Seahawks win second and last

The Seattle Seahawks won their second road game of the season and finished the regular season 10-6 record after a galvanizing 24 - 17 win over the San Francisco 49ers. <br><br> The win was galvanizing in that the Seahawks overcame a lackluster first quarter, dropped passes, a missed field goal, a dropped punt, an interception and a 14 to 0 deficit to finish the season with 10 wins for the first time since 1986 and sweep the season series against the 49ers.

After San Francisco took a 14-0 lead on a Jeff Garcia to Cedric Wilson pass with 8:47 left in the first half, Seattle's offense came alive and scored 14 unanswered points.

The first score was a 31 yard pass play from Matt Hasselbeck to Alex Bannister, the second game tying touchdown came on a three yard run by Shaun Alexander with 54 seconds left in the first half.

The much-maligned Seattle defense played with a purpose and aim in the second half and limited the 49ers to a 38-yard field goal by Todd Peterson on the opening drive of the second half.

The defense recorded three sacks, two by Chad Brown and kept San Fran quarterback Jeff Garcia running for his life most of the game. Garcia finished the day 22 of 38 with 248 passing yards and one interception to go with two touchdowns passes.

The Seattle offense did it's part by scoring ten points in the second half, establishing a ground game in the fourth quarter and netting 394 total yards on offense for the game.

Quarterback Matt Hasselbeck finished the day with 315 passing yards, 24 completions on 37 attempts, two touchdowns and two interceptions.

Running back Shaun Alexander finished the day with 85 rushing yards and gained 60 of those 85 in the fourth quarter.
