SEAHAWKS 34

49ERS 0 Once again, the Seattle Seahawks won with their dominant defense. This time, they ended a record NFL streak.

Matt Hasselbeck threw for 254 yards with two touchdowns, Shaun Alexander scored three touchdowns and Seattle's defense was magnificent in a 34-0 win over the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday.

It was the first time San Francisco failed to score since a 7-0 loss to Atlanta at Candlestick Park on Oct. 9, 1977.

Seattle (3-0), which has allowed only 13 points in its first three games, simply shut down the 49ers (0-3). Second-year quarterback Ken Dorsey went 19 of 32 for 153 yards with two interceptions and San Francisco had only 48 yards rushing.

When the 49ers finally threatened midway through the fourth quarter, Ken Hamlin made an interception in the end zone when Dorsey threw into double coverage. Later in the fourth, San Francisco drove to the Seattle 32. Chike Okeafor sacked Dorsey to force another fumble and Rashad Moore scrambled to cover the loose ball.

The Seattle offense looked better after sputtering last week. Hasselbeck had a modest first half, going 10 of 17 for 153 yards and a three-yard touchdown pass to Alexander. In the third, Hasselbeck had a one-yard touchdown pass to Itula Mili.

Seahawks running back Shaun Alexander emphasizes one of his three touchdowns. San Francisco failed to score for the first time since Oct. 9, 1977.
