This past Thursday, Thanksgiving Day we had three great NFL Week 13 regular season games, and the favorite was the now 8-4 Seattle Seahawks (2nd NFC West) who defeated the now 7-5 San Francisco 49ers (3rd NFC West). The final score was Seahawks 19, 49ers 3. Let’s recap all of the NFL betting action for this matchup.
The scoring in the game was limited to 5 FGs and 1 TD, with the Seahawks scoring the only TD of the game in the 1st quarter, and then 2 FGs in the second quarter, while the 49ers were scoreless in those 2 quarters, thus a half-time the score was Seattle 13 and 49ers 0. The Seahawks then scored a FG in the 3rd in 4th quarter, while the 49ers could only amass a FG in the 3rd quarter, and was scoreless in the final quarter.
DB Sherman once again was a problem for 49ers QB Kaepernick, who in the game had 2 interceptions. The offensive leaders for the 49ers were Kaepernick, who completed 16 of his 29 passes for 121 yards with 2 interceptions, while sacked 4 times for total loss of 21 yards in the game. RBs Gore & Hyde combined for 15 carries for 47 yards, while Receivers Hyde & Johnson combined for 6 receptions for 66 yards.
Leading offensively for Seattle was QB Wilson, who was 15 for 22 passing for 236 yards for 1 TD, while being sacked some 4 times for a total loss of 14 yards. RB Lynch & QB Wilson combined for 27 carries for 139 yards, while Receivers Moeaki & Turbin combined for 3 receptions for 110 yards with Turbin scoring 1 TD.
Team statistics for the game indicate that the 49ers had 16 first downs on 51 total plays in the game for a total of 164 yards, with 100 passing and 64 rushing with 3 turnovers (1 interception and 1 fumble lost), while possessing the ball some 24:41 minutes of the game. The Seahawks also had 16 first downs on 60 total plays for 379 yards in total for the game, with 222 passing and 157 rushing yards with no turnovers, while possessing the ball for 35:19 minutes of the 60 minute game, thus the Seahawks beat the 49er both on the score board and statistically.
As this game ended the Seattle defense prove to be too much for the 49ers, and this was the 2nd consecutive game, that Seattle did not give up any points in the game this season. That defense was led by DB Sherman who had 2 interceptions in the game, and that was his 4th time he completed that in his career. He now totals 23 interceptions since entering the NFL in 2011. That defense also held 49ers QB Kaepernick to his season low of only 121 total passing yards in a game.
