Around The NFC West - Week 12

Every team in the division lost on Sunday


Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson and the offense had a tough time in a 14-5 loss in Tampa Bay.


Last time out: Dolphins 31, 49ers 24

Record: 1-10 overall, 1-3 in division

Snapshot: Ndamukong Suh tackled Colin Kaepernick at the Miami 2-yard-line as time expired to give Miami the win. The 49ers scored the last 10 points of the fourth quarter and nearly added another touchdown which would have forced overtime.

Notable: San Francisco lost its tenth straight game, but there were some bright spots. Kaepernick finished 29-of-46 for 296 yards with three touchdowns and an interception while adding 10 carries for 113 yards. The worst-ranked run defense in the NFL held Jay Ajayi to 18 carries for 45 yards.

Quotable: "You have to get in the end zone. Ultimately that's what it comes down to. We had a pass play called. I thought we had a seam to be able to get in there, and I didn't make it in." – Kaepernick on falling short of the tying score

Injury update:Linebacker Shayne Skov left the game with a knee injury. Wide receiver Quinton Patton suffered a concussion.

Next up: The 49ers travel to play the Bears in Week 13


Last time out: Buccaneers 14, Seahawks 5

Record: 7-3-1 overall, 1-1-1 in division

Snapshot: Tampa Bay wideout Mike Evans caught a pair of touchdown passes in the first quarter and the defense did the rest. Seattle amassed just 245 total yards and turned the ball over three times as it failed to get into the end zone.

Notable: The Seahawks picked up a safety and a field goal in the second quarter to pull within nine points, but didn't score in the second half. The loss snapped a streak of 98 straight games in which the Seahawks were either leading or within seven points of the opponent in the fourth quarter.

Quotable:  "We did not play like we play, it didn't feel like it. That starts right with me. If everybody kind of plays a little bit off, then that's me." Seahawks coach Pete Carroll, via, on the struggles in the game.

Injury update: Safety Earl Thomas missed his first career game with a hamstring injury.

Next up: The Seahawks will host the Panthers in Week 13


Last time out: Saints 49, Rams 21

Record: 4-7 overall, 2-1 in division

Snapshot: The Saints scored 42 of the game's final 49 points to shake off an early deficit and cruise to the win. Drew Brees threw for 310 yards and four touchdowns while Mark Ingram added 146 rushing yards and a score.

Notable: Jared Goff flashed some potential, throwing for 214 yards and three touchdowns in his second game under center. Running back Todd Gurley continued his season-long struggle, carrying the ball 13 times for only 50 yards.

Quotable:  "Everything they did was clicking. We didn't have an answer for them. Collectively, it probably would be the worst game of my career." – Rams cornerback Trumaine Johnson, via, on the poor defensive effort.

Key stat:2. Touchdown runs on fourth down for the Saints in the second quarter, which gave them the lead.

Next up: The Rams travel to play the Patriots in Week 13
