49ers clinch NFC West, No. 1 seed on incredible tackle after inexplicable delay of game penalty dooms Seahawks

Amid the madness, the one easy answer at the end of Sunday night’s game was that the San Francisco 49ers emerged as NFC West champions and the No. 1 seed in the NFC with an unbelievable win over the Seattle Seahawks.

And now, the madness.

The final minutes of Sunday night’s game were ridiculous. Russell Wilson made a ton of clutch plays after the Seahawks appeared dead, trailing 26-14 with less than four minutes left. Trailing 26-21 in the final seconds, the Seahawks took an inexplicable, horrendous delay of game penalty when they had the ball at the 1-yard line.
