SANTA CLARA, Calif. - At midfield, Richard Sherman cradled a game ball in his right hand and took a chomp out of a turkey leg with his left.Seattles do-everything, unguarded cornerback certainly earned his postgame feast after a two-interception night that kept the defending Super Bowl champion Seahawks right in the NFC West race with a 19-3 win against the San Francisco 49ers on Thursday.Just like 10 months earlier with that game-sealing deflection in the end zone during the NFC championship game, Sherman was in the middle of all the big plays. With Michael Crabtree the target again, too.Sherman set up the only touchdown of the game with another key defensive play in this heated rivalry, then made a second interception with the 49ers driving late, and the Seahawks ended a five-game losing streak on San Franciscos home field.The second one was pretty entertaining. I was laughing the whole time, Sherman said. They threw it. I said, Way to be, way to be.Sherman and Crabtree were at the centre of the decisive play in Januarys NFC title game, when Sherman tipped the ball to Malcolm Smith for an interception with less than a minute remaining in the Seahawks 23-17 victory. Sherman later called Crabtree mediocre.Asked about Crabtree on Thursday, Sherman quipped: History? What history?The Seahawks kept Crabtree and quarterback Colin Kaepernick off balance all night.He said he was throwing to the open man. He didnt care who was out there, Sherman said of Kaepernick. I was the open man.Russell Wilson threw a 13-yard touchdown pass to Robert Turbin in the first quarter, and the Seahawks (8-4) won by the same score as their victory over first-place Arizona five days earlier.Big wins, division opponents, and these games count as two to me, safety Earl Thomas said. Were playing together, man. Thats whats so powerful. ... It felt good, it felt like we were alive.Here are five things of note from the Seahawks first visit to new $1.3 billion Levis Stadium:BIG-GAME SHERMAN: It was 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh who turned Sherman into a defensive back during his days at Stanford. Now, hes one of the best.Sherman had the fourth two-interception game of his career with his 22nd and 23rd picks since 2011, most in the NFL.Might these games mean just a little more to Sherman?It could, Seahawks outside linebacker Bruce Irvin said. That was his college coach, the Crabtree incident last year. Im pretty sure beating the Niners means a lot more to him than the rest of us.ANGRY OWNER: In the waning moments with thousands of red seats already empty, 49ers CEO Jed York posted on Twitter: Thank you (hashtag)49ersfaithful for coming out strong tonight. This performance wasnt acceptable. I apologize for that.Kaepernick, whose team has reached three straight NFC title games, couldnt argue. San Francisco (7-5) had a three-game winning streak snapped.Its not acceptable, he said. We didnt perform well. We have a much higher standard for ourselves. ... We have to win out in order to have a shot to get into the playoffs.Even general manager Trent Baalkes daughter, Cassie, apparently got into the Twitter discussion about the teams struggles, calling out offensive co-ordinator Greg Roman. The tweet was quickly removed.Greg Roman can take a hike..the 49ers dont want you no more, the tweet said.NO-SHOW OFFENSE: Left tackle Joe Staley didnt mince words about how awful San Franciscos offence was.We had zero good plays. Zero, Staley said.The 49ers were held to three points or fewer for the first time since a 29-3 Week 2 loss at Seattle last year. And they still must face the Seahawks in 17 days at CenturyLink Field.Kaepernick had the second-lowest passer rating of his career at 36.7, with his only lower mark a 20.1 at Seattle last year. Kaepernick was 16 of 29 for 121 yards, and the 49ers were outgained 379-164.Weve got to reboot, come back and win them all, Harbaugh said.WHAT HOME FIELD? Much of the crowd went home early, so it hardly felt like much of an advantage for the 49ers with any kind of additional noise level.Nothing like what Seattle is used to with its deafening 12th Man. Sherman not only criticized the home crowd for leaving early, but also for yelling vulgar insults throughout. He said someone tossed a bottle as the Seahawks left the field after the game.It didnt matter if we were on the road or not, Thomas said. We silenced the crowd.PENALTY FEST: This one could have been far more lopsided.Seattle committed 14 penalties for 105 yards, including an offensive pass interference by Turbin that negated Paul Richardsons 7-yard touchdown catch midway through the third quarter.Other than this game being a penalty game we pretty much did what were able to do, so it was really good, coach Pete Carroll said. All I can tell you is were working at it. Were playing really hard and really aggressive, so its kind of like last year. Were pretty good at leading and last year, too, in penalties.___AP NFL website: and Zapatillas Adidas ZX 700 Mujer . - Even with a new coach, the Denver Nuggets still love to push the basketball.

