49ers-Seahawks was first 43-16 final in National Football League history

Sherman, who was drafted by Seattle in 2011, spent his entire career with the Seahawks before signing with the 49ers this past offseason. The article stemmed from a 2017 ESPN report claiming there was a growing rift between the quarterback and several defensive players following Seattle's Super Bowl loss to New England after the 2014 season.

Instead, Wagner upstaged Sherman in his first game back in Seattle by jumping in front of a Nick Mullens pass near the goal line for his own interception.

Unfortunately, the local Seattle sports media has been way too preoccupied with whether or not Seahawks fans are going to cheer or boo Sherman. And quarterback Nick Mullens continues to at least provide hope that he has a future as a backup, putting up 414 passing yards and a pair of touchdowns Sunday for a passer rating of 95.3. Admitting that the game has started to slow down a bit for him as he's adjusted to playing at the National Football League level, the former San Diego State star rushed for 65 yards on only seven carries. Projections from ESPN's Football Power Index gave the Seahawks a 78.3 percent chance to make the playoffs heading into this game, good for the fifth-best mark in the NFC, right behind the 7-5 Dallas Cowboys at 80.4 percent. It was a take-care-of-business game, and the Seahawks took care of business with another one of Wilson's more efficient performances. "It's more of a respect thing than anything".

After the game, Pettis spoke about Shanahan's expectations of him. Russell Wilson has led the way so far for Seattle, as he has thrown 3 TDs.

Chris Carson (13 carries, 69 yards) and Rashaad Penny (seven carries, 65 yards, touchdown) helped the Seahawks run for 168 yards - making it eight times in their last nine games that they've topped 150 yards on the ground. Sherman could have agreed with the reporter and praised Wilson. "Their running game is really effective and they let him get to his spots and kept the game plan simple".

Following the trip to Seattle, the Niners will return home for three in a row before ending the regular season in Los Angeles against the Rams. But he is learning to be one of the best. "To see him on the opposite side in another jersey - that he looks ugly in - was cool".

CBSSports.com's Will Brinson acknowledged that with the win, the 7-5 Seahawks have probably played their way into the NFC wild card slot. Over the season's final four games, it's imperative that the Niners find out not only who belongs but whether those who do can play a significant role.

"That was a tribute to my boy", Baldwin said, via the Tacoma News Tribune. If the 49ers can survive the first half and keep the game within one score, then they will have a shot to pull off the upset.

"Right away when we lined up", Pettis said on his 75-yard touchdown.

"I know where he's going to be", Mullens said. Well, a team that has looked deserving of the top pick over the past two weeks will need a whole lot more than just to get healthy if it wants to be better in 2019. "We didn't play as well as we could have".
