49ers fall to Seahawks

Despite a spirited, fourth-quarter comeback and a wild overtime period, the San Francisco 49ers experienced their first loss of the season Monday night at Levi’s Stadium, a 27-24 overtime beat at the hands of the Seattle Seahawks and quarterback Russell Wilson.

And with that, the 1972 Miami Dolphins could celebrate again, as they still the last NFL team to win a Super Bowl with a perfect record.
With the defeat, the Niners became the final team to lose a game this season, dropping to 8-1. They also became just the third team to win its first eight games and lose its first one in overtime in the Super Bowl era, according to ESPN Stats & Information research.

“You’re always disappointed when you don’t win, especially when we felt we had a number of chances,” Shanahan said. “I was very proud of our guys. I thought we competed very hard. Guys left it all out there. I know guys are hurting right now. I thought all three phases played hard. I thought our defense played unbelievable. I thought the offense played hard as they could but made way too many mistakes to be able to pull out a win in that game.”

On a night when the Niners turned the ball over three times and allowed five sacks and 10 quarterback hits, they still had their chances to win the game. None was more tailor-made for a storybook ending than kicker Chase McLaughlin’s 47-yard field goal attempt in overtime.

More than the rare defensive miscue, the Niners’ offense struggled to take care of the ball and protect quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo.

San Francisco entered the game without tight end George Kittle(knee/ankle), and wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders departed in the second quarter with a rib injury that will require an MRI on Tuesday morning.

More than maintaining an undefeated record, a win Monday would have put the Niners firmly in control of the NFC West division. Instead, Seattle now sits just one game back in the loss column and holds the early tiebreaker.

Seattle Seahawks at San Francisco 49ers

The San Francisco 49ers face the Seattle Seahawks in Week 7 of the regular season. The game takes place on Thursday, October 22 at 5:25 p.m. PT at Levi’s® Stadium.

Both teams enter the contest with 2-4 records. So this game isn’t just another chapter of this heated rivalry but also, perhaps, a last chance for either team to save its playoff chances in 2015.

The Seahawks were pegged by many to make a triumphant return to the Super Bowl again this season after their heartbreaking loss last year but with the way things are going at the moment things are bleak and they could very well find themselves with a sub .500 record when it’s all said and done. The Hawks haven’t been able to utilize Jimmy Graham in the way he was used in New Orleans and Marshawn Lynch has had to battle injury woes and as such they are just 2-4 on the year and are three games behind the Arizona Cardinals. Russell Wilson needs to get this group together and put their frustrations aside or things might get even uglier as Kam Chancellor and Richard Sherman were at each others throats last week and that could be the beginning of the end of the Legion of Doom.
The Niners meanwhile sport an identical 2-4 mark and head into Thursday night’s game as a four point underdog. San Fran hasn’t been able to get things going under Jim Tomsula and while they have some play makers on the offensive side of the ball we haven’t seen a breakout from them yet. Carlos Hyde has been the line bright spot for the Niners this season as he will continue to be one of the game’s better runners moving forward but with San Fran playing from behind a lot his yards haven’t been as impacting and as such San Fran is well back of Arizona and are a long shot to even finish with eight wins this season.

LAST MEETING

The 49ers officially were eliminated from playoff contention when they fell 17-7 at Seattle on Dec. 14. It also marked the final straw for coach Jim Harbaugh, who later said he learned after this game that his tenure officially would end after two more games. That fate seemed sealed 17 days earlier, anyhow, when the 49ers lost 19-3 at home on Thanksgiving, a defeat that prompted CEO Jed York to apologize on Twitter to fans.

Detroit Lions at Seattle Seahawks

When: 8:30 p.m. ET

Where: CenturyLink Field, Seattle

The Lions are still searching for their first win, while the defending NFC champs don’t even look like the best team in their own division. The two clubs will be under the microscope on Monday Night Football in a pivotal conference matchup at Seattle’s CenturyLink Field.

The Lions are off to their worst start since 2010, when they lost their first four games en route to a 6-10 finish. You don’t want to bury anybody after just three games, but an 0-3 start is a huge hole to crawl out of for a Lions team seeking to make back-to-back playoff appearances for the first time since the mid-90s.

The rediscovery of Jimmy Graham and the return of Kam Chancellor helped the Seattle Seahawks put aside an 0-2 start.

Those factors as well as the performance by an undrafted rookie have lessened the concern over star running back Marshawn Lynch’s health.

Lynch, who had been dealing with a sore back and neck along with a calf injury, had a difficult time getting himself loose before last Sunday’s 26-0 victory over Chicago. He didn’t come out of the locker room until midway through the first half, rushing five times for 14 yards before injuring his hamstring.

The team announced Sunday the five-time Pro Bowler won’t play Monday after not practicing this week. He’s only missed one game since joining the Seahawks early in the 2010 season.

The Seahawks won the last two home meetings by a combined 33 points but dropped the most recent matchup 28-24 in 2012 when Stafford threw a touchdown pass with 20 seconds left.
