This is the live blog for the San Francisco 49ers’ Week 7 Thursday night game against the Seattle Seahawks. I’ll update this frequently with information and analysis from the press box.
4:04 Here are the 49ers’ inactives:
That means Carlos Hyde, Anquan Boldin, Bruce Ellington, Reggie Bush, Vernon Davis and Gerald Hodges are active. Ellington probably will return punts.
4:08 Here are the Seahawks’ inactives:
4:39 Hyde has a stress fracture in his left foot, according to Tracy Wolfson.
5:21 Seattle wins the toss and defers.
5:29 Reggie Bush drops a pass on third-and-7. He came to play. Niners go three-and-out.
5:29 Seahawks’ ball at their 39-yard line after the punt.
5:39 Marshawn Lynch dives over the pile and into the end zone on third-and-goal from the one-yard line. 7-0 Seahawks. Russell Wilson attempted only three passes. Lynch ran nine times.
5:43 Quinton Patton returns the kickoff to the Niners’ 32-yard line.
5:47 Kaepernick throws back-to-back passes out of bounds on second- and third-down, and the Niners go three-and-out. The second pass hit a 49ers trainer in the side of the head.
5:48 Seahawks’ ball at their 15 after the punt.
5:50 Anquan Boldin is playing only on third downs.
5:50 Richard Sherman is covering Torrey Smith where ever he goes.
5:56 Russell Wilson misses Jimmy Graham on third-and-8 from midfield. Eric Reid was playing inside linebacker and covering Graham man to man. Jaquiski Tartt was playing safety.
5:57 Reggie Bush watches the punt bounce. Niners ball at their 11-yard line.
6:01 Hyde rushes for 10 yards on first-and-5 from the Niners’ 28, and the first quarter ends. Hyde ran for 12 yards on the first play of the drives. His foot doesn’t appear to be an issue.
6:02 Marshawn Lynch is throwing up on the sideline.
6:05 On first down, Kaepernick fakes a hand off to Mike Davis, turns around and gets sacked. Obvious he wasn’t going to hand off to Davis. Hyde has to be on the field for that play call. Bad decision by Geep Chryst. Niners punt three plays later.
6:06 Seahawks’ ball at their 34 after the punt.
6:11 Russell Wilson scrambles for three yards on third-and-five, and Steven Hauschka makes a 49-yard field goal. 10-0 Seahawks.
6:22 Kaepernick is flagged for a delay of game on third-and-10, knocking the Niners’ out of field goal range. Next play, Kaepernick completes a one-yard pass to Bush on third-and-15. Gutsy play call. Seahawks’ ball at their 10-yard line after the punt.
6:25 Gerald Hodges in for Michael Wilhoite on first down.
6:30 Wilson play fakes and throws deep for Tyler Lockett, who smokes Tramaine Brock for a 43-yard touchdown catch. 17-0 Seattle. Five-play, 90-yard drive.
6:35 Kaepernick runs into sacks on first- and second-down. Third-and-18 after the two-minute warning.
6:35 Antoine Bethea has a shoulder injury and is questionable.
6:38 Kaepernick completes a 6-yard pass to Boldin on third-and-18. Kaepernick’s passer rating is 63.9. Is that good?
6:43 Brock picks off Wilson in the end zone with 43 seconds left in the first half. Pass was intended for Doug Baldwin, who was open. Pass was late. Brock made a great break.
6:45 Kaepernick tries to escape the pocket and takes a sack for a loss of 14. That’s the fourth time he’s gotten sacked. Seattle absolutely owns him.
6:46 Bush gains nine yards up the middle on a draw, and the first half ends.
6:47 Niners booed off the field.
7:05 Aaron Lynch sacks Wilson on second-and-20, the Seahawks punt and Bush returns it nine yards to the Niners’ 25.
7:10 Chryst calls three straight runs to the start the second half. Hyde fumbles on the third carry, Erik Pears recovers and the Niners go three-and-out. Did the Niners even practice this week, or did the players vote against it?
7:16 Wilson throws deep and Kenneth Acker intercepts him at the 49ers’ 7-yard line. The Niners would be in this game if the offense could do anything.
7:23 Kaepernick completes a 13-yard pass to Vernon Davis on third-and-10, then completes a 27-yard pass to Davis two plays later. He’s alive!
7:27 Kaepernick throws another ground ball on third-and-2 from the Seahawks 17, and Tomsula sends out the field-goal unit. Courageous. Dawson makes the field goal, and the score is 17-3 Seattle with 1:21 left in the first half.
7:35 The Seahawks are flagged for holding as the third quarter ends.
7:44 Hauschka makes a 46-yard field goal, and the score is 20-3 Seattle. Game over. Shameful performance. The Niners were not prepared to play.
7:50 Kaepernick gets sacked two more times, and Chryst calls a draw for Bush on third-and-26. More boos.
7:55 Brooks sacks Wilson on third-and-9, and the Seahawks go three-and-out.
8:00 Patton drops a pass on third-and-4, and the 49ers are punting. Seriously?
8:08 Tartt is injured.
8:11 The Niners punt again after Kaepernick almost throws a pick.
