WR Sammy Watkins (new LA Rams acquisition) provided 25.60 points.

Female Free #2: This was a close battle.The top two teams went head-to-head this week with BrownLee squeezing out a win by a mere .56 of a point. This keeps her in the lead over Team TriSARAHtops.
It was ugly, in many ways unsatisfying, but it was a win.
It started out very promising and looked like the Seahawks were going to dominate. On opening possession, the offense sustained a drive that took 16 plays and 6:22 of the first quarter, which ended in a 25 yard field goal by Blair Walsh.
The defense was dominant in the first quarter as well, keeping San Francisco from converting a first down on their first drive. After an exchange of 3 and outs, the Seattle defense capitalized as Bobbie Wagner intercepted a Brian Hoyer pass. There was a fumble on the play which Richard Sherman recovered at the SF 36. This set up a second field goal for Seattle, which made the score 6 – 0.
In the second quarter, Carlos Hyde found some daylight and took advantage for a 61 yard run that ended at the Seattle 22 yard line. After
the long gain, San Francisco was unable to go further than the 22 and kicked a field goal. Seattle still on top 6-3.
Seattle’s offense was unable to gather any more momentum in the first half. Russell Wilson was under pressure and sacked, key drops from Tyler McEvoy and CJ Procise and holding penalties all combined to stymie the offense for the remainder of the first half.
