The Seattle Seahawks outlasted the San Francisco 49ers 27-24 on Monday Night Football in what might not just be the game of the year in the NFC West, but the best game the NFL has seen through 10 weeks.
The game featured haymaker after haymaker between the two defenses, with each team recording five sacks and with seven turnovers between them. It ended when Seahawks kicker Jason Myers hit a 42-yard field goal as time expired in the extra period.
The loss was the first of the season for the 49ers, ensuring that the 1972 Miami Dolphins will again drink their champagne as the last unbeaten team to win a Super Bowl.
