The 49ers knock off the Seahawks, 13-6 on Thursday Night Football 

To kickoff Week 7, the San Francisco 49ers hosted their division rival Seattle Seahawks at Candlestick Park. This was an extremely physical, heated battle from beginning to end. It was peppered with trash talking and shoving. And even though it was a low scoring affair, it was an incredibly entertaining football game. 

49ers running back Frank Gore completely took over this game, accumulating nearly 200 all-purpose yards. He was the Niners' key to victory tonight, as they rode him to a significant bounce-back win. Seattle's defense could do nothing to stop the production of Gore. 

He was so productive, that even though Vernon Davis was held without a catch, the offense operated well enough through him to pull off a win. Gore finished with 16 rushes for 131 yards on the ground. 

With a win this evening, the 49ers take a half-game lead in their division, moving to a 5-2 record. It was a statement game by the team, keeping them headed in the right direction this season.
