- Seahawks struggled again offensively as a tough 49ers defense, the Seahawks offensive line’s failure to protect QB Russell Wilson or to establish a ground game, and wet weather making passes hard to catch, contributed to offensive ineptitude. It wasn’t until the Seahawks went to a no-huddle offense and Wilson started running, did they score a touchdown and put the game away.
- The 49ers for a second week in a row were unable to score any touchdowns. This was against one of the best defenses in the NFL. However, this is now eight quarters of football without a touchdown for a team that was expected to generate points.
- 49ers had a number of explosive run plays. However they only ran the ball 19 times compared to 27 passes. Considering the wet conditions and their inability to throw the ball against a stellar defense, perhaps Kyle Shanahan should have made a greater commitment to running the ball. This also could have resulted in their defense being on the field less as the Seahawks had the ball for about 13 minutes longer than the 49ers.
