Seahawks beat 49ers 19-3, continue defensive dominance

That was easier than expected.

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

The Seahawks beat the 49ers 19-3 on Thursday, moving their record up to 8-4 and maintaining a wild card lead in the NFC. With the Eagles beating the Cowboys, Dallas dropped to 8-4 and hold a lead in at the fifth wild card spot, but the important thing is that Seattle is currently in a playoff lead and continue to control their own fate, pardon the cliche.

They head to next Philly next week in another game that could really solidify themselves as a leader in the playoff races before finishing off with three games against the NFC West to end the year.

Russell Wilson was 15-of-22 for 236 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions. He continued to improve his passing numbers and really had his best game in San Francisco (or Santa Clara, if you please) in his career. The 49ers play in Seattle in two weeks.

Marshawn Lynch rushed for 104 yards. Richard Sherman had two interceptions. Colin Kaepernick was once again dominated by the Seattle defense, but this was perhaps the worst performance against the Seahawks in his career.
