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.
