Seahawks keeping pesky 49ers at bay

The Seahawks are down a tight end, but have more stepping up to make plays.

Tight end Nick Vannett just caught his first career touchdown, and the Seahawks are up 14-6 over the 49ers in the third quarter.

Vannett’s playing a bigger role with Luke Willson out with a concussion.

There’s not a lot of offense going around in this one, as both defenses are either playing well or playing well at the right times. The 49ers got a field goal drive to start the second half and cut the gap to a single point, which felt like a victory.
