More than once on Sunday night in Seattle, it appeared the 49ers were going to end up on top.

In a way, Dixon scored twice on the series. His first leaping effort, on 3rd-and-goal from the one-yard line, was ruled a touchdown on the field before it was reversed via replay.
Dixon came to the sideline while the third-down play was being reviewed; he heard Jim Harbaugh say, "I'm glad somebody went over the top."
"He called (the same play) again. I said, 'I'm going over the top again," Dixon said. "The first one was a warmup. The second one I knew I had to get it in, jump as high as I (could)."
"We have been on the (basketball) court," Dixon said. "He might say different, but I think it's me."
