Seahawks go back on top 20-17, on Wilson strike to Kearse

Russell Wilson AP

This just keeps getting better and better.

Not only did the Seahawks just convert a fourth-and-7, they took a 20-17 lead in the NFC Championship Game with a 35-yard touchdown pass from Russell Wilson to Jermaine Kearse early in the fourth quarter.

They appeared ready to settle for a 54-yard field goal attempt, but after a timeout, chose to go for it. Wilson then took advantage of a free play, with the 49ers jumping before the snap, drilling the ball to Kearse in the back of the end zone.

Of course, that drive began after the Seahawks caught a break on a running into the kicker penalty which should have been called roughing on a 49ers punt,.

After a physical, pounding style throughout the day, these defenses may simply be wearing out, allowing a few big plays to slip through the cracks.

    Pretty sure you can’t go “back on top” unless you were on top at one point

    Those half-time PED injections really helped out the Seahawks

    SF has run all over Seattle since the first fumble.

    They DESERVE to win this game, they have outplayed Seattle all day…

    You can really tell the fix is in… WoW!

    Vegas needs to make it a bit less obvious.

    The “running” into the kicker… Now the fumble, which wasn’t even a fumble. Bowman just took the ball away.

    PED’s, and the refs on your side. It’s gonna be hard for the 9r’s to pull this one out, but I sure hope they do!

    Well at least the refs are trying to have an unbiased game

  6. dukeearl says: Jan 19, 2014 9:24 PM

    Yep, just like Seattle outplayed SF in Candlestick…

    Karma is a ……

    Ugly looking knee injury for Navorro Bowman.

  8. 619sdfan4life says: Jan 19, 2014 9:24 PM

    Pretty sure Seattle is getting every call possible

    NFL is a joke! Clearly it was roughing the kicker when they hit the plant leg on the punter and clearly Bowman had that ball and was down!!!

    Call us Whiners, but you know… Ha right as I type karma shows up!

  11. raiderapologist says: Jan 19, 2014 9:27 PM

    Bowman lost his knee, but kept the ball. It’s only right that Lynch fumbled on the next play.

    The team that wins should win.

  13. dukeearl says: Jan 19, 2014 9:27 PM

    First fumble is a moot point now that the handoff bounced off ML’s chest.
    SF is actually in better position now.

  14. deepthreat88 says: Jan 19, 2014 9:28 PM

    Shame on he NFL for the way these refs performed in this game. Clearly bowman had the ball.

    The missed roughing the kicker call???

    Do the refs know the rules? This is absurd.

    Truly embarrassing for the NFL.

    The entire 49ers season was killed in this play. Bowman had the toughness to make the play even with his leg being bent sideways and still isnt rewarded the fumble. Even if they advanced, losing Bowman would put the 9ers at a big disadvantage to Denver.

    Gotta love how the officiating is completely one-sided…
    Not a big fan of either team, but at least make it fair.

  17. captainspangled says: Jan 19, 2014 9:39 PM

    Lol are Whiners fans really pouting about the officiating after the NFL spotted them 13 in the Divisional Round last week?

    That was one if the most lopsided favoritism officiated games I’ve ever seen, and now it’s coming to bite them.

    Seatless defense is obviously on peds. I really don’t want to see them win the Super Bowl. The talent level on teams in the league isn’t as drastic as seatless defense makes it seem. They are faster and stronger. They also have failed multiple test since Carroll has showed up.

  19. pgilbert2013 says: Jan 19, 2014 9:59 PM

    Good job guys… Make the NFC West proud.

    Go Niners 2014

  20. interiorfan says: Jan 19, 2014 10:00 PM

    Wow……a lot of jealous haters on here. Should be a great game with the Hawks defence against Peyton…..looking forward to,it.

  21. leatherface2012 says: Jan 19, 2014 10:01 PM

    this is the best officiating crew they have? ive been watching nfl since i as a kid over 47 years ago. this is bss. one day they will prove the fix is in and run by vegas

    Its not roughing the kicker if its not hitting the planted leg during a kick. Lee stutter stepped forward and replants his leg during said kick, which takes away the status of PLANT LEG, and why he gets called for running into the kicker.
