SEATTLE - Richard Sherman and Russell Wilson sat at a table placed on the San Francisco 49ers logo at the 50-yard-line, chomping down on turkey in a made-for-TV moment. Gareth Bale Real Madrid Jersey .It was the latest jab in whats been the best rivalry in the NFC.That rivalry between Seattle and San Francisco, and what its been the last three seasons, could be at an end after the Seahawks host the 49ers on Sunday. San Francisco (7-6) must win its final three games and get some help to make the playoffs and continue a remarkable run of success since Jim Harbaugh arrived as head coach.Couple those slim playoff hopes with the uncertainty regarding Harbaughs future in San Francisco and Sunday could be the close of this chapter of the rivalry.Its tough man. The last three years, NFC championship the first year, Super Bowl, NFC championship, and now this year theyre making it difficult for us, San Francisco running back Frank Gore said. Weve had ups and downs. The games we should have won we didnt take control of.The evolution of the rivalry started with Seattle trying to emulate San Francisco, then accomplishing what the 49ers couldnt and winning a Super Bowl. Theyve been among the best teams in the NFC since Harbaugh and Pete Carroll took over their respective teams, but appear headed in opposite directions.While the 49ers are on the brink of playoff elimination, Seattles three-game win streak has it in a position that victories in the final three games would earn the NFC West title.(As) players we have a great respect for those guys, Seattle wide receiver Doug Baldwin said. Its hyped-up more so for the fans. The fans have this negativity toward each other, where the players, we have a mutual respect.Seattle (9-4) put itself in that position of control largely because off Thanksgiving night, a thorough 19-3 win that was so embarrassing for the home team that 49ers CEO Jed York issued a public apology on Twitter to the fans. Adding to the pain, the two interceptions thrown by Colin Kaepernick were both taken away by Sherman, their No. 1 nemesis.Weve definitely helped out (Shermans) stat sheet the past couple games, San Francisco offensive co-ordinator Greg Roman said.Heres what else to watch for as the Seahawks go for a third straight regular-season home win over the 49ers:HOUSE OF HORRORS: The past three trips to Seattle have proven mostly forgettable for the 49ers. It started at the end of the 2012 season when Seattle routed them 42-13. Then in Week 2 of the 2013 season, the Seahawks rolled 29-3.But Sunday will be the first time back in CenturyLink Field for the 49ers since Januarys NFC championship game.It was a great night at the stadium, memorable for the fans, the players, and the coaches because it was a perfect night of championship football and were fortunate to come out on the (winning) end, Carroll said.LOCKDOWN: The past three weeks have been a return to what became the norm for Seattles defence. The Seahawks have allowed 507 combined yards in those games. Thats the fourth fewest allowed by any team during a three-game span since 2006. But none of the other three that allowed fewer yards faced the same level of competition as Seattles wins over the Cardinals (9-1 at the time), 49ers (7-4) and Eagles (9-3).The Seahawks can become the first team since the 2011 Texans to hold three straight teams under 200 total yards against the 49ers.KAPS NIGHTMARE: Kaepernick has never enjoyed playing in Seattle. In his two regular-season starts, Kaepernick has thrown four interceptions, completed 50 per cent of his passes and has a passer rating of 47.1, the lowest at any road stadium. In the NFC championship game, Kaepernick was solid until the fourth quarter, when he threw two interceptions.It is a different atmosphere, but I feel like its like anything you do. The more you do it, the more youre there, the more comfortable you get with it, Kaepernick said. So, when we get up there, this offence should be fully prepared for what to expect.FIND THE QB: San Francisco was able to get pressure on Wilson two weeks ago, but that pass rush was nonexistent last week against Oakland. Derek Carr was sacked only once and had plenty of time to pass most of the game. The 49ers were credited with only two quarterback hits and the lack of pressure allowed Carr to throw for three touchdowns and complete 22 of 28 passes.Cranked up in the pass rush? Its going to be needed, Harbaugh said. I think we have the guys to do it. Look forward to a better performance in that area.___AP Sports Writer Janie McCauley contributed to this report.___AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP_NFL Borja Mayoral Real Madrid Jersey .

Michael Brantley hit a sacrifice fly in the 12th inning and the Indians came back to beat the Minnesota Twins 9-8. Carlos Santana and Jason Giambi homered for the Indians, who won for just the third time in 10 games. Joe Mauer tied a career high with five hits for Minnesota. "When you get a win like today where you go back and forth ... its definitely crucial," said Mike Aviles, who had a pair of RBIs. Nick Swisher and Jason Kipnis singled off Ryan Pressly (3-3) to open the 12th. Swisher moved to third on a fly out and scored easily on Brantleys fly out to centre field. Chris Perez (5-2) blew a save but got the win. Joe Smith earned his second save, including a strikeout of Mauer to end the game. Santana homered off Glen Perkins in the 10th to give Cleveland an 8-7 lead. Mauer responded in the bottom half with a shot off Perez. The Indians, who trail Detroit by six games in the AL Central, were swept at home by the Tigers last week and then lost two of three at home to the Los Angeles Angels. After losing 3-0 to the Twins on Monday, Cleveland has won two straight. The Indians open a three-game series Friday at Oakland before playing three at the Angels. "We just need to keep trying to win series. I think the biggest thing is going game-by-game and hopefully the series will start piling up," Aviles said. Cleveland trailed 7-3 entering the eighth inning. After the first two batters reached base against Casey Fien, Brantley had an RBI single and Giambi followed with a three-run homer that tied it. "Im a strike thrower. Im going to pitch to contact, and today they got me," Fien said. "I left the ball up in the zone to Giambi, and he hurt me." Minnesota starter Kyle Gibson allowed six hits and three earned runs in 5 1-3 innings, the fourth straight start hes failed to go at least six innings. Josh Roenicke, Caleb Thielbar and Jared Burton pitched 1 2-3 innings of scoreless relief before Fien struggled in the eighth. "Caseys been lights out, one of the better setup guyys in our league, since we put him in that role," manager Ron Gardenhire said. Dani Ceballos Real Madrid Jersey. . Looking to build on the confidence gained from pitching one-hit ball in five relief innings last Friday, Cleveland starter Carlos Carrasco allowed 10 hits and four earned runs in 4 1-3 innings. Carrasco, who was recalled from Triple-A Friday, is winless in seven starts this year and hasnt won since June 29, 2011, at Arizona. "Consistently, from start to start he holds his stuff very well, but he just makes too many mistakes. A lot of times you cant get away with one mistake to good hitters. Theres times where he makes one or two or three during an at-bat and hes paying for it," manager Terry Francona said. Mauer, who singled and moved to third on a double by Justin Morneau, scored on a first-inning sacrifice fly by Josh Willingham. Morneau then scored on a double by Oswaldo Arcia. Brain Dozier and Mauer had RBI singles in the second to give Minnesota a 4-0 lead. The Twins went 6 for 13 with runners in scoring position after going 3 for 48 over their last six games. Minnesota entered the game last in the American League, hitting .230 in such situations. Mauer hit a two-run single in the sixth and Chris Colabello an RBI single in the seventh to make it 7-3.
