Seahawks win, spoil Singletary's debut in San Francisco
SAN FRANCISCO - The Seattle Seahawks broke a three-game losing streak yesterday with a 34-13 victory over the San Francisco 49ers.
Fullback Leonard Weaver made two lengthy touchdown catches, Josh Wilson returned an interception 75 yards for a score and the Seahawks ruined the debut of Mike Singletary as San Francisco's coach.
Seneca Wallace passed for 222 yards in his third career victory as a starter, including short passes that turned into scores of 43 and 62 yards by Weaver. He was 15-of-25 with no interceptions.
The win improves the Seahawks' record to 2-5, while the 49ers lost their fifth straight game.
Next Sunday, the Seahawks will be back home to play the Philadelphia Eagles.
Seahawks quarterback Matt Hasselbeck missed his third straight game so Seneca Wallace made his second straight start yesterday at San Francisco. Hasselbeck is scheduled for more tests today on a sore knee that's aggravated by a bulging disc in his back.
Seattle Pro Bowl linebacker Lofa Tatupu left the Seahawks' game against the 49ers in the first half with a groin injury and did not return. Tatupu got knocked out of last week's game against Tampa Bay with a concussion but was able to play this week.
