Seahawks two-minute drill

Players of the Game

Seahawks K Olindo Mare: Two more field goals on the day to make him 13 of 14 this season.

Play of the Game

The 49ers went for the first down on a fourth-and-four with 44 seconds left in the first half, trailing 13-3. Quarterback J.T. O'Sullivan tried to hit wide receiver Arnaz Battle with a short pass, but Seahawks CB Josh Wilson stepped in front of the underthrown ball and returned the interception 75 yards for a touchdown that put the game out of reach at 20-3.

Turning Point

Facing fourth-and-six from the San Francisco 35 late in the first quarter, the Seahawks lined up to go for the first down. Wallace hit Koren Robinson on a slant pass for the first down, then the Seahawks finished off the 63-yard drive with a T.J. Duckett touchdown to take a 13-0 lead.
