The San Francisco 49ers and the Seattle Seahawks have had a heated rivalry in the past several seasons. After the Seahawks defeated the 49ers 19-3 on Thanksgiving in San Francisco.
Following the game, a table was placed on the 49ers logo in the middle of Levi Stadium. This is a big no-no in sports, as the 49ers are going to remember this for a long time.
“It’s a blessing to be out here,” Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson said to NBC Sports Reporter Michele Tafoya. “We’re playing together and able to play as a team.”
While Wilson has never been one to spark the flames of a rivalry, his corner back Richard Sherman did not mix words.
“I guess it means a little bit,” Sherman added. “Let a sleeping dog lie, or you’re going to get this.”
Sherman then walked off the field with the turkey over his head into the locker room. It is not clear if Sherman will share the turkey with the rest of his Legion of Boom teammates.
This was the second straight year two players received the NBC Madden Player of the Game Awards. Last year, Baltimore Ravens players Jacoby Jones and Justin Tucker were the recipients of the Turkey legs.
