SEATTLE, Wa. — This is the live blog for the second quarter of the 49ers’ Week 15 game against the Seahawks. I will update this frequently with information and analysis from the press box.
2:02 The 49ers have been extremely successful running the read-option and the counter run to the left today. Greg Roman must keep calling those plays until the Seahawks adjust.
2:05 Frank Gore gains 5 yards up the middle on a first-down power run, and he gains 4 yards up the middle on a second-down draw. Third-and-1.
2:07 Gore runs up the middle and gets stopped for no gain. Fourth-and-1. They’re going for it.
2:10 Roman calls a power run to the left, Gore scores and it’s 7-3 Niners.
2:14 L.J. McCray tackles Paul Richardson at the Seahawks’ 11 on the kick return.
2:15 Jermaine Kearse beats Perrish Cox deep for a 47-yard catch on the first play of the drive.
2:21 Dan Skuta sacks Wilson on third-and-17 from the 49ers’ 37, and Seattle will punt.
2:21 Ellington makes a fair catch at the Niners’ 12, but Dontae Johnson is flagged for holding. First-and-10 from the 6. Niners’ special teams making too many stupid mistakes.
2:25 Brandon Lloyd beats Richard Sherman on a crossing route for 12 yards on third-and-8 from the 8.
2:28 Kaepernick checks down to Bruce Miller on second-and-8 from the Seahawks’ 44. Gain of 22. See, check downs can be explosive plays.
2:28 Frank Gore is down near the Niners’ sideline. Seems to have injured his shoulder throwing a block.
2:30 Next play, Kaepernick gets sacked for a two-yard loss. Next play, Kaepernick calls timeout to avoid a delay penalty.
2:31 Next play, Kaepernick loses a yard on a read-option play. Third-and-13.
2:32 Jordan Hill sacks Kaepernick for a 10-yard loss on third down, knocking the Niners out of field goal range. Three negative plays in a row after Gore leaves the game.
2:33 Garrett Celek has an ankle injury and his return is questionable.
2:35 Fair catch at the Seahawks’ 14 with 1:53 left in the half.
2:40 Gore is being evaluated for a head injury.
2:41 Robert Turbin beats Chris Borland to the outside for a 15-yard run.
2:42 Next play, Ray McDonald sacks Wilson for a 9-yard loss, followed by a false start. Second-and-24 from the Seahawks 36 with 29 seconds left.
2:43 Wilson buys time behind the line of scrimmage and hits Doug Baldwin deep down the left sideline for a 35-yard gain with 19 seconds left. Baldwin beat Antoine Bethea.
2:47 Wilson forces a pass over the middle and throws right to Eric Reid, who runs around until the clock expires. Halftime. The Seahawks were in field goal range.
2:48 Borland was down after the play. He’s slowly walking the locker room.
