SEATTLE (AP) - Olindo Mare kicked a 30-yard field goal as time expired to send the Seattle Seahawks to a 20-17 victory on Sunday over the San Francisco 49ers, who wasted a career passing day from Alex Smith and many other opportunities.
After San Francisco called time out to try to ice the veteran on a cold day, Mare made his second field goal of the final quarter and extended his team record of 18 consecutive makes for the Seahawks (5-7). They also kept alive hopes for a winning season, if not a playoff berth.
The Seahawks also severely damaged the postseason hopes of the 49ers (5-7).
