Seahawks shock 49ers
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.
