Good morning, 12s. Happy Victory Monday! Here's a look at what's happening today – Monday, Jan. 4 – for your Seattle Seahawks.
What's Being Said: Seahawks 26, 49ers 23
The Seahawks ended the 2020 regular season on a high note, completing a 10-point fourth-quarter comeback win over the 49ers in Week 17. Russell Wilson led two touchdown drives in the final 11 minutes to secure the victory. It was a record-setting day for Tyler Lockett, as he now has the most receptions by a Seahawks player in a single season. He had 12 catches for 90 yards and two scores on the day -- his third multi-touchdown game of the year. With the win, Seattle locked up the No. 3 seed in the NFC and secured a date with the Los Angeles Rams at Lumen Field on Saturday at 1:40 p.m. PT.
