Seattle’s 12th man was credited for a turnover on Sunday night.
After going three-and-out on their opening drive of the game, the Seahawks were lining up for a punt on fourth-and-six. Both teams were lined up, but as Jon Ryan was waiting for the snap, someone in the crowd at CenturyLink Field blew a whistle that sounded like the real deal, and it momentarily confused some members of the Seahawks.
A few players stood up and glanced around thinking that play had been stopped, but long snapper Clint Gresham was not one of the guys fooled by the noise. Gresham snapped the ball, and the 49ers were gifted with one of the easiest blocks they’ll record all season.
Craig Dahl recovered the ball and San Francisco took over on Seattle’s 33 yard line.
Check out the strange play below, with a hat tip to SB Nation.

Seattle Seahawks cornerback Brandon Browner is listed as doubtful for Sunday night's game against the San Francisco 49ers, head coach Pete Carroll said, via ProFootballTalk.com.
“He’s doubtful going into the game. We’ll see what happens on game day. We’ll take it all the way up until then – has not been able to get as much work as we’d hoped,” Carroll said.
Seattle Seahawks coach Pete Carroll says left tackle Russell Okung is unlikely to play on Sunday against Jacksonville after suffering a toe injury against San Francisco.
Carroll would not give specifics on the severity of Okung's injury on Monday. He said the team is still awaiting more information before coming to a determination on how long they'll be without their Pro...

Seattle Seahawks Pro-Bowl left tackle Russell Okung left Sunday night’s divisional game against the San Francisco 49ers’ with an apparent foot injury, according to ESPN.com's Terry Blount. The injury occurred in the first half and was reported during the game by the Sunday Night Football crew as a possible toe injury. The Seahawks organization has yet to comment on the seriousness...
The Seattle Seahawks did more than handily defeat the San Francisco 49ers, 29-3, during Sunday Night Football. Apparently, they also set a Guinness World Record for the loudest stadium noise ever recorded, twice.
The record-setting event occurred during a goal line stand in the third quarter when the decibel level at CenturyLink Field reportedly reached 136.6. This shattered the...
Following a Michael Bennett sack during the 49ers-Seahawks game, the 12th Man officially set the mark for the loudest crowd roar ever.
The Seattle Seahawks and their fans set a World Record last night, making their home stadium the loudest ever. Now the Seahawks are trying to make history once again, as the largest favorite in an NFL game this season. Although the NFL is only three weeks old heading into this week, Seattle has opened up as nearly a 20 point favorite heading into their home game this week on Sunday...
While I was personally rooting for the San Francisco 49′ers during Sunday night’s match between the Niners and the Seattle Seahawks, I have an affinity for sh*t talkers who can back it up. Naturally that means that Seahawk cornerback Richard Sherman ranks high on my likes list.
Sherman was a key piece in the 29-3 victory over the Seahawks NFC West rival 49ers with the biggest...
Richard Sherman, who once played under Jim Harbaugh at Stanford, gave his former coach a slap in the rear and a “good game” during the post-game of the Sunday Night Football game between the 49ers and Seahawks. The two have bad blood now, though, after Sherman called Harbaugh a “Bully” last season.
Sherman #Seahawks said he tried to talk to his former college coach...
The Seattle Seahawks rode bad weather, and the loudest crowd in stadium history to a 29-3 dismantling of the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday night football. Sherman was his normal polarizing self after the game, calling out all the idiots who doubted his team.
“There are a lot of pundits and ignorant idiots who thought, ‘Oh, the Seahawks are gonna lose this game.’ Well, please...
The San Francisco 49ers and the Seattle Seahawks love to hit and go after the ball. These are two tough teams. In fact, the whole NFC West was built off toughness. Each team needed to compete with what the other was building. This is the toughest division in the NFL.
This game, just like any other NFC West showdown, will be about toughness, physical & mental. There has been...
Spoiler alert: Colin Kaepernick (or at least his Madden NFL 25 avatar) will be losing an eyebrow as per the bet in the Madden TV commercial since Russell Wilson and the Seattle Seahawks dominated the San Francisco 49ers Sunday evening, 29-3.
After last week’s QB performance, I gave Wilson a ‘B’ grade, with the expectation that he and the Hawks could and would improve. Kaepernick...
