It was the perfect play call, the 49ers running a screen to RB Brian Westbrook into the face of the Seahawks’ blitz. Westbrook broke through the tackle of S Earl Thomas and ran for a 62-yard touchdown in the second quarter, scoring on the third-longest pass play against Seattle this season.

Turning point

Seattle trailed by 23 points at halftime, and any thoughts of a comeback evaporated when Matt Hasselbeck’s first pass of the second half was intercepted by Dashon Goldson and returned 39 yards for a touchdown. It was the first interception returned for a score against the Seahawks this season.

Seahawks surprises

• Seattle earned a first down in the first quarter, something it failed to do in its previous two games.

• The Seahawks gave up 20 points in the second quarter, the fourth time in the past seven games they’ve allowed a 20-point period.

• Seattle gave up 40 points to the 49ers, a team it had held without a touchdown five times in the past six years. It was the most points San Francisco has ever scored against Seattle.

By the numbers

73 Points allowed by Seattle in two games in the Bay Area, having lost 33-3 at Oakland on Oct. 31.

30 Points scored by San Francisco in the first two quarters, the second-highest first-half total allowed by Seattle this season.

10 Turnovers committed by Hasselbeck in the past three games. He had nine in his first nine starts.

3 Kickoff returns for a touchdown this season by Leon Washington, setting a franchise career record.


“This one was pretty bad. It was not a good day for us, not a good day for me.” — Hasselbeck
