Sea­hawks shock 49ers

Mercury (Hobart) - - BASEBALL, NFL, RALLYING -

SEATTLE’ S Ja­son My­ers kicked a 42yard field goal as over­time ex­pired to give the Sea­hawks a 27-24 vic­tory over pre­vi­ously un­beaten San Fran­cisco in an NFL thriller yes­ter­day.

In a wild drama filled with stel­lar de­fen­sive plays and each team miss­ing a chance to win in over­time, the Sea­hawks im­proved to 8-2 while drop­ping the 49ers to 8-1, still a half-game atop Seattle in the NFC West di­vi­sion.

“I don’t ever re­mem­ber play­ing in a game that was so crazy, back and forth and back and forth,” Sea­hawks quar­ter­back Rus­sell Wil­son, pic­tured, said. “It was an in­cred­i­ble game.”

Dead­locked at 24-24 after reg­u­la­tion time, the epic matchup needed the full 10 ex­tra min­utes to de­cide the win­ner.

Wil­son com­pleted 24-of-34 passes for 232 yards and a touch­down.
