49ers LB Dre Greenlaw gets clutch pick on Seahawks’ Russell Wilson in OT
It’s a tense moment at Levi’s Stadium as the battle between the San Francisco 49ers and the visiting Seattle Seahawks approached its climax. Everyone was silent as the Seahawks were dangerously close to the end zone to take the lead. Fortunately for the fans, rookie linebacker Dre Greenlaw had other plans.
He managed to complete an all-important interception that gives the ball back to the hosts during such an important time.

Russell Wilson was quite careless with the pass. He had a good idea when he threw for Jacob Hollister during the team’s second-and-5 drive in the middle of overtime. However, he underestimated Greenlaw’s 6’2″ frame and 33-inch vertical to throw such a pass his way. He did more damage with the interception as he made a 50-yard run to the Seahawks’ own 45-yard line.
The 49ers are in a position to succeed thanks to their youth. Chase McLaughlin extended the game with his game-tying field goal; Greenlaw, a fifth-round selection out of Arkansas, gave them a wonderful situation for the offense to finish.
