SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- No turkey necessary this time, just some high-flying defense and more power running by Marshawn Lynch.
On another Thursday night, and on San Francisco's home field again.
"It felt like a really normal Seahawk night tonight," coach Pete Carroll said.
Wilson completed 10 of his first 12 passes and finished with 235 yards passing and Lynch ran for 122 yards after vomiting on the sideline in the first half, something Carroll said was caused by him getting winded during a busy opening drive. Seattle won for the first time in four road games this season, avoiding another fourth-quarter collapse.
Carroll and his players were thrilled how they came together after a tough loss at home Sunday against Carolina.
"After the tough loss, we said, 'We choose to believe,'" Wilson said about the message he and defensive end Michael Bennett gave to the team. "The idea was to believe in one another. ... We lost four tough games but we thought we could have won each one of those."
This game lacked its usual intrigue with both teams trying to save their seasons and Carroll missing former nemesis and now-Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh.
Wilson was sacked five times to push his NFL-leading total to 31 and threw a pair of interceptions, but still made plenty of big plays for another lopsided result against the Niners.
This time, it was former 49ers wideout Kassim Osgood weighing in on Twitter with: "'Something ain't right in SF."
Kaepernick's errant passes sailed into both sidelines, one ball even hitting a 49ers staff member in the head early in the game and requiring him to be checked.
Kaepernick dropped to 1-6 in seven starts against the Seahawks with three touchdown passes to nine interceptions and 24 sacks, six more Thursday.
He has a new motto, too: chopping wood.
"When you're chopping wood, just keep chopping until the tree falls, man, you can't get ahead of yourself," Bennett said.
The Seahawks needed six plays once they reached the 3 on their opening drive before Lynch's leaping touchdown, just the team's second TD of the season on the initial drive.
