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.
