The San Francisco 49ers started out on the right path with two nice rushes by Frank Gore to get the first down. Alex Smith connected with Michael Crabtree for four yards and Randy Moss for 14 yards and a third down conversion. The drive stalled from there, and the 49ers were forced to punt from Seattle's 41.
Seattle started their first drive of the game from their own four, but Russell Wilson managed to find Michael Robinson for 12 yards, Doug Baldwin for seven yards, and Marshawn Lynch for 13 yards. A San Francisco personal foul put the Seahawks in field goal range, and Steven Hauschka put up a 52-yard field goal to give Seattle a 3-0 lead.
The 49ers responded with a tying field goal of their own as Gore and Kendall Hunter responded with some big gains to march San Francisco down the field. Crabtree had some nice yards after contact too.
A David Akers 38-yard field goal tied things up at 3-3.
