Seahawks beat 49ers 29-13: Game recaps from Nov. 22

Nov 22, 2015 at 4:50 PM--


Five plays after DT Glenn Dorsey went down with a right knee injury during the San Francisco's first defensive play of the game, Seattle QB Russell Wilson passed to WR Tyler Lockett for a 24-yard touchdown to give the Seahawks an early 7-0 lead over the 49ers.

Head coach Jim Tomsula said Dorsey is being checked for an ACL injury and will have an MRI on Monday.

The Seahawks would get into the end zone during the team's following two drives. It would not be until the closing seconds of the first half that the 49ers would finally see the end zone. QB Blaine Gabbert would throw a 19-yard touchdown pass to TE Vance McDonald to cut the Seahawks' lead to 13 on a 9-play, 92-yard drive. The Seahawks would head into halftime with a 20-7 lead.

The two teams exchanged field goals after that. The 49ers' first drive of the second half would end with a successful Phil Dawson field goal attempt, lessening the Seahawks' lead, but Seattle would follow that up with a successful Steven Hauschka field goal on the next drive. The 49ers would then kick a field goal near the end of the third quarter, but the Seahawks would still lead 23-13 and that would be the last time the 49ers scored in the game.

The field goal exchange would end early in the fourth quarter when Wilson passed to Seahawks RB Thomas Rawls for a 31-yard touchdown, increasing the Seattle lead to 29-13. Rawls started for RB Marshawn Lynch, who was inactive for the game, and would rush for 209 yards on 30 carries and a touchdown. It would be the most rushing yards ever by a Seahawks running back. Rawls would also have 46 yards receiving on three receptions.


"Definitely disappointed in the performance. You have to be solid in run fits, and tackling," said Tomsula following the loss.

QB Colin Kaepernick was placed on injured reserve on Saturday – ending his 2015 season. Gabbert made his second consecutive start for the 49ers, completing 22 of 34 passes for 264 yards and a touchdown for a 98.2 passer rating. His Seattle counterpart would complete 24 of 29 passes for 260 yards and three touchdowns for a 138.5 passer rating for the Seahawks.

When discussing Gabbert's performance against Seattle, Tomsula said, "I'm not into moral victories, but that was encouraging."

Blaine Gabbert: 'We Didn't Do Enough to Win' 

RB Shaun Draughn carried the ball 12 times for the 49ers, gaining only 37 yards on the ground and 40 through the air on eight receptions. Gabbert would add 22 yards rushing.

WR Anquan Boldin would lead the team in receiving yards with 93 on five receptions. McDonald would be responsible for the team's lone touchdown.

The 49ers have not lost three of their last four and their fifth straight to Seattle. San Francisco will begin preparing to return home for a November 29 matchup with the Arizona Cardinals at Levi's Stadium. You can enter for a chance to win free tickets to that game here.

Game manager or game changer? RG3 weighs in on 49ers QB Brock Purdy

By David Bonilla
Feb 17

The debate between game manager versus game-changer continues, even after Brock Purdy helped guide the San Francisco 49ers to the Super Bowl. While the quarterback has done everything asked of him, aided by his talented supporting cast, there remain skeptics who persist in downplaying his achievements. Former NFL quarterback Robert Griffin III, who once played in head coach Kyle Shanahan's offense, is not among Purdy's doubters. Speaking to Jason McCourty on Griffin's podcast, "RG3 and The Ones," Griffin shared his thoughts on the 49ers' quarterback. Griffin reflects on Purdy's season and his Super Bowl appearance, insisting it's challenging to come away from his performances believing the 24-year-old quarterback is merely a game manager. "There

49ers QB Brock Purdy outlines his plans for improving his game over the offseason

Brock Purdy is going to be a busy man in the months ahead, both on and off the field. And if everything goes right, he'll come out of it in a much better place than he was a year ago. Purdy was facing some uncertainty at this time last year after suffering a torn UCL in his elbow while trying to lead the San Francisco 49ers against the Philadelphia Eagles as a rookie quarterback in the NFC Championship game. An offseason of surgery and rehabilitation awaited Purdy in February 2023, but after a successful second season that saw him finish as a finalist for the NFL's Most Valuable Player award while guiding the 49ers to Super Bowl LVIII, Purdy will now have the opportunity to focus his offseason efforts on improving as a player instead of trying to heal his

49ers OL Jon Feliciano says Eagles DT Jalen Carter threatened him and his children with death during game

The bad blood between the Philadelphia Eagles and San Francisco 49ers seems to be getting worse. It certainly isn't getting any less bizarre. The latest chapter of back-and-forth between these two teams occurred Tuesday evening in an exchange between 49ers offensive lineman Jon Feliciano and Eagles defensive tackle Jalen Carter. Feliciano made headlines earlier in the week by publicly pointing out a mistake made by guard Spencer Burford during a pivotal overtime play against the Chiefs in Super Bowl LVIII, to which Carter responded by writing "Same dude who spoke on my dead teammate and the reason I was emotional during our game." Carter was referring to former University of Georgia player Devin Willock, who died along with team recruiting analyst Chandler LeCroy

Commanders hire 49ers assistant Anthony Lynn as run-game coordinator

By David Bonilla

The San Francisco 49ers are losing their assistant head coach and running backs coach, Anthony Lynn. According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the Washington Commanders are hiring Lynn to be their run-game coordinator. "Commanders made a run at Lynn last year, but get him this year," wrote Schefter. "Here's one reason why: Lynn is close with HC Dan Quinn and GM Adam Peters." Lynn reunites with Peters, who served as the 49ers' assistant general manager since 2021 before becoming the Commanders' general manager in January. Washington hired Quinn as their new head coach earlier this month. A big move for
