(SportsNetwork. David DeCastro Jersey .com) - On Thanksgiving night, the Seattle Seahawks dealt the rival San Francisco 49ers playoff chances a huge blow. Meeting for the second time in three weeks, the Seahawks can just about finish off the Niners and better their own standing in the race for the playoffs as the two NFC West residents clash on Sunday in Seattle. San Francisco had won three straight and was keeping pace in a tight divisional race ahead of a holiday matchup at home with Seattle. The Niners were in no mood to celebrate afterwards as they were held to just 164 yards of offense and turned the ball over three times in a 19-3 loss. San Francisco quarterback Colin Kaepernick struggled to just 121 yards passing and was picked off twice by Seattle cornerback Richard Sherman. The Seahawks, meanwhile, got 236 yards passing from Russell Wilson and he threw a touchdown pass to Robert Turbin, while running back Marshawn Lynch ran for 104 yards to compliment the defensive shutdown. Seattle has won four of its past five versus the Niners, including playoffs, and three straight at home. Of course, the Seahawks defeat the 49ers 23-17 in last seasons NFC Championship Game before besting Denver in the Super Bowl. San Francisco failed to get on track this past Sunday despite visiting an Oakland team that had just one victory on the season. The offense again struggled and the Raiders controlled the clock in picking up a 24-13 win. Kaepernick went 18-for-33 for 174 yards with one touchdown and two interceptions for the 49ers, who failed to reach 20 points scored in a game for the sixth time in seven outings. Oakland outgained San Francisco 330-248. We didnt play well enough to win, San Francisco head coach Jim Harbaugh said. The Raiders made plays and got stops in crucial situations. At 7-6, the Niners are two games behind second-place Seattle and three behind the NFC West-leading Arizona Cardinals. That has San Francisco on the verge of missing the playoffs for the first time in Harbaughs four seasons, with the club having reached at least the NFC title game in his first three years. Seattle has used a solid defensive effort and enough offense to rip off three straight victories and six in its past seven. The Seahawks stayed in the win column last weekend, picking up a 24-14 road win over the Philadelphia Eagles. Wilson threw a pair of touchdown passes and also ran for a score, while Lynch rushed 23 times for 86 yards -- going over 1,000 yards for the fourth season in a row. Lynch and Doug Baldwin both caught scoring passes, with Baldwin totaling five receptions for 97 yards. Were high on confidence because we put the work in during the week, said Wilson. The Seahawks defense, meanwhile, held Chip Kellys fast-paced Eagles offense to just 139 yards and allowed the Seattle offense to hold the ball for a franchise-record 41 minutes and 56 seconds. This is the way we want to play. It hasnt been that way all season long, but it has seemed to come together here, said Seattle head coach Pete Carroll. Well try to ride it. Its not how you start, its how you finish and were going to see if we can finish in good fashion. WHAT TO WATCH FOR San Franciscos struggles have run side-by-side with Kaepernick, and the quarterback faces a tough challenge in trying to get on track. The 49ers are 15-1 when Kaepernick has posted a passer rating of 100 or better, including playoffs. But he has been held under that mark in seven straight games and has five interceptions to just two touchdown passes in his last three. Kaepernick hasnt thrown for more than 300 yards in seven consecutive games and has been held under 200 in three of the past four. I dont think I could be too hard on myself, said Kaepernick. I have a very high expectation for everything I do. And when I go out and compete, I expect myself to make every play. And when I dont, it is frustrating for myself. So, to me, its something that I have to be able to use that frustration in a different way to make sure that Im productive when Im out there. One way to be productive would be to keep the ball out of Shermans hands. Id say hes one of (the toughest cornerbacks to face). He does a very good job at what hes coached to do and it makes it tough on our receivers, makes it tough on quarterbacks, said Kaepernick. The Seahawks defense as a whole has been tough as of late. Seattle has not allowed more than 204 yards in each of its past three games and ranks first in both total defense (274.5 yards per game) and pass defense (190.4 YPG). Seattle has outscored its opponents 62-20 in the past three weeks and is giving up 18.1 points per game, second best in the NFL, while recording eight interceptions in the last seven games. In general, guys understand what is asked of them so that they understand the scheme really well, said Carroll. They know what their responsibilities are ... to the point of that they can go to the next level of what the offense is doing, the strategy, tactics that theyre deploying, and then take all of that information and make use of it. Seattles secondary will try to shut down Niners receiver Anquan Boldin, who leads the team with 72 catches and is 103 yards shy of his seventh career 1,000-yard season. Wilson, meanwhile, is 3-0 at home versus the Niners, including playoffs, with a 103.9 passer rating. He has 37 touchdowns to 11 picks in 24 career starts at home. Though San Francisco is without injured linebackers NaVarro Bowman and Patrick Willis, outside rusher Aldon Smith has six sacks in his last six versus the Seahawks, including two in the last meeting in Seattle. Rookie linebacker Aaron Lynch has a sack in five of his past seven and inside LB Chris Borland, also a rookie, has 91 tackles and two picks in his previous seven games. However, fellow linebacker Ahmad Brooks had a string of 60 straight starts come to an end versus the Raiders because he missed a team meeting earlier in the week. and did not play in the game despite being active. San Francisco also is hoping that cornerback Chris Culliver can play after hurting his knee versus the Raiders, while Seahawks center Max Unger is looking to return after a three-game absence caused by a high-ankle sprain. OVERALL ANALYSIS Rumors of Harbaughs possible offseason departure from the Niners continue to grow louder as the club has struggled and the coach desperately needs Kaepernick to turn things around should the club keep its faint playoff chances alive. A road game in Seattle isnt the best place for that to happen and Carroll isnt ready to take the Niners lightly. We dont see this game any different -- we see the same players, coaches, style, and we remember whats going on and how theyve been, noted Seattles coach. Theyre very close to being how they need to be at the end of the year and nobody knows how this story is going to be written at this point. We count on them being a very difficult team to play as always and nothing has changed. That should hold true for Seattle as well, with Wilson staying perfect at home in his career versus the Niners.

