The Seahawks sport a 9-1 record against the 49ers over the team's past 10 matchups, including a 23-17 win in the 2013 NFC Championship paving the way to the Seahawks first Super Bowl, and a 19-3 win on the road in San Francisco on Thanksgiving night that started the "unofficial" end of the Jim Harbaugh-Colin Kaepernick era.
It ultimately took his unique ability to escape and improvise to for the Seahawks to beat a team that still hasn't scored a touchdown this season. "They catch a ball on him and he isn't turning, his eyes wide, shocked, confused, frustrated. We just keep kind of hoping to see it continue and I think we got something". "We had been down there a few times earlier in the game and missed our opportunities there, so this was all we got". Wilson was harassed all game against the Packers and was sacked three times. He was 23 of 39 passing for 198 yards. The rushing attack was effective when used, with running back Carlos Hyde averaging five yards a carry.
At halftime, he was 8 of 14 for 47 yards with the interception, a third-down sack and a 33.9 passer rating.
Richardson caught the game-winning grab after suffering a compound dislocation of his finger, which he had sewn up before returning. Lane said officials never told him what he had specifically done saying he only heard the same explanation that was announced. It was such a close game, decided by just three points, so it makes sense that the defense would be a real factor in the end.
"I'm not happy at all".
With the Seahawks driving deep into San Francisco territory late in the game, Arik Armstead and Aaron Lynch both had chances to grab Wilson on third down but couldn't. The S.F. organization and its medical staff haven't commented fully on the situation yet, but the team expects him to miss several games and has signed a replacement at the position (Elijah Lee). That's why I feel like we did come to play. Hyde later spun away from traffic and broke free for a 27-yard gain. Don't be surprised if we see a lot of read option looks this week to try to get those San Francisco defensive linemen thinking. Armstrong returned to his role in the 49ers' base defense in the second half. With the game coming up on Sunday, there have been questions on whether Sherman will be ready to go on game day against the 49ers.
Wilson overcame a poor passing performance on a rainy afternoon to put together a 10-play, 82-yard drive that included several scrambles for first downs before he threw the go-ahead touchdown pass to Richardson with 7:06 remaining. The bulk of the team's carries went to rookie Chris Carson (six).
"It's only two games".
"We'll see how that fits together", Carroll said. Seattle is still trying to find the best use for Eddie Lacy, who had just five carries for 3 yards in the opener.
Reuben Foster managed to avoid a major injury during the first quarter of the season opener against the Panthers but sustained a high-ankle sprain, he remains sidelined for Sunday's game. Even Wilson was greeted with a cascade of boos following consecutive third-quarter possessions where Seattle went three-and-out.
Graham had his worst game as a Seahawk on Sunday. It was a surprise absence as Lacy had not appeared on any injury reports.
