The Sunday Night Football contest between the 49ers and Seahawks was billed as a hard-hitting slugfest between two rivals.
Thus far, it's lived up to expectations.
During the first half, Niners tight end Vernon Davis was the recipient of a bone-jarring hit, courtesy of Seattle safety Kam Chancellor.
Davis was going up to haul in a potential touchdown pass when Chancellor leveled him mid-air, causing the ball to come loose and, predictably, drawing a personal foul penalty.
In real time, it appeared to have been an illegal hit, with Chancellor aiming for the head area, always a no-no. But replay clearly showed that Chancellor made contact in Davis' chest, a legal play.
In any case, the blow concussed Davis, whose helmet smacked the cold turf. He was quickly ruled out for the rest of the game.

San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh endured his most lopsided victory as a head coach since 2007, losing 42-13 to the Seattle Seahawks.
After the Seattle Seahawks convincing win Sunday night safety Earl Thomas and cornerback Richard Sherman told Mike Silver of Yahoo! Sports that Harbaugh honked his car horn at the Seahawks team bus following the 49ers 13-6 victory over Seattle...
I DIDN'T DO IT
Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman's attorneys have an interesting reason for why they say he failed a drug test.
So the reason I'm posting this tackle is because Seattle Seahawks safety Kam Chancellor was called for a penalty on this hit on 49ers tight end Vernon Davis. I was watching it live and got really pissed at how soft the NFL has gotten. Check out the hit below and judge for yourself.
Absolutely terrible call right??? Kam led with his shoulder and hit him right...

Whoever wasn’t on the Seahawks bandwagon, you can jump on board now.
They just proved they can hang with anyone, and I honestly believe they are Super Bowl contenders.

The Seahawks are set to play one of the biggest games in their history. They can prove if they are for real or just beating up on bad teams.
The season is coming to a close and I'm sitting at 142-82. That's over .600 but I can do better.

It’s that time of year. Hope you cast your ballots for the “Don’t Injure Each Other, or Bother to Look Like We’re Even Trying at All” bowl.
Or, excuse me, the Pro Bowl.
The upstart Seahawks could have a couple players heading to Hawaii, not surprising for the hottest team in football.
Let’s start on the offensive side of the ball.
Jim Harbaugh kept his sentences short and information at a minimum Monday, repeating a phrase he will rely on following the worst loss of his NFL coaching career: regroup, refit and reorganize.
That's all the San Francisco 49ers can do at this point.

All year we’ve heard the debate over who will be the NFL’s Offensive Rookie of the Year. Until recently, it’s been one of two guys: RGIII or Andrew Luck. But with Seattle Seahawks’ QB Russell Wilson now joining the discussion, you’ve got to take a very in-depth look into each of their seasons to determine who’s really the most deserving. A 3-man race this close is...
One more win and the Seahawks will secure themselves a playoff spot, but more than just a postseason berth is on the line today. The 49ers are being touted as the best team in not just the NFC, but in the entire NFL, and as the saying goes, if you want to be the best, you have to beat the best. Seattle's earned themselves some favorable press, but a win today will serve notice...
I imagine that most people outside of Seattle don’t know the name Doug Baldwin but the Seahawks receiver made an amazing juggling catch on Sunday Night Football against the 49ers. Baldwin made the 43-yard reception after initially whiffing on the catch. The football bounced off of his face mask, chest, leg and than back into his hands.