Selanne is returning to the Anaheim Ducks for his 21st and final NHL season, the 43-year-old Finnish forward announced Friday. After spending most of the summer contemplating his future, he released a humorous video on YouTube confirming hell be back for one more run at another Stanley Cup title. He also hopes to play for Finland in his record sixth Olympics in Sochi in February. Selanne agreed to a one-year deal worth $2 million -- and for the first time in his now-annual flirtations with retirement, the Finnish Flash insists he wont be back. "Now itll be easier to take advantage of every day," Selanne said. "I think its good for everybody. My family, too. Theyve been asking some questions over the years, and now everybody knows." Two weeks before the Ducks open training camp, Selanne confirmed hes still hungry for another season as the NHLs oldest active player. The right wing has flirted with retirement every year since Anaheim won the Stanley Cup in 2007, always electing to return to the Ducks. He is the 15th-leading scorer in NHL history with 1,430 points, and his 675 career goals are 11th-most in league history. Selanne has spent parts of 14 seasons with Anaheim in an NHL career than began in Winnipeg in 1992. "He clearly still has passion for the game and cant wait to get started," Anaheim general manager Bob Murray said. "We are so pleased that Teemu will end his career where he belongs." And four years after Selanne insisted he was done with international hockey at the Vancouver Games, he confirmed he would play in Sochi if selected to the Finnish team. He is the top scorer in Olympic hockey history with 37 points in 31 games dating back to the Albertville Games in 1992. "Thats a big bonus for the next season," Selanne said. "Obviously, this could be my sixth Olympics, so its something Im very proud of. Thats absolutely my goal, for sure." Hockey fans will have one more season to enjoy the speedy forwards sublime goal-scoring skill and effervescent personality -- something he showed off in a video presentation he wrote himself. Selannes announcement video shows him struggling at golf, eventually throwing his bag into a lake in frustration. When he realizes his phone is in the bag, he jumps into the lake to retrieve it before calling Murray. "Im coming back," Selanne says. "Yeah, but this is it. This is my final one." The video was filmed on the course in Coto de Caza, the gated community in Orange County where Selannes family lives year-round. His acting skills aside, Selanne already has created an indelible mark on his sport ever since he burst onto the NHL scene with the Winnipeg Jets as a 22-year-old phenom, scoring a rookie-record 76 goals and leading the NHL in scoring. He has led the NHL in goals three times -- including 1999, when he won the inaugural Richard Troophy -- while scoring at least 20 goals in 17 seasons. Sean Davis Jersey. He also played for San Jose and Colorado between two stints in Anaheim, where he is a beloved fan favourite and the franchises career scoring leader with 961 points in 902 games. With 675 goals, Selanne is six behind 41-year-old New Jersey forward Jaromir Jagr for 10th place in NHL history, and is third on the NHLs career power-play goals list with 251. With strong seasons, both veterans could catch Mark Messier (694), Steve Yzerman (692) or Mario Lemieux (690) on the career goals list. Selanne realizes the grind in front of him with a packed NHL schedule around the Olympic break. He expects to preserve his health by taking a few games off during the season, as he did a few times last year during the lockout-shortened slate. "I didnt really want to sit out for a game (last season), but I realized afterward its going to be pretty good for me," Selanne said. "Well sit down where the schedule is really hectic, and maybe I can take some nights off. Last year it was almost impossible to get the recovery you needed." Selanne met with Ducks coach Bruce Boudreau before making his decision, coming away confident hell be a key contributor in Anaheim. Selannes role diminished slightly last year with the Ducks, who won the Pacific Division title before losing in the first round of the playoffs. He had 12 goals and 12 assists in 46 games, but still displayed his usual speed and goal-scoring acumen despite decreases in ice time and production late in the season. After their meeting, Selanne is confident Boudreau has an important role for him this fall. "I never want to get any promises, because I know a coach cant really do that," Selanne said. "We have a great group of young guys coming. Its a good competition here right now, and everyone has to earn the ice time and the power play. I know I can do it. I just need to be on the same page with the coach, and thats what happened. Im very happy about it." Selanne took a pay cut from last seasons $4.5 million salary for his final return to the Ducks, who committed $135 million to cornerstone forwards Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry in eight-year contract extensions last season. Anaheim then traded goal-scoring forward Bobby Ryan to Ottawa, but retained the core of an exciting, up-tempo team that finally played up to its potential in the regular season. The Ducks post-season loss to Detroit, dropping Game 7 on home ice, only hardened Selannes desire to return for one last shot. "I felt, like everyone in our locker room, we have a better team than this," Selanne said. "We have unfinished business. We know we can do better, and thats the main reason Im still here. We have a good team and a lot of things going on. If we had a bad team and a bad season, it would be easy to say, Thanks for everything, and go on, but I feel I can do better, we can do better."
