Final @ 3COM Park

The San Francisco 49ers have moved themselves into the NFC playoff hunt with a 20-to-14 win over Seattle.

Frank Gore ran for 212 yards on 24 carries, including a 51-yard scamper that set up Joe Nedney's 39-yard field goal in the first quarter.

Alex Smith threw for a touchdown and ran for another in the Niners' third straight win, which leaves San Francisco just a game behind the first-place Seahawks in the NFC West. He tossed a nine-yard TD pass to Arnaz Battle, then ran for a one-yard run that put the 49ers ahead 17-to-0 in the second quarter. Smith was 19-of-25 for 163 yards and no interceptions for the 5-and-5 Niners.

Seneca Wallace passed for 252 yards, two touchdowns and three interceptions for the 6-and-4 Seahawks.

Seattle running back Shaun Alexander had 37 rushing yards on 17 carries in his first action since missing two months with a broken foot.
