Fred Warner Helps Stops Seahawks TE Short Of Goal Line To Clinch Niners Win
SEATTLE, Wash. – San Francisco linebacker stopped Seattle Seahawks tight end Jacob Hollister inches short of the end zone to secure a win for the 49ers.
Warner’s stop secured the Niners a 26-21 win over the Seahawks at CenturyLink Field on Sunday, December 29.
The 49ers linebacker teamed up with San Francisco’s Dre Greenlaw to halt Hollister’s progress short of the goal line on 4th & Goal after a 4-yard reception from Seattle quarterback Russell Wilson. Officials reviewed the play and ruled that the Seahawks were shy of the yardage needed for the go-ahead score. With Warner’s stop, the 49ers regained possession with nine seconds left. On their next play, the Niners ran a quarterback sneak to run out the clock.
