Wilson-led Seahawks down 49ers
The Seattle Seahawks returned to their winning ways Sunday at CenturyLink Field.
Russell Wilson threw four more touchdown passes, DK Metcalf had a big day and the Seahawks beat San Francisco 37-27.
The Seahawks (6-1) led 30-7 early in the fourth quarter on Jason Myers' field goal. Metcalf, who had 12 receptions for 161 yards, had two touchdown receptions, including a 46-yard TD catch-and-run for Seattle's opening score.
Nick Mullens replaced an injured QB Jimmy Garoppolo and led San Francisco to 20 fourth-quarter points.
But, DeeJay Dallas, who earlier had a short TD catch, scored on a 1-yard TD run to provide Seattle with cushion in the fourth quarter. Dallas played because of injuries to Chris Carson and Carlos Hyde.
Seattle suffered its first loss last week against Arizona.
But, they responded against the 49ers (4-4). Wilson went 27 of 37 for 261 yards and four TDs, giving him 26 in seven games.
Mullens went 18 of 25 for 238 yards and two scores. Garopollo went 11 of 16 for 84 yards and an interception before exiting. The 49ers also lost tight end George Kittle to an injury.
The Seahawks play at Buffalo (6-2) at 10 a.m. Sunday, Nov. 8.
