The Seahawks ultimately prevailed 23-17 in a hard-fought game between two of the NFL’s most physical teams.

Check out the video recap below:



It didn’t ultimately matter, though, as Pete Carroll’s decision to go for it on fourth-and-goal from the one backfired. Marshawn Lynch mishandled the exchange with quarterback Russell Wilson, lost the football, and the 49ers recovered at the 15-yard line with 8:18 left.

The Seahawks were able to turn the Chancellor pick into three points. Steven Hauschka hit a 47-yard field goal to make it 13 unanswered points, extending Seattle’s lead to 23-17 with 3:37 left in regulation.

Not surprisingly, it went down to the wire at CenturyLink Field.

The 49ers, looking to pull off the unthinkable, moved the ball all the way inside the Seattle 20-yard line in the final minute of regulation.

But their comeback bid eventually fell short.

Colin Kaepernick was looking for Michael Crabtree in the back of the end zone, but Richard Sherman tipped the ball with his left hand and Malcolm Smith intercepted the pass with 22 seconds left.

Sherman and Crabtree got into it after the play.
