I was there! When you ask Seattle Seahawks fans about their favorite game, you’ll get some nostalgic answers and some sentimental answers. Many will tell you the day the Hawks upset the Saints in the playoffs with the Beast Quake run. Many will give you a day in the famed Super Bowl year, perhaps against the Redskins or Panthers. But after last season, there’s a new one to add to the list. On December 23, 2012 the San Francisco 49ers came to town in what was the game of the week between a team barreling towards a first round bye and a team just trying to sneak in despite their stellar play and record. The Seahawks had scored 50+ points in their previous 3 games, something that hadn’t been done since 1950. And they almost did it again. 1st Qtr The Seahawks got on the board early as Marshawn Lynch rushed for a 24 yard touchdown down the sideline just over a minute into the game. Seahawks 7, 49ers 0 Lynch scored again, this time on a short pass from Russell Wilson. From 9 yards out, Wilson hit Lynch as he slid by a couple 49er defenders untouched for the score. Seahawks 14, 49ers 0 2nd Qtr The Niners marched downfield and were stopped by the stout Seahawk defense. On their field goal attempt, Red Bryant got through the middle of the line and stuck his big arm out and blocked the kicked. It was picked up by Richard Sherman and returned 90 yards for a touchdown. Seahawks 21, 49ers 0 The Seahawks defense and offense both shut down San Francisco in a lopsided victory. The 49ers got the ball back and drove downfield yet again. The Seahawks defense stopped them yet again, but couldn’t block this attempt, from 33 yards by David Akers. Seahawks 21, 49ers 3 The defenses went back and forth until just over a minute left in the half, Wilson hit TE Anthony McCoy in the front corner of the endzone for another Seahawk score. Seahawks 28, 49ers 3 The Niners marched downfield again, quickly this time and capped the second quarter with a 54 yard field goal 30 seconds before halftime. Seahawks 28, 49ers 6 3rd Qtr The third quarter was a defensive battle, with both teams fighting for field position. The Seahawks broke free with just over 3 minutes left in the quarter as Wilson hit Doug Baldwin for a 4 yard score. Seahawks 35, 49ers 6 4th Qtr It was another defensive struggle through the first half of the 4th quarter. The first 49er play of the quarter was picked off by Richard Sherman, who jumped in front of Randy Moss in the endzone for the interception. About midway through the quarter, Wilson hit Baldwin again, this time from 6 yards out. Seahawks 42, 49ers 6 The rain didnn’t stop the entire game. In fact, at this point in the 4th quarter, there was not a fan sitting in their seat, as everyone was on their feet chanting “50, 50, 50″ as if to will the Seahawks to break that 50 point mark one more time. It didn’t happen, sadly, as the 49ers picked up a garbage time touchdown as Colin Kaepernick hit TE Delaney Walker for an 18 yard touchdown at the end of the game. Final Score: Seahawks 42, 49ers 13 Top Performers Passing  Russell Wilson – 15/21 171 yard, 4 touchdown, 1 interception Colin Kaepernick – 19/36 244 yards, 1 touchdown, 1 interception Rushing Marshawn Lynch – 26 yards for 111 yards and 2 touchdowns Colin Kaepernick – 7 rushed for 31 yards Receiving Doug Baldwin – 4 catches, 53 yards, 2 touchdowns Michael Crabtree – 4 catches, 65 yards Want some highlights?  CLICK HERE CLICK HERE TO CHECK OUT THE SEAHAWKS PAGE IN OUR CLUBHOUSE SECTION!
