Good mojo? Seattle loses in first game at Levi’s Stadium

Aug 2, 2014 at 11:12 PM--




The San Jose Earthquakes had the honor of hosting the first game at Santa Clara's brand new Levi's Stadium. 48,765 fans attended the MLS game that would help stadium staff work out the kinks of a live event before that start of the NFL preseason. Their opponent was the Seattle Sounders FC.

For obvious reasons, there is not much love between Bay Area sports fans and Seattle sports fans. The Seahawks happen to be the most hated team among San Francisco 49ers fans and the opposite is true in Seattle.

Perhaps it is a good sign that the first loss at Levi's Stadium was by a Seattle team. The Sounders lost to the Earthquakes 1-0.

Hopefully all Seattle teams will be winless at Levi's Stadium. Now wouldn't that be nice?

The 49ers will host the Denver Broncos in a preseason matchup on August 17. The Seattle Seahawks will visit on Thanksgiving, November 27.

The results were mixed for 49ers rookie quarterback Trey Lance after being unexpectedly called upon to play the entire second half during a 28-21 loss to the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday. Lance was inserted into the game to start the second half after it became apparent during halftime that starter Jimmy Garoppolo wouldn't be able to take the field due to an assumed calf injury he sustained early in the game. Lance finished the game with 157 yards and two touchdowns on 9-of-18 passing while rushing for 41 yards on seven carries, but was unable to dig the 49ers out of the hole they found themselves in after the Seahawks scored two quick touchdowns early in the second half. The appearance marked the first extended action of the regular season for Lance, who had

After a difficult loss to the Green Bay Packers on Sunday Night Football, the San Francisco 49ers are back for their second straight home game at Levi's Stadium versus another potential NFC contender in the Seattle Seahawks. The Niners lost the bout with the Packers in a heartbreaking fashion in a game that was decided in the final minute of play. The beginning of the game seemed like it was going to be a dominant, statement victory for Green Bay as they got off to a 17-0 lead by the time one minute was remaining in the first half. However, from there, the 49ers' offense led a comeback all the way to the end of the game when quarterback Jimmy Garapolo threw a touchdown pass to fullback Kyle Juscyk to make the score 28-27 with 37 seconds left. Unfortunately for San Fransisco,

San Francisco 49ers left tackle Trent Williams returned to the practice field this afternoon. He's been dealing with a shoulder injury sustained during Week 4's loss to the Seattle Seahawks. Williams' participation is undoubtedly good news no matter which quarterback — Jimmy Garoppolo or Trey Lance — starts this weekend against the Arizona Cardinals. After practice, head coach Kyle Shanahan joined KNBR and provided an update on his eight-time Pro Bowl offensive lineman. "Trent was good," Shanahan said on the Tolbert, Krueger & Brooks show. "He was able to go out there and practice today, so he'll be good to go on Sunday." While Shanahan was on the radio, Williams was speaking with reporters and explained how the injury



Three 49ers veterans reveal their advice to Trey Lance during rookie's first extensive NFL action

Jimmy Garoppolo tried to tough it out and play through his injury. However, by the end of halftime, it became apparent that the San Francisco 49ers quarterback might be a liability on the playing field. He couldn't put enough pressure on his right leg, which meant not being able to add power to his throws. "My calf is kind of where I get all my power from, so it definitely affected some [of my throws in the first half]," Garoppolo said. Rookie Trey Lance started the second half. However, some offensive stalls and special teams miscues put the 49ers in a hole after entering halftime tied with the Seattle Seahawks. San Francisco lost 28-21, fell to 2-2, and now
