Setting the tone
After the Seahawks went three-and-out on their opening possession, the Niners charged downfield with ease on their first drive, which ended with a field goal and an early 3-0 lead.
Finding a rhythm
Once again, Seattle went three-and-out on its following possession.
Then, San Francisco extended its lead to 10-0 after going 85 yards in five plays. Christian McCaffrey started the drive with a monster 68-yard rush, capping it off by reeling in a short touchdown pass from Purdy.
On the hunt
The Seahawks closed the gap early in the second quarter, 10-7, thanks to a 7-yard score from Kenneth Walker.
Seattle took a 14-13 lead on the following drive, courtesy of a jaw-dropping 50-yard score from DK Metcalf.
Both teams traded field goals before the break to keep it a one-point game, 17-16.
Purdy punched in a 1-yard score midway through the third quarter to put the Niners back on top, 23-17.
Sealing the deal
The Niners continued to pour it on as the forth quarter got underway.
After a costly Seahawks fumble, Elijah Mitchell came up with a 7-yard score on the ensuing drive, followed up by a smooth two-point conversion from star tight end George Kittle to put the home team up 31-17.
The Niners came up with their third touchdown on three consecutive possessions, thanks to the quick feet of Deebo Samuel. Just like that, Purdy & Co. took a 38-17 lead early in the fourth quarter.
Too little, too late
Smith connected with Metcalf for a quick score late in the final frame to close the gap slightly, but it wasn’t enough to spark a comeback, and things ended there, 41-23, after a failed two-point conversation.
