http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/preview?gid=20051120025The Seattle Seahawks look to further solidify their stranglehold on first place in the NFC West and record their longest winning streak in 21 years when they visit the San Francisco 49ers.
Seattle built its NFC West lead to three games with a 31-16 victory last Sunday over second-place St. Louis. San Francisco and Arizona have fallen five games back of the Seahawks, whose season sweep of the Rams give them the tiebreaker if those teams finish with identical records.
"It's a really cool thing when you can see the changing of the guard," said running back Shaun Alexander, who rushed for 165 yards and three touchdowns on a season-high 33 carries against St. Louis.
The Seahawks, seeking their second straight division title, have won five in a row. A victory Sunday will give the team its longest winning streak since an eight-game run during the 1984 season, when it finished with a franchise-best 12-4 record.
