The 49ers hold on for a 13-6 win over Seattle after some goofiness at the end, where coach Jim Harbaugh declined a safety after LB Aldon Smith was chop-blocked in the end zone, because he preferred to just have the ball on the 21-yard-line since the result of the Seahawks' final play wasn't enough to gain a first down.
While some gamblers might night be too happy with the Niners coach at the moment, the result is still a win, pushing the team's record to 5-2, giving them at worst a tie for the NFC West lead and sending the team into their mini-bye week with some momentum before their next game, two Mondays from now, at Arizona.
It was by-and-large a defensive affair as predicted, but outside of a shaky second quarter the 49ers controlled the game and were propelled by a huge second-half effort from Frank Gore, who finished with 131 yards rushing and another 51 receiving to lead the way.
The Niners haven't allowed a touchdown following any of their five regular season defeats under Harbaugh, proving that like the Incredible Hulk, "you shouldn't make them angry, you won't like them when they're angry."
Harbaugh meanwhile improved to 5-1 all time vs. coaching nemesis Pete Carroll, including 3-0 in the pros. The Niners haven't lost a division home game in their last 11 tries, since October of 2008.
