49ers 31 - 13 Seahawks summary, stats, scores and highlights | NFL Week 12

Update:
The San Francisco 49ers rolled to their third straight win with a demolition of the Seattle Seahawks to take a commanding lead in the NFC West.

Check out all the score from Thanksgiving Day here on AS English

- Battle at the top of the NFC West

- Smith active despite elbow injury

- Purdy, Niners open game with TD drive

- McCaffery 2 TDs puts SF up 21-3

- Brooks pick six brings Seahawks back to life 

- SF D shuts out Seahawks offense 

as.com

Purdy got one leg, and Deebo got another although he was happy to chuck that into the crowd of Niners fans on his way to the locker room. Something tells me Deebo and he rest of the Niners will be eating well tonight, turkey leg or no turkey leg. 

as.com

I must say I didn't see who was awarded the MVP turkey legs after the game, but George Kittle made a break towards the locker room after snagging the entire bird!

as.com

The Niners looked rattled for a few minutes after the pick six, but after punting a couple time Purdy led a six play drive that ended with a 28 yard pass to Brandon Aiyuk midway through the fourth quarter. That would seal the win for the Niners who rattle off their third win running, taking a commanding lead in the NFC West and are now 2nd and the NFC after the Lions loss earlier in the day. 

as.com

The Seahawks had a moment of hope early in the third quarter when Jordyn Brooks took this interception to the house after a double deflection landed right in his hands. It was the first and the only time the Seahawks would get into the endzone. SEA got into the red zone just once and had to settle for a third quarter field goal, but the Niners would take control from there. 

as.com

Geno Smith came into the Thanksgiving game with an injured elbow and had a short week to heal it. It's not going to feel any better after getting sacked six times for a total loss of 48 yards. This new look Niners defense has made converted them from contender to favorite. This is the most complete team in football, and they have shown that for the last three weeks. 

as.com

McCaffery had almost 100 total yards before halftime, and had his second of two TDs with this incredible run in which he redirects the defense and drags two defenders over the goal line. He ended the night with 114 yards on 19 carries and 25 yards on 5 receptions. 

as.com

The defense did their thing in Seattle on Thursday night. Since the addition of Chase Young this D line is causing havoc for opposing offenses, which allows the secondary guys to jump on rushed passes from the pocket. This time it was Tavonn Kinlaw jumping the route and making the pick to set up a Niners field goal on the next possession. 

as.com

The Niners had fantastic field position all day long thanks to their defense who let up an early field goal but then shut the Seahawks down for the rest of the first quarter. They allowed less than 60 yards in the first half which allowed the offense to run away with the game before halftime. Christian McCaffery scored his first of two TDs from two yards out at the beginning of the second quarter. 

as.com

The Niners came into the Thanksgiving looking like one of the best teams in the league and only reaffirmed that against the Seahawks on Thursday. Purdy, McCaffery and San Fran drove right down the field and scored a TD on the opening drive with this Deebo Samuel two yard TD. The Niners ran all over the Seahawks, totaling 169 yards and scoring three TDs on the ground.

NFL on Thanksgiving has become as synonymous as fireworks on the 4th of July. Since 1934, the NFL has featured the Detroit Lions on TV while millions of Americans across the country sit down to enjoy their feast. The Cowboys joined the tradition in 1966, and since 2006, the NFL has given us a third primetime game to round out the almost 10 hours of pigskin on Turkey Day. The Lions have played 84 games on the fourth Thursday of November. The Cowboys have played 56 games. This will be the sixth time the Niners have played on Thanksgiving and the fifth time the Seahawks have played on this festive day. San Fran is 2-2-1 while the Seahawks are 2-2 playing

Walker sidelined 

There is good news and there is bad news for the Seahawks leading rusher, Kenneth Walker. Seattle will not have to put him on IR, at least at the moment, although the oblique injury that he suffered last week against LA appears to be significant. Last year’s runner up for Offensive Rookie of the Year had 595 yards and 6 TDs this season before going down in the first quarter of last game. This is a big blow for the Seahawks, and Geno Smith who depends on a steady run game to be able to open up some looks down field for DK Metcalf and Tyler Lockett. It will be up to Zach Charbonnet to carry the majority of the load tonight. He averages 4.9 yards on his 53 carries today, and has 19 catches out of the backfield, but is yet to get into the end zone.

How do NFL players who play today celebrate Thanksgiving?

Thanksgiving football is great for us. We love kicking back with our first, or second or third plate of turkey with the fixings, but do we ever think about those entertaining us?The Cowboys and the Lions are always playing on Thanksgiving, so I guess they are used to it. But how do those who play in the Turkey Day games celebrate the big day?

Mr. Irreplaceable 

Brock Purdy hit a minor speed bump this season, which is only normal when we remind ourselves that he is in just his second year our of Iowa State. It’s easy to forget that when you see him play like he did last year and for most of this year. He is coming off of what might have been his best performance in the NFL, posting a perfect 158.3 passer rating going 21/25 against the stingy Bucs D. He has the highest passer rating in the league at 115.1, nine points better than Tua Tagovailoa in second place, ad is the most accurate passer, completing 70.2% of his passes. His 2,662 yards are 6th in the league and he has thrown 18 TDs which puts him in a tie for 4th, just four back of league leader Tua Tagovailoa. We know the MVP is usually a QB award, and right now I don’t think there is a single QB playing better than Purdy.

Putting in the overtime

Being away from family and friends on Thanksgiving is never an easy thing. The players and coaches sometimes have to sacrifice their Turkey Day, but so do the referees and the cheerleaders who have to be at the stadium the majority of the day. Most people who have to work the holidays get paid extra, but does that apply to the refs and cheerleaders who are down on the field instead of celebrating the holiday?

Geno's ready to rumble

The Niners are a tough enough team to match up to when you have a healthy quarterback. When you have a banged up QB? Forget about it. Geno Smith injured his elbow after taking a big shot from Aaron Donald at the end of the third quarter last week, which knocked him out until the final drive of the Seahawks afternoon. He made a heroic attempt at a comeback going 3/4 for 36 yards and setting up what would have been a game winning field goal had Meyers made it from 55 yards. Geno is going to give it a go, but will have to protect that injured elbow against a new and improved Niners defensive line that features Chris Young and Nick Bosa.

Seahawks last game

The Seattle Seahawks were bruised and battered in their divisional match up with the LA Rams last week. Kenneth Walker was sidelined with an oblique injury and Geno Smith ended up missing most of the fourth quarter after taking a shot from Aaron Donald. Seattle led 16-7 when Smith went down, but LA scored a fourth quarter TD and a late field goal to take the lead with 1:30 to go in game. An injured Smith would reenter the game and led the Rams into field goal range, but Jason Meyers missed a 55 yarder as the time expired to hand the Seahawks their second loss in the last three.

Niners last game

The Niners continued to look like one of the strongest teams in the league at Levi Stadium last week in their win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Brock Purdy had a perfect passer rating and the Niners defense came up with two big red zone stops late in the fourth quarter to seal their second straight win after a three game skip. Purdy went for 333 yards and 3 TDs to three different receivers, one of those was a 76 yard bomb to Brandon Aiyuk in the beginning of the third quarter to break the game open. Purdy’s third TD of the game went to George Kittle which let the Niners cruise to a win against one of the league’s best defensive teams.
