Niners Drop Season Finale To Seahawks, Finish 2-14 For Fourth Time; Can Chip, Balky Trent

At Santa Clara, California:

Quarterback Russell Wilson threw for 258 yards and a touchdown (to Luke Willson) on Sunday as the playoff-bound Seattle Seahawks (10-5-1) bounced back from an 11-point deficit to top the San Francisco 49ers (2-14-0) 25-23 on the road in the regular-season finale for both clubs.

After the contest, the Niners, who tied a single-season record with 14 defeats (they also finished 2-14 in 1978, 1979, and 2004) dismissed head coach Chip Kelly and general manager Trent Baalke.
