The 49ers fell to 1-10 at the hands of the Seattle Seahawks at Levi's Stadium on Sunday. It was the 49ers' eighth straight loss to Seattle, dating back to 2014.

It was a one-point game at the half, with the 49ers trailing 7-6. The Seahawks pulled away in the second half, outscoring the 49ers 17-0. Russell Wilson provided most of the offense for Seattle, going 20-of-34 for 228 yards with two touchdowns and an interception to Eric Reid on the game's first play. It was the first time in Wilson's career that he has been intercepted on the first play of a game.

C.J. Beathard got the start for the 49ers and struggled most of the day. He was never able to get comfortable in the pocket, as the fierce Seattle pass rush hit him 13 times and sacked him three times. Beathard finished the day 22-of-38 for 201 yards and an interception. He left the game late after a hit to his knee.

However, the story of this game will undoubtedly be the last sequence.

Jimmy Garoppolo entered the game for Beathard with 1:07 left in the fourth quarter to a rousing ovation. He ran for a first down on his first play and then completed his first two passes.

Garoppolo ended the game with an exclamation point by throwing a 10-yard touchdown pass to wide receiver Louis Murphy. He looked poised in the pocket and scrambled to his left before hitting Murphy near the sideline for the touchdown.

Carlos Hyde struggled to get anything going, rushing for 47 yards on 16 carries. He was the 49ers' leading receiver with seven catches. The running game overall never really got going as the 49ers started the game with five punts on their first six possessions and throwing an interception during the other series.

The defense played well in the first half, holding Seattle to seven points but ultimately couldn't stop Wilson from making plays in the second half. They failed to record a sack but hurried Wilson for much of the day. In addition to his interception, Reid led the team in tackles (7). Reuben Foster was second on the team with six.

The 49ers were penalized seven times for 74 yards, including a questionable pass interference penalty against Dontae Johnson late in the third quarter that gave Seattle 1st-and-goal. The Seahawks proceeded to score a touchdown to make it 21-6 and never looked back.

Still, the story of the game will most definitely be Garoppolo. Head coach Kyle Shanahan will have a decision to make on who to start next Sunday in Chicago.

Next game: December 3rd at Chicago (10 a.m. PST)

Stephen A. Smith says 49ers are champions right now if Aaron Rodgers, not Jimmy Garoppolo, were the QB

By David Bonilla

The Aaron Rodgers to San Francisco 49ers talk is starting early. Maybe nearly a year early. First, Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk explored the idea of the future Hall of Famer joining his hometown team and the organization that passed him up in 2005 for Alex Smith. Now, ESPN's First Take is joining the discussion. Rodgers' days in Green Bay may be numbered after the team selected Jordan Love in the first round of April's draft. After enduring over a month of discussion earlier this offseason surrounding Tom Brady potentially replacing Jimmy Garoppolo in San Francisco, it seems like fans might have to put up with talk about the next possible Garoppolo replacement. That's what analyst Domonique Foxworth, along with ESPN personality Stephen

NFL.com: 49ers' Jimmy Garoppolo among players under the most pressure in 2020

By David Bonilla

In his first full NFL season as a starter, quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo threw for the fourth-most single-season passing yards in franchise history, put up clutch performances in some regular-season nail-biters, and led the team to a division crown and the No. 1 seed in the NFC on the way to a Super Bowl appearance. That's quite a list of accomplishments. So why is Garoppolo ranked No. 5 on NFL.com's recent list of players under the most pressure in 2020? Adam Schein wrote that the 49ers' success couldn't be credited entirely to Garoppolo because of how talented the roster is. The NFL.com columnist calls it the "single best roster" in the

10 quarterbacks earn more than 49ers' Jimmy Garoppolo after Patrick Mahomes' record deal

Does anyone remember way back to when Jimmy Garoppolo became the NFL's highest-paid quarterback? Yes, you have to look all the way back to 2018 — you know, two years and some change — to when the San Francisco 49ers quarterback inked a then-record five-year deal with up to $137.5 million. What a bargain. That's not what some thought when the deal was signed. At the time, it seemed like a lot of money for a player who had started just seven games. Of course, he had won each of them. Since then, 10 quarterbacks have leaped past Garoppolo when it comes to an average annual salary. The most recent is the reigning Super Bowl MVP, Kansas City Chiefs
