Mark Sanchez felt plenty thankful on Thursday

Until Thursday, putting Mark Sanchez and Thanksgiving together conjured up images of Sanchez running headlong into Brandon Moore’s rear end against the Patriots in 2012. Sanchez provided a much better Thanksgiving memory on Thursday in Dallas by leading the Eagles to a 33-10 win that left them in control of the NFC East heading into…

Richard Sherman on Kaepernick: I was the open man

Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman was holding court after Thursday night’s meeting with the 49ers, just as he was the last time the two teams met. That was in the NFC Championship Game, of course, and Sherman saw his profile grow with the way he crowed about his play to force an interception on a pass…

Richard Sherman haunts and taunts the 49ers once again

SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- Midway through the third quarter Thursday night, with the Seattle Seahawks leading the San Francisco 49ers 16-0, a good portion of the crowd at Levi’s Stadium left the building. Seattle cornerback Richard Sherman noticed the exodus. “Yeah, I waved to them goodbye,” Sherman said. Midway through the fourth quarter, Sherman, who already had one interception in the game, had a warning for the 49ers. “I was laughing the whole time,” Sherman said.

Colin Kaepernick has a Seahawks problem

SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- Colin Kaepernick has a problem. One that gets worse every time the San Francisco 49ers' quarterback faces the Seattle Seahawks. He saves his worst games for the Seahawks. On a night when 49ers CEO Jed York ripped the team's showing as "unacceptable" and apologized to fans on Twitter, Kaepernick regressed in the face of the defending Super Bowl champions as the 49ers lost 19-3. No word on if he used his social media skills to connect with fans.

I waved bye to them.” Quarterback Russell Wilson: “We came out with our boxing gloves on.

Rapid Reaction: Seattle Seahawks

SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- A few thoughts on the Seattle Seahawks' 19-3 victory over the San Francisco 49ers Thursday at Levi’s Stadium: What it means: The Seahawks improved to 8-4, winning for the fifth time in the past six games. Seattle now is 12-1 in prime-time games since Pete Carroll became the head coach. It was the first road win against the 49ers since 2008, but Seattle has won four of the past five meetings. Game ball: San Francisco quarterback Colin Kaepernick must see Seattle cornerback Richard Sherman in his nightmares.

Eagles defense shuts down DeMarco Murray, Tony Romo

ARLINGTON, Texas -- The scorch marks left by Aaron Rodgers were still there. Every member of the Eagles defense could probably close his eyes and still hear the footballs whistling past them from that 53-20 blowout. Two weeks later, they had to come to Dallas and face another high-powered offense complete with Tony Romo, Dez Bryant, DeMarco Murray and a line that allows them all to thrive. “Obviously, you knew you’re going up against DeMarco Murray, leading the National Football League in rushing,” Eagles coach Chip Kelly said.

Rapid Reaction: San Francisco 49ers

SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- A few thoughts on the San Francisco 49ers' 19-3 loss to the Seattle Seahawks at Levi's Stadium Thursday night: What it means: The 49ers' playoff chances took a mighty hit with the demoralizing defeat, and the Seahawks seem primed to defend their Super Bowl championship in the postseason. The Seahawks dominated the Niners in all aspects of the game, and the home team was actually booed off the field at halftime. Colin Kaepernick had perhaps the worst outing of his career, as, with less than two minutes to play, he was limited to just 90 yards through the air on 12-of-25 passing with two interceptions, and multiple overthrows and underthrows.

LeSean McCoy calls shot, outduels DeMarco Murray

ARLINGTON, Texas -- LeSean McCoy was furious with himself. He had the ball with two hands and then he didn't. A helmet knocked the ball loose. The Dallas Cowboys recovered it at the Philadelphia Eagles' 13-yard line. Early in the third quarter, it was the break the Cowboys needed to get back in this game. "I was really angry and I never get like that when I fumble," McCoy said. "It happens. It's part of the game." So McCoy made a promise: "Give me a little hole, and I promise you I'll score," he said.

Cowboys must seize this December opportunity

ARLINGTON, Texas -- The Dallas Cowboys remain an 8-8 team until they prove otherwise. That might seem like a slap in the face of a team that won six straight games after a Week 1 loss and sat down to Thanksgiving dinner with an 8-4 record despite being on the wrong end of a 33-10 rout by their NFC East rival Philadelphia Eagles. So be it. This isn’t the time for pats on the butt. It’s time for harsh truths to be told. And they are respected voices in the locker room anxious to do so.

49ers running out of time vs. Seattle

The 49ers are on the ropes against Seattle. A fourth field goal by the Seahawks’ Steven Hauschka gave Seattle a 19-3 lead with about 10 minutes left in regulation on Thursday night. Given the struggles of the 49ers’ offense, a 16-point deficit seems mountainous. San Francisco mustered just 115 yards on 38 plays through three…

Cowboys defense comes up short

ARLINGTON, Texas -- The problems the Cowboys were able to avoid on defense for a majority of the season were finally revealed on Thanksgiving Day. A lack of pass rush. No playmakers in the secondary. No elite players overall. The Cowboys let go of elite defensive end DeMarcus Ware (release) and quality pass-rushing defensive tackle Jason Hatcher (free agency) this offseason. What was left for defensive coordinator Rod Marinelli was a scrappy group, and for the bulk of three months during this 2014 season it played well.
