With roughly six minutes to go, the score was 25-23 when San Francisco 49ers scored a touchdown. However, Seattle responded by Trevone Boykin making a clock-burning drive that ended the game.
For most of the fourth quarter, Seahawks’ quarterback Russell Wilson was rested. This was after he completed 19 of 31 passes for 258 yards, making one touchdown of the day.Alex Collins, a rookie running back also contributed on offenses, where he made an electric 26-yard run besides rushing for his career high 55 yards in seven attempts. After a one-yard hand off from Russell Wilson Thomas Rawls scored his third rushing touchdown.
Colin Kaepernick, the best of recent players completed 17 of 22 passes made for 215 yards, besides a touchdown. He however faced duress all day. He showed a solid performance in the first half, where he set up to a rushing touchdown for Shaun Draughn with two shorts. However, this offence was weak on the third quarter but later on in the fourth quarter showed some life, a thing that has become par for the course. This was a decent enough performance for him, considering his previous bad performance against Seahawks in the seahawks vs 49ers 2017 game.
At five times, he was sacked by Seahawks defence, plus two times by Bobby Wagner, a linebacker, the highest number in his carrier. As a team, the 49ers fumbled for three times. Even with the score still in doubt, Seattle sent Trevon Boykin to close it out in the second half. This turned the game into a glorified preseason game. In case Atlanta had lost, they would have claimed the second seed.
