SEATTLE, Dec. 24 (UPI) -- David Akers' fourth field goal of the game came late in the fourth quarter Saturday and lifted the San Francisco 49ers past Seattle 19-17.

The decisive field goal was a 39-yarder and capped a game in which Akers set an NFL record with 42 field goals in a single season.

The NFC West champs got 83 rushing yards and a score from Frank Gore over 23 carries. Quarterback Alex Smith went 14-of-26 through the air for 179 yards.

The 49ers (12-3) will earn a first-round bye in the playoffs should Atlanta defeat New Orleans Monday

Marshawn Lynch rushed for 107 yards and a touchdown on 21 carries for Seattle (7-8).

Tarvaris Jackson completed 15-of-28 passes for 163 yards with a TD toss to Doug Baldwin.
