All Studs and no Duds in Seahawks 43-16 victory over 49ers

Richard Sherman

The 49ers and Seahawks will face off for the first time this season on Sunday, pitting San Francisco cornerback Richard Sherman against his former team.

Afterward, Pete Carroll was asked what it means to the Seahawks to have moved into wild card position - they now hold the first wild-card spot as the NFC's fifth seed - on the same day the Rams clinched the NFC West.

For large portions of the game it felt as if the Seahawks were simply on cruise control, and at no point did it feel like they were in any danger of letting San Francisco make it a competitive game.

In addition to his pick six, Wagner had a sack, another pass defended, a forced fumble, a fumble recovery and a game-high 12 tackles.

Will Richard Sherman get the last word in his return to Seattle? "He is going to be a Hall of Fame corner". He just had a phenomenal game. "It's kind of more of a respect thing than anything". After the Seahawks scored the game's opening touchdown - a four-yard touchdown pass from Russell Wilson to Jaron Brown in the first quarter - the Seahawks re-enacted Sherman's tip of Colin Kaepernick's pass in the 2013 NFC Championship game.

The Seahawks then fell just short of a repeat when Wilson threw an interception from the one-yard line in the closing seconds of a 28-24 loss to New England that still haunts the franchise. "I think he threw for like 160 or 170 ..."

The 2-10 Niners' pursuit of the top pick also got some help from other bottom-dwelling teams who offered surprising results Sunday afternoon. "It was cool. We'll see him in a couple weeks". They play host to the Minnesota Vikings on Monday Night Football next week, then travel to San Francisco before returning home to close out the season with games against the Chiefs and Cardinals. "Absolutely. Especially if you look at our schedule, there's some challenges in there for us that I think will play to our strengths". Sherman has responded well post-Achilles injury this season despite having a tough outing covering Mike Evans and the rest of the Buccaneers wide receiving corps last week.

"Guys have just got to own their jobs, pay more attention, study a little more, I guess", Buckner said. They'll be favored in all but one of those games - a Week 16 matchup against the Kansas City Chiefs. We've had a few talks about what he expects, so I guess you could say that kind of sparked something.

"Right away when we lined up", Pettis said on his 75-yard touchdown. We didn't know. We had to keep finishing, keep working. But guys are fighting hard and giving us the best chance.
