Quarterback Alex Smith and running back Bryan Westbrook hooked up on a 62-yard pass-and-run play for a touchdown to stretch the San Francisco 49ers’ lead over the Seattle Seahawks to 27-7 in the first half today in San Francisco.
The play camed on a third-and-four play after the 49ers had regained possession when the Seahawks turned the ball over on downs. On fourth and four from the 49ers’ 32, the Seahawks passed up a field-goal try and Matt Hasselbeck’s pass downfield intended for Ruvell Martin was incomplete.
Two Seahawks turnovers in the second quarter helped the San Francisco 49ers take a 20-7 lead over the Seattle Seahawks today in the first half in San Francisco.
Smith found receiver Josh Morgan for a 15-yard touchdown pass three plays after the second Seattle turnover, giving the Niners their 20-7 lead. Matt Hasselbeck fumbled while being sacked by San Francisco’s Travis LaBoy, who also recovered the ball at the Seattle 17.
The Seahawks earlier tied the score 7-7 when Hasselbeck hit Ruvell Martin with an 11-yard touchdown pass. The Seahawks drove 52 yards in seven plays following a 49ers punt. Hasselbeck passes to Chris Baker for 15 yards and Brandon Stokley for 16 yards were key plays.
The 49ers came back with a pair of Jeff Reed field goals to take a 13-7 lead. The first was a 33-yarder that was partially blocked by the Seahawks’ Aaron Curry. The Niners had driven from their own 30 to the Seattle 12, but the drive stalled after a holding penalty.
Reed then kicked a 44-yarder after the 49ers regained possession via an interception by Takeo Spikes of a Hasselbeck pass that slipped through the fingers of intended receiver Michael Robinson.
Earlier, quarterback Alex Smith and receiver Vernon Davis hooked up on a 42-yard touchdown pass to give the 49ers an early 7-0 lead. The touchdown capped a 74-yard, six-play drive after the 49ers received the opening kickoff.
