But overtime was a different story.

Pressure mounts in extra session

After Dre Greenlaw’s red-zone interception of Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson set the 49ers up near midfield, San Francisco’s offense put McLaughlin in position to be the hero again.

With 3:10 remaining in overtime, McLaughlin set up from the same distance facing the same end zone as his kick to end regulation. This time, a kick would win the game.

This time, he missed. Badly.

Kick lands in end zone tunnel

With a good snap and a good hold, McLaughlin punched the ball low and to the left with a kick that never had a chance of finding the uprights.

Instead, it landed in the tunnel to the left of the end zone.

Wilson and the Seahawks would eventually take advantage of their final chance as Seattle kicker Jason Myers converted where McLaughlin couldn’t, hitting a 42-yard field goal to secure a 27-24 victory.

Meanwhile McLaughlin’s chance to live in 49ers lore landed off target in the Levi’s Stadium end zone tunnel.
