invited back.
We’ll see how this works.
The 49ers will be without DT Jullian Taylor and S Jaquiski Tartt. Kevin Givens and Marcell Harris will replace them on the active roster.
The Seahwks will are short-handed on the offensive line, and S Quandre Diggs is questionable.
