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.

John Lynch 'fully confident' 49ers can rebound from 3-game losing streak

By David Bonilla

The San Francisco 49ers started 2-0 but have since lost three consecutive games. No one inside the organization is panicking, though. Instead, the focus remains on one game at a time. That means looking toward the Indianapolis Colts, not backward at the Green Bay Packers, Seattle Seahawks, and Arizona Cardinals. At 2-3, San Francisco sits in last place within the NFC West. However, general manager John Lynch is confident he and head coach Kyle Shanahan have built a roster that can rebound. The 49ers are in their bye week, and a lot of football remains in this 17-game season. "I'm fully confident [the pieces are in place to turn things around] because of the people in our room and the character of the people in our room, because of the people we have in leadership

49ers hope Brandon Aiyuk's 'great week' of practice carries over to Colts game, says Deebo Samuel

Brandon Aiyuk has certainly been in the spotlight over the 49ers bye week, as his lack of touches on the year has been questioned, given his impressive rookie season. Aiyuk currently has just 15 targets on the year, good for 5th on the team, and only eight of those plays have resulted in a catch. Last year, Aiyuk accumulated 60 receptions, 748 yards, and five touchdowns, leading the team in all three categories while playing in just 12 games. Quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo will return to the field Sunday against the Indianapolis Colts and has had the chance to practice with Aiyuk and the first-team offense after being cleared for the calf injury he sustained against the Seattle Seahawks. Amongst that first-team offense is breakout star receiver Deebo



"We've been our own worst enemy": Kyle Shanahan on how the 49ers can rebound from 3-game skid

By Marc Adams

The San Francisco 49ers self-scouted themselves during the bye week. What are the areas they saw that require improvement to snap their three-game losing streak? "There isn't one specific [area]," Shanahan told Greg Papa during a segment for NBC Sports Bay Area. "We need to get better all over because it hasn't just been, 'Hey, we're doing this bad. We're doing this good.' We've been up and down at everything, and if you even look at the numbers, we're kind of middle of the pack everywhere. And that's why the majority of this league is sitting at 2-3, 3-2, right there. And where are you going to go from there? "My biggest thing on what we need to do to get better is, I think you've heard our players say it a lot, but I keep talking to them about, 'Which team is
