Dec 17, 2018 at 11:31 AM--

The San Francisco 49ers won their fourth game of the season and second straight, beating the Seattle Seahawks 26-23 at Levi's Stadium on Sunday and improving to a record of 4-10.

Below is a mix of key player and team stats provided by the NFL, the 49ers, and Pro Football Focus.

Key Player Statistics

QB Nick Mullens went 20-of-29 for 275 yards with a touchdown and a passer rating of 110.6.

Mullens' 689 passing yards in two games this season against Seattle marks the most in a single season by any quarterback in Seahawks history.

Rank Name Year Comp Att Yds TD INT QB Rating
1. Nick Mullens, SF 2018 50 77 689 3 1 101.1
2. Ken Stabler, Oak. 1979 56 84 685 2 4 79.7
3. John Elway, Den. 1987 43 74 673 5 3 94
4. Dan Fouts, SD 1983 49 77 669 5 5 85.9
5. Kurt Warner, Arz. 2008 51 74 658 5 2 107.8

Mullens finished with a career-high Pro Football Focus passing grade of 80.5. He went 6-of-7 for 135 yards with a touchdown and a perfect passer rating of 158.3 on intermediate passes (10-19 yards).

Mullens' combined Pro Football Focus passing grade of 72.1 since becoming a starter during Week 9 ranks 13th among all NFL quarterbacks during that span.

WR Richie James' 97-yard kickoff return for a touchdown marked the first time a member of the 49ers registered a kickoff return for a touchdown since WR Ted Ginn Jr. registered a 102-yd. kickoff return for a score against the Seahawks on September 11, 2011.

James is the first 49ers rookie to return a kickoff for a touchdown since RB Amos Lawrence did so in 1981 (92 yards vs. LAR).

TE George Kittle earned an overall Pro Football Focus grade of 84.2 with a run-blocking grade of 80.2 on Sunday.

TE Garrett Celek hauled in a 41-yard touchdown reception, his second touchdown of the season and 12th of his career, to cap off a 98-yard scoring drive. He finished the game with two receptions for 61 yards and one touchdown.

DT DeForest Buckner registered a career-high 11 tackles and two sacks against the Seahawks. He extended his single-season career high to 11 sacks, becoming the first member of the 49ers to register double-digit sacks since LB Aldon Smith finished with 19.5 sacks in 2012.

Buckner has registered two sacks in each of the 49ers' two matchups against the Seahawks this season. He now has two-or-more sacks in three games this season, which is the most by a 49ers player in a single season since LB Aldon Smith accomplished the same feat in 2013.

Buckner earned the top defensive grade (82.8) from Pro Football Focus. He had a quarterback hit and five stops to go along with his two sacks.

DL Solomon Thomas played a season-high 65 snaps and earned an overall Pro Football Focus grade of 74.7. He had two quarterback pressures but also drew two offensive holding penalties.

LB Mark Nzeocha recorded his first career sack and forced fumble after bringing down Seahawks QB Russell Wilson for an 8-yard loss.

K Robbie Gould connected on all four field-goal attempts and two extra points, including the game-winning 36-yard field goal in overtime. This marked Gould's sixth-career game-winning field goal in overtime and his first since November 17, 2013, as a member of the Chicago Bears (vs. Bal).

With 14 points on the day, Gould has become the 23rd kicker in NFL history to register at least 1,500 points in their career (1,513).

Gould has now connected on 19 consecutive field-goal attempts, which tied for the third-longest streak in franchise history.

Rank Name Dates Made FGs
1. Robbie Gould 10/29/17 - 10/7/18 33
2. Phil Dawson 10/6/13 - 12/19/13 27

Phil Dawson 9/14/15 - 12/13/15 19

Key Team Statistics

The 49ers snapped a 10-game losing streak to the Seahawks, winning their first game against Seattle since 2013 when the two teams split the regular-season series. The 49ers went on to lose to the Seahawks in the NFC Championship Game that season.

The 49ers' 10-play, 98-yard drive that ended in a 41-yard touchdown pass from Mullens to Celek was the team's longest since 2002.

San Francisco 49ers cornerback Richard Sherman sat down to speak with reporters on Tuesday. In front of him was an auditorium filled with empty seats, and a single video screen in the middle of them. That screen featured the media, like myself (they'll let anyone in there these days), sitting comfortably in our homes, speaking to the veteran defender virtually via Zoom video conference software. Sherman conducted the entire interview with a face covering on — just one of several precautions in place at the 49ers facility to ensure the safety of players, staff, and their families. It's a reminder of how different the upcoming NFL season will be, a reminder of the new normal amidst a pandemic. It's an adjustment. Sherman knows

Monson has the Seattle Seahawks reclaiming the throne in his take on how the upcoming season will pan out. "When in doubt, err on the side of the best quarterback," wrote Monson, "and right now Russell Wilson is the best quarterback in the NFL not named Patrick Mahomes. The 49ers will need to battle against the inevitable Super Bowl hangover, and though
