Even though the Seahawks won the toss and received the ball, their opening drive ended in a Russell Wilson interception in the red zone.

The 49ers had two drives in overtime before Jason Myers eventually kicked a game-winning 42-yard field goal to give the Seahawks a win.

The Seahawks are now 2-0 in overtime games this season.

Seattle has a bye this week and will travel to Philadelphia to play the Eagles on Nov. 24.
