Hawks Rewind: Ugly, Record-Setting 26-23 Win Over 49ers [PHOTOS]
While the Seahawks (again!) played to exactly the level of their opponent for three quarters, the Seahawks finally broke loose in the fourth for a comeback 26-23 victory over the San Francisco 49ers in a game that took place in Arizona. The win cinched at least the #3 seed in the NFC playoff picture. Seattle could have vaulted into the #1 slot with some help but the Green Bay Packers and the New Orleans Saints both won over the weekend as well stymieing the Seahawks vision of a potential first round bye in the playoffs and home field advantage through out.
Seattle will face their arch nemesis the Los Angeles Rams for a third time this season in the Wild Card weekend of games. The Hawks and Rams will kickoff at 1:40 p.m. on SATURDAY from Lumen Field in Seattle. The game will be televised nationally on FOX-TV and you can, of course, hear the action with hometown announcers and former Seahawk players Steve Raible and Dave Wyman on 94.5 KATS and News/Talk 1280-AM KIT.
Here are all of the highlights in this condensed video of yesterday's game:
Following the game, Seahawks legendary Wide Receiver Steve Largent posted a video that was Tweeted out by the Seahawks congratulating fellow receiver D.K. Metcalf for breaking his 35 year-old team record for most yards receiving in a season. Largent amassed 1,287 yards in the 1985 season. With two catches against the Niners, Metcalf -- in just his second season in the National Football League -- surpassed the great #80 with a total of 1,291 total yards.
The Hawks also posted a sizzle reel of some of the greatest hits in team history with the caption, "Us leaving 2020 like..."
