It took nine years, but the San Francisco 49ers finally got some payback on Thursday night for the Seattle Seahawks feasting on turkey after a win at Levi's Stadium in 2014. The Seahawks' 19-3 win over the 49ers on Thanksgiving in 2014 was the last time either team played on Thanksgiving before Thursday night, and after that game then-Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson and cornerback Richard Sherman dug into the postgame turkey at the 50-yard line of Levi's Stadium at a time when the rivalry between the two teams was at a peak.

San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Jauan Jennings only had one catch for seven yards on Thanksgiving night against the Seattle Seahawks, but it was a big one.

On a crucial 3rd-and-7 from Seattle's 25-yard line, Jennings received a pass from quarterback Brock Purdy. Initially appearing to be stopped short of the first-down marker, the receiver fought for the needed yards, causing some missed tackles and dragging rookie cornerback Devon Witherspoon along with him.
