In a game that featured one of the best if not the best defensive line in the NFL, Monday Night Football showcased a dominant performance from the d-line you did not expect.

The Seattle Seahawks (8-2) finally saw their pass rush excel on one of the biggest stages in the league and against the last remaining undefeated team, the San Francisco 49ers (8-1). Niners quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo finally got a taste of the medicine their d-line has been dishing out through the first eight games of this season.

And it all started for Seattle with Jadeveon Clowney. The Seahawks traded for Clowney 74 days ago and has been worth every penny since. On Monday, he absolutely lit up the stat sheet: five tackles, five QB hits, one sack, one forced fumble, one fumble recovery and one touchdown.

Pro Football Focus credited Clowney with 11 pressures and a 90.7 overall grade against SF.

“If I’m being honest, that seems low. What’s a perfect pro football focus grade because that’s what it felt like you were seeing from Jadeveon Clowney. He was absolutely fantastic,” said our Seahawks Insider Joe Fann on the lates Talkin’ Seahawks Podcast.

It was finally the pass rush Seattle has been waiting for this season. Seattle’s defense, who had given up huge yards in the previous weeks to Atlanta’s Matt Schaub and Tampa Bay’s Jameis Winston, came through against one of the best in Garoppolo.

One of the best Monday Night Football games to date. One for the ages. An instant classic.

These were just some of the thoughts and feelings from the NFL world following an epic 27-24 overtime Seattle victory over rival San Francisco on Monday night.

Coming into the game, the big story was the 49ers defensive front who has been absolutely tormenting opposing offenses this season. But the story quickly flipped onto Seattle's defensive line lead by one stellar performance from Jadeveon Clowney: five tackles, one sack, five QB hits, one forced fumble, one fumble recovery and one touchdown.

"What's crazy to me is this performance from the defense came out of nowhere," said our Insider Joe Fann.  From locker room sound to the sights and sounds from the game he's got all the stories you want to hear from the big win.

We have our next great controversy. A true battle between two conflicting sides. The next ‘What do you see: blue dress vs. gold dress?’ or ‘What do you hear: Laurel or Yanny?’

In last night’s epic Seahawks vs. 49ers Monday Night Football overtime thriller, Seattle backup quarterback met Niners corner Richard Sherman at midfield for a coin toss to determine possession in overtime. The head referee asked Smith his call: heads or tails?

And the rest is history. Which do you hear?

Still coming down from last night’s overtime thriller in the Bay? Same. But now the Seahawks (8-2) enter into a much needed bye week of recovery with momentum on their side. 

Putting the Seahawks in primetime calls for a special game: Seattle is now 28-5-1 in primetime games under Carroll, including 9-2 on MNF. The formula for a good game is simple: primetime + Seahawks = happy sports fans.

But, the Seahawks who were scheduled for a Sunday Night Football showdown with the Philadelphia Eagles in two weeks, just got the boot.

The game that Seattle got flexed for? The Green Bay Packers (8-2) at San Francisco 49ers (8-1) at Levi’s Stadium, CA.

In a way this makes sense. Two division leaders (NFC North and NFC West) but both teams in tight divisional races. The Minnesota Vikings are one game behind the Packers while the Seahawks, after an epic OT win on Monday Night Football, are on the heels and breathing down the necks of the Niners.

The Eagles are also in a tight race in the NFC East but both Philadelphia and the Dallas Cowboys have the same record and sitting at the top of the division at 5-4.

Here is what the Seahawks’ remaining schedule looks like:

11/24 at Philadelphia

12/02 vs. Minnesota (MNF)

12/08 at Los Angeles (SNF)

12/15 at Carolina

12/22 vs. Arizona

12/29 vs. San Francisco

Tyler Lockett injury update as Seattle heads into the bye week

Good news for the Seahawks on Tuesday morning as it appears Tyler Lockett is out of the woods in terms of anything severe resulting from his injury last night and he might not even miss any game time:

Pete Carroll on 710 ESPN Seattle radio this morning also added that Lockett, "should be OK going forward."

Lockett spent the night in a Bay Area hospital while dealing with a leg injury sustained in Monday night's win vs. the 49ers. 

Last night, as Joe Fann reported, there was concern about the extent of the injury:

Carroll said there was a lot of swelling right away in Lockett’s leg, which brings along the fear of compartment syndrome that can lead to blood clots.

“There’s concerns about that,” Carroll said. “We’ve got to make sure that there isn’t a compartment element. We’ve got to take care of him. We’re ahead of it so we should be in good shape.”

Lockett caught three passes for 26 yards against the 49ers. Thankfully for Lockett and the Seahawks, Seattle has a bye in Week 11 before traveling to Philadelphia in Week 12. 

Social media reacts: Undefeated no more.

An instant classic under the Monday night lights.

In what felt like an “NFC Championship Game” according to Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson, the game did not disappoint: hard-hitting, trash talk, two teams that know one another very well and two teams that are in a tight race in the NFC West.

And it needed overtime to determine a winner.

Seattle (8-2) defeated rival San Francisco (8-1) 27-24 in overtime off a Jason Myers 42-yard field goal with time expiring. 

Here’s how the sports world reacted to this MNF showdown.

Up next: The Seahawks (8-2) head into a bye week.

Armstead is all smiles talking about Buckner's big touchdown

The Seattle Seahawks pulled off the big victory on Monday, handing the San Francisco 49ers their first loss on the season in a 27-24 overtime thriller. Despite the loss, a couple of former Oregon Ducks on the 49ers side of the field were making players. DeForest Buckner scooped up a Seahawk fumble in the second half and ran it all the way back for a touchdown. His big played brought the 49ers within one score and allowed the team to tie it late. Unfortunately for Buckner, his team lost. However, his teammate and former Oregon Duck Arik Armstead was all smiles talking about the play postgame. 

Armstead called Buckner's scoop and score, "one of the dopest things I've seen a long time."

Take a listen in the video below from our friends over at NBC Sports Bay Area and as always, Go Ducks. 

Scoop and Score: Seahawks get on the board

Scoop and Score: Seahawks get on the board

Trailing 10-0 and in danger of going down more, the Seahawks needed their defense to get a huge stop against the 49ers offense. They did more than just get the stop, they changed the game. 

Jarran Reed blasted through the 49ers offensive line, sacked quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo, and forced a fumble. Before the 49ers could even react, Jadeveon Clowney swooped in, scooped the ball up, and ran it in for the score. 

The Seahawks could have been down 17-0, instead, it was 10-7, and the Seahawks were right back in the game.

It took overtime, but the Seahawks pulled off the 40-34 victory over the Buccaneers last week to improve to 7-2.

Now the Seahawks face one of their biggest tests of the season: The undefeated San Francisco 49ers.

Can the Seahawks pull off the upset and stay in the NFC West hunt, or will the 49ers improve to 9-0?
