Seahawks vs. 49ers in Monday night game

SEATTLE, Wash. - The Monday Night football spotlight shines on Qwest Field for tonight's Seahawks game against the 49ers.

The Seahawks are disappointed to have only a 4-and-4 record. But they still lead the NFC West, while division rival San Francisco is slumping worse with a 2-and-6 record and a six-game losing streak.

Seattle coach Mike Holmgren says he'll emphasize what the team does best, which is Matt Hasselbeck's passing, because the rushing offense has struggled. Shaun Alexander has his fewest yards rushing through eight games since he became a starter in 2001.

This is the second meeting of the teams this season. Seattle beat the 49ers in Week 4 at San Francisco.
