San Francisco 49ers vs. Seattle Seahawks: Live Score, Highlights and Analysis
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.

How good is Frank Gore...

"That was the most physical 2nd half I've seen our team play"
Frank Gore was in the x-ray room afterward. Can't tell what ails him.— Matt Maiocco (@MaioccoCSN) October 19, 2012
:43 seconds remaining in the game...
A penalty on the Seahawks -- on a possibly converted 4th and 17 -- seems to have resulted in a safety. However, Harbaugh wanted to decline the safety by penalty and accept the gain and turnover on downs by the Seahawks.
To make sense if this, I suppose Harbaugh didn't want to risk a special teams error, and considering Seattle is out of timeouts, the 49ers can just kneel on it and call it a game.
Vernon Davis does not have a catch tonight..and the Niners are going to win this game..didn't think that scenario was possible— trey wingo (@wingoz) October 19, 2012
1:03 remaining in the game...
A false start follows the Aldon Smith sack and Seattle is going the wrong way.
ALDON SMITH WITH THE SACK!
Not enough time to hold back the youngster. Clock is running..
GREAT PUNT BY ANDY LEE!
The All-Pro punter gets the Seahawks at their own 10-yard line with a 65-yard punt. Great special teams by the Niners. Defense must come up one last time.
The 49ers are running clock with the run...
And with 1:48 remaining in the 4th quarter, the Niners will punt it back to the Seahawks. There is still a chance they come back here and tie it.
Interesting that Kendall Hunter, not Frank Gore, is in the game as the 49ers try to salt the clock. Gore on his knee on the sideline.— Matt Barrows (@mattbarrows) October 19, 2012

2 Minute Warning
There is only two minutes left in the game. The 49ers have possession of the ball and a 7-point lead. It looks as if they could close this, but as they say, "it ain't over till it's over."
Second flag picked up...
The refs looked like they were going to call a pass interference but luckily they picked up the flag, crediting Patrick Willis with a deflection. The incomplete pass came on third down and the 49ers get the ball back with 2:05 remaining in the game.
San Francisco leads 13-6 in the 4th.
49ers defense is getting after it...
Talk about great plays by the corners. Rogers and Culliver come up big on first and second down.— Kevin Lynch (@klynch49) October 19, 2012
49ers DEFENSE IS FIRED UP!
They are attacking, attacking and trying to make a play on the ball. They want to end this game right here.
3:40 remaining in the fourth quarter...
On a crucial 3rd and 1, following a won challenge by Harbaugh, the 'Hawks were able to convert. They need a touchdown to tie this game. But the drive is still very much alive.

Frank Gore has 182 total yards...
...131 on the ground and 51 yards receiving on five catches
At this pace, Frank Gore is having success rushing, receiving. What's next? Flying? Maybe 49ers can get a TD that way.— Samuel Lam(@SamuelYLam) October 19, 2012
No matter how it ends, this game has been enormously entertaining. Proof that games don't need to be 45-42 with 100 throws.— Albert Breer (@AlbertBreer) October 19, 2012
