49ers strip-sack Seahawks’ Russell Wilson, DeForest Buckner returns fumble for TD
With the offense continuing to struggle, the San Francisco 49ers’ defense has taken it upon itself to put some points on the board. Defensive end DeForest Buckner was more than up to the task against Russell Wilson and the Seattle Seahawks.

The play could not have come at a more ideal time since the Seahawks were seemingly on the verge of pulling away in this crucial NFC West matchup. Fortunately, the touchdown from DeForest Buckner has now once again made it anyone’s game heading into the final stretch.
It is no secret that the 49ers offense has endured its fair share of struggle against this stingy Seahawks defense. Although their own defense has embraced the challenge of the one-upmanship, quarterback Jimmy Garopplo will need to find a way to come through at some point if they are to keep their perfect record intact.
