49ers Make Just Enough Plays, Hold Off Seahawks
Frank Gore ran for 116 yards and the 49ers (5-2) took over sole possession of first place in the NFC West by making just enough plays to win this defense-first game, featuring two teams allowing fewer than 16 points per game.
Walker's score was San Francisco's first touchdown in seven quarters after an embarrassing 26-3 loss to the New York Giants on Sunday in a lopsided rematch of the NFC championship game.
Smith went 14 of 23 for 140 yards in another subpar performance.
NFC rushing leader Marshawn Lynch finished with 103 yards for Seattle (4-3).
Seahawks Linebacker Smith Out With Concussion
Seattle Seahawks linebacker Malcolm Smith left Thursday night's game at San Francisco with a concussion.
Smith went down when he made a hard, helmet-first tackle on 49ers return man Ted Ginn Jr. on the opening kickoff and was helped off the field. The Seahawks later announced that Smith would not return to the game.
The teams came into the divisional game tied for first place in the NFC West with 4-2 records.