Theyre also making plays -- and Frank Kaminsky came up two huge ones to beat No. 15 Iowa on Saturday. Kaminsky had 21 points and a crucial late steal as Wisconsin won 79-74 for its fifth straight win after a 1-5 stretch marked by poor shooting. Sam Dekker added 15 points and 11 rebounds for the Badgers (22-5, 9-5 Big Ten), who swept the season series and moved a half-game ahead of the Hawkeyes (19-7, 8-5) in the Big Ten standings. "We like to get into our classroom and in the gym and teach guys things. Show them film, work with them," Ryan said. "Frank is one of those guys thats doing a heck of a job on his learning curve. Hes really been pretty sharp." No one was sharper than Kaminsky in the final 36 seconds. Josh Oglesbys jumper with 1:01 left put Iowa up 72-71, but Kaminsky answered with a jumper that gave Wisconsin a one-point lead. Kaminsky then stripped Iowas Roy Devyn Marble under the basket and hit two free throws as the Badgers went up 75-72 with 24.5 seconds left. "He was trying to make a play, and he presented the ball and I just hit it out of his hands. Thats one of those plays where its kind of up to the (referee) to see what theyre going to call. I thought I got it clean," Kaminsky said of the steal. "Im just happy it came out in our favour." Marble had 21 points and 11 assists for the Hawkeyes, who lost their third home game in four tries. Marble could have milked the shot clock down to just over a second on the games biggest play. He instead attacked the rim and paid for it with a turnover that the Hawkeyes didnt recover from. "You call a play and then hes got to read it. Thats what he did," Iowa coach Fran McCaffery said. This was just the second game in two weeks for Iowa. The Hawkeyes were off ahead of last Saturdays 82-70 win at Penn State, and Tuesdays postponement at Indiana gave the Hawkeyes an extra week off. After a ratheer rusty start, Iowa asserted itself in the second half.dddddddddddd Marble hit a 3 and Aaron White followed with a strong drive to the hoop that put the Hawkeyes ahead 62-58 with 6:27 left. The Badgers seemed flummoxed at times by Iowas zone defence, scoring just 20 points in the first 16 minutes of the second half. Still, Wisconsin tied it at 66-all with 3:18 left on a three-point play by Nigel Hayes, and freshman Bronson Koenigs jumper put the Badgers ahead 71-70 with 1:21 left. "Hes a good player. Youre going to see a lot more of him over the next few years," Ryan said of Koenig, who had a career-high 12 points. Iowa was forced to make a rare lineup change. Forward Zach McCabe started in place of Melsahn Basabe, who was limited to just a minute because of illness. Basabe is one of Iowas top interior defenders, and the Badgers took advantage of his absence early on. Wisconsin hit 12 of its first 16 shots, and Dekkers 3 put the Badgers ahead 34-24. Wisconsin shot 57 per cent from the field in the first half, and Koenig matched his previous career high of 10 points in just 10 minutes as the Badgers led 40-31. But Wisconsin missed its first six shots after the break and Iowa eventually retook the lead, 52-51, with 10:55 left. Oglesby matched a season high with 17 points for Iowa. But White was held to just four points, and McCabes 3-point attempt with less than 20 seconds left and the Hawkeyes down 3 never reached the rim. "It didnt come out of his hand cleanly, but he was wide open," McCaffery said of McCabe. "I dont think hell make any excuses." Kaminsky shares Ryans assertion that shot-making has keyed Wisconsins recent surge. But Kaminsky added that the belief that those shots are going to fall has been whats really reinvigorated the Badgers over the past three weeks. "Having the confidence to step up and take those shots is back. I think we had that at the start of the season. It kind of went away for a little bit, and now I think we have that back," Kaminsky said.
