Seahawks embarrass 49ers with 20-3 beating: Game recaps from Oct. 22

Oct 22, 2015 at 8:42 PM--


Boos from fans that were left filled Levi's Stadium as the San Francisco 49ers punted with just over 4 minutes left in the game and down by 17 points. Then again as the 49ers punted with just over 3 minutes left in the game. They were outplayed, outcoached, and embarrassed during a one-sided 20-3 loss to the Seattle Seahawks on Thursday night.

Both CB Kenneth Acker and CB Tramaine Brock had interceptions off of Seahawks QB Russell Wilson and Wilson was sacked five times by a 49ers defense that had four sacks in the previous five games. It wasn't enough as the 49ers take sole possession of last place in the NFC West as they fall to a record of 2-5.

If it wasn't evident already, the 49ers are clearly rebuilding. After looking as though he was improving over the past couple of games, 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick regressed once again. He has fallen to 1-6 against the Seahawks and was sacked six times in this contest. He ended the night with just 124 yards passing as he completed only 13 of 24 passes.


The 49ers had only 142 net yards, their fewest since a 9-3 victory over the Minnesota Vikings in 2006, compared to the Seahawks' 388. The 49ers punted the ball nine times, which was one more than first downs in the game. They had just 48 snaps on offense, which was their fewest in a game since 2009.

For the Seahawks, RB Marshawn Lynch rushed for 122 yards, making this the fourth straight meeting with the 49ers where he has rushed for 100-or-more yards.

Wilson completed 18 of his 24 passes for 235 yards, a touchdown, and two interceptions.

"We didn't play well. We don't have an excuse," said upset 49ers head coach Jim Tomsula following the loss. "They just played better than we played."

The 49ers will next face the Rams in St. Louis on Sunday, November 1.

49ers vs. Rams: Keys to beating the reigning Super Bowl champs

By Wayne Breezie

After a private meeting with patrons on Patreon last night, I decided to ask them what their keys to victory are for Monday night. The cool thing is we all shared the same sentiments, concepts, and concerns regarding the 49ers. If the 49ers want to defeat the Super Bowl champion Los Angeles Rams, they must perform these "Five Keys To Victory." RUN THE BALL Mike Eng from the "Woke Niner Recaps Podcast" said that for the 49ers to win, they must run the ball. The 49ers are sixth overall in rushing without their star running back, Elijah Mitchell. Kyle Shanahan seems to abandon the run when it matters most, but this week, he needs to stick to the run to wear down the Rams' defense. That defense is ranked 10th against the rush, so the advantage should favor the



49ers elevate DT Akeem Spence to active roster ahead of Broncos game

Per the NFL transaction wire, the San Francisco 49ers have elevated defensive tackle Akeem Spence from the practice squad to the active roster for Sunday's Week 3 matchup against the Denver Broncos. It is a "standard elevation," meaning he will return to the practice squad following the game. San Francisco signed Spence to a one-year deal in August. Defensive tackle Arik Armstead did not practice this week after suffering a foot injury in Week 2's win over the Seattle Seahawks. On Friday's status report, he and tackle Colton McKivitz (ankle) were listed as "questionable" for Week 3. There has been no change to the designations. Offensive lineman Daniel



49ers-Broncos: Jimmy Garoppolo still looking to get in game shape, get on same page with offensive teammates

By Kirk Larrabee

Last week, following a 27-7 win over the Seattle Seahawks, quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo said that being under center for the 49ers offense after missing the offseason and preseason was "like riding a bike." On Sunday, during a mistake-filled 11-10 loss to the Denver Broncos that saw the offense commit three turnovers and a safety while converting just one of ten third downs, that bike at times looked like it had two flat tires. In his first start since stepping back into the quarterback spot after a season-ending injury to Trey Lance, Garoppolo finished 18-of-29 with 211 yards, one touchdown, and one interception. He also stepped out of the end



49ers' George Kittle on board with 18-game seasons so long as this happens

By David Bonilla

In 2021, the NFL expanded each team's season from 16 to 17 games. It's almost certain that the expansion will eventually include an 18th game. While that means more NFL games for fans to enjoy each year and more revenue for the already highly-profitable league, it also means more wear and tear on the bodies of NFL players. Knowing it is inevitable, one San Francisco 49ers star doesn't have an issue with 18-game seasons. However, there needs to be one compromise. "I think if you throw in an extra bye, I think it would be very easy for guys," tight end George Kittle told Boomer Esiason on his Gametime podcast. "Just one extra week off, I think, would keep the players that you want to see week in and week out on the field every day. That's what matters. You
