The San Francisco 49ers traveled to the Pacific Northwest looking to clinch the NFC West against the Seattle Seahawks in front of a national TV audience. Instead of building off their big win from last week and showing why they are the team to fear in the NFC, they proved the opposite for a division rival who has now won three straight impressive games.
The 49ers were not in control at any point in the game and the Seahawks simply dominated in all aspects. Russell Wilson made the Niners defense look soft and mediocre, while the Seahawks defense showed Colin Kaepernick why they are one of the premier D’s in the NFL. Despite the loss the 49ers can still win the NFC West with a win next week, but the way the whole team played on Sunday night did not leave San Francisco in an optimistic mood. Stay tuned to Niner Noise for full analysis.
