SANTA CLARA — This is the live blog for the fourth quarter of the 49ers’ Week 13 game against the Seahawks. I will update this frequently with information and analysis from the press box. Happy Thanksgiving.
7:53 Russell Wilson tries to keep the ball on a second-and-10 read-option play and Aaron Lynch sacks him for an 8-yard loss. Next play, third-and-18 from the Niners’ 40-yard line, Wilson scrambles up the middle for 12 yards and brings the Seahawks back into field goal range. Steven Hauschka makes a 46-yard field goal and the score is 19-3 Seahawks with 10:11 left.
7:56 Carlos Hyde returns the kickoff to the 49ers’ 21.
8:01 Colin Kaepernick’s longest completion of the game has been just 16 yards.
8:01 Mike Iupati is injured.
8:03 Why are the Niners huddling between plays?
8:09 On first-and-10 from the Seahawks’ 46, Kaepernick rolls to his right and throws another pick to Richard Sherman. I didn’t see that coming.
8:12 “The highest level of great.”
8:26 The Seahawks go for it on fourth-and-2 from the Niners’ 13 with 1:54 left. Wilson rolls right and throws low for Luke Willson. The officials rule the pass incomplete. The Seahawks are challenging.
8:28 The refs confirm their ruling.
8:31 K.J. Wright sacks Kaepernick.
8:32 Jed York just tweeted this: “Thank you
#49ersfaithful for coming out strong tonight. This performance wasn’t acceptable. I apologize for that.”
