Kaepernick originally made the eyebrow wager with Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson last week on EA Sports Youtube Channel, while playing the company's new football title, "Madden NFL 25." Prior to the game, Madden’s simulation program predicted that Kaepernick would keep his eyebrow, but Wilson had other plans. Throwing for 142 yards and a touchdown,and getting some serious help from Marshawn Lynch, Wilson guided Seattle to an easy 29-3 win.
Kaepernick, thanks in part to the 49ers aggressive defense, threw three interceptions and was limited to just 127 yards passing. Kaepernick ran for 87 yards to lead the 49ers, but also committed a fumble in what is currently one of his weakest performances since he become the team’s starter last season.
EA Sports seemed to whimsically relish in Kaepernick’s performance, posting photos during the game on their Twitter page of Kaepernick with half an eyebrow on what they called the “Brow Meter.”
