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)

ESPN makes a case for 'surprisingly comfortable' 49ers to keep Jimmy Garoppolo

By David Bonilla
Jan 5, 2021

The San Francisco 49ers finished the season with a disappointing record of 6-10. It was so disappointing because the team's hopes were much loftier. The 49ers were coming off a Super Bowl appearance and focused on returning to the big game. Injuries changed those plans. San Francisco's roster was almost unrecognizable after only a handful of games. Added to that, the team spent the last month of the season in Arizona after being forced out of Santa Clara County due to COVID-19 restrictions banning contact sports. "The second week of the year, we didn't have the same team," head coach Kyle Shanahan said last week. "I think we had a pretty unprecedented

Seahawks ran unneeded play late in win over 49ers to get WR David Moore $100,000 bonus

There are times when a winning team running an unnecessary play with the game in hand would be something that falls under the category of poor sportsmanship, but it turns out the Seattle Seahawks had a good reason to do so against the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday. The Seahawks had the lead and the ball with 22 seconds to play in their 26-23 win over the 49ers, which is a situation where teams would usually kneel on the ball to run out the clock. But they decided instead to run a short five-yard pass play to wide receiver David Moore, which left some observers confused. After the game, it was revealed the Seahawks ran the play for Moore so he could get a performance bonus of $100,000. Moore's contract stipulates that he gets the bonus for 35 receptions on the
