Sherman Helps Hawks Best 49ers
San Francisco had a tough time dealing with Seahawks instead of turkeys.
Richard Sherman picked off two passes and Steven Hauschka kicked four field goals as Seattle stifled the Niners 19-3. Sherman's first interception set up Russell Wilson's 13-yard TD pass to Robert Turbin late in the first quarter. The second pick snuffed out a potential 49ers drive late in the game.
Russell Wilson passed for 236 yards and thoroughly outplayed Colin Kaepernick, who had one of his worst performances for the 49ers. Kaepernick was 16 of 29 for just 121 yards.
The 8-4 Seahawks are one game ahead of San Francisco for second place in the NFC West. Seattle can move one game behind first-place Arizona if the Cardinals lose Sunday in Atlanta.
