SANTA CLARA, Calif. – Called that week with broken stripes.

One day after Cleveland Browns finished Denver Broncos 11-match victory against them and three days after Los Angeles Chargers stopped at Kansas City Chiefs nine-game hex over them, San Francisco 49ers made it a trifecta Sunday with its 26-23 victory against Seattle Seahawks.

Kicker Robbie Gould’s 36-yard field goal with 3 minutes, 6 seconds left an end to Seattles 10-game winning strike against 49ers, a team that included a loss in the NFC Championship game after the 2013 season and dated to it December 8, 2013, when Niners earlier beat his one-time NFC West Division rivals.

The last loss in the strike came just two weeks ago, when Seahawks walloped San Francisco 43-1

6 in Seattle.

“It means a ton,” said 49’s coach Kyle Shanahan. “Not all of us have been here since 2013, but many of us were here last year. We were all definitely here two weeks ago. It is a division rival. We are also very sick of how we lost two weeks ago. 19659002] “I was very proud of the guys and did not say anything. I just knew it meant a lot to our guys. Especially after two weeks and to the fans and everything since 2013. I hated that I have to answer these questions all week. I would definitely not go for a whole year to do it. This was our last opportunity to finish it and I’m glad we do not need to hear it again. “

Read Shanahan has some concern that his now 4-10 team could bounce back from the last loss and will be ready to play against a Seattle team who would have climbed a playoff spot with a victory that made

Niners cornerback Richard Sherman, the long Seahawks star, said Shanahan made his team “painfully aware of the losing step.” Defensive coordinator Robert Saleh played what Sherman described as a “second team selection band” for their players to make sure they remember what happened in the previous meeting. [19659002] “We took it personally,” replied DeForest Buckner. “They fluttered us embarrassed for two weeks then. Everyone from top to bottom was not happy with it. We knew there would be a dogfight coming this week and especially [because] we just played them two weeks ago. It was a long two weeks, for sure. Everyone wanted to come out and redeem themselves. From start to finish everyone gave just a little more. “

If that was not enough, Shanahan stood up at the team meeting on Saturday night and gave another simple message. Shanahan told Niners that he did not even” tell you everything. If you are not pumped up for this, something is wrong with you. “

The message apparently reasoned.

” Sometimes you need to touch God’s pride, “said Sherman.” You must have some pride. You are an adult man. They went out to be ashamed of you. How should you respond? And I think guys showed how they responded. “

Richard Sherman says it means he defeats his former team but is particularly proud of Nick Mullens who went up with the game on

For Sherman, Sunday’s gain gained even greater importance . After making his first trip back to Seattle in another uniform two weeks ago, Sherman acknowledged that the game had a little more meaning, even though he said it was not “ten days leading up to it.”

Sherman had also hit Seahawks and especially quarterback Russell Wilson in his Thursday conference that week. Last week, Sherman was again in the middle of a battle with Seahawks after Seattle’s defensive end, Frank Clark explained the Sherman time in Seattle.

Sherman left little doubt as to how much he wanted Sunday victory early when he spent a few minutes successfully argue with officials who flagged him against a manifestly illegal contact. After much discussion, that flag was raised.

When the match ended, Sherman celebrated his team, and Shanahan and several teammates mentioned how meaningful the victory was for him.

Ask about him thought that Seahawks might have overlooked Niners considering they had just hit them well two weeks earlier, Sherman expressed pleasure in the idea.

“I doubt much about it,” said Sherman. “I doubt much about it. Just as I’m quite inflammatory on the other side, I’m quite inflammatory on both sides. My truth is not always the truth. Sometimes my comments are used as – I doubt much about Pete [Carroll] a game that I play, and even Russell, they played hard, they played their games, they brought it. It was not as if they played a lackadaisical game, just gave away things. They struggled. Our guys just executed the stretch. We played our tails off. “

49er win did not come without a prize on the big picture. Their fourth victory released them from No. 1 in draft No. 4, with Arizona Cardinals, Oakland Raiders and New York Jets now ahead of them in the pecking order with two games to play.

Still, nobody in Nineer’s playroom cares much about 2019 after they followed in charge and burned footprints and hit a team that had their number so long.

“It’s huge for us,” said Mike McGlinchey. “We are talking about it all the time. Seattle is No. 1 for us in terms of rivalry. We had not hit them for a while. We have many guys in this storage space that this game means a lot because, Sherm, Saleh, all the guys who played there, have been training there. It’s huge for us to get over this puck and build on this in the next two weeks and apparently even next season. “
