1:25 The Seahawks win the toss and defer. The 49ers receive the opening kickoff.
1:30 On third and five from 49ers 30-yard line, linebacker Bobby Wagner beats Laken Tomlinson to sack Nick Mullens. The 49ers punt.
1:34 The Seahawks run three straight plays, gain nine-and-a-half yards and punt. Creative. The 49ers get the ball at their seven.
1:40 On third and four from the 49ers 30, three Seahawks defenders pound Mullens as the throws an incomplete pass. The 49ers punt. The offensive line has played terribly so far.
1:49 On second and six from the Seahawks 30, the 49ers play Cover 3, Ahkello Witherspoon abandons his deep-third of the zone and gives up a 45-yard catch to Jaron Brown. Four plays later on third and goal from the four, K’Waun Williams commits illegal contact and gives up a touchdown catch to Brown. The Seahawks decline the penalty. They lead 6-0 after Sebastian Janikowski misses the extra point.
1:55 On second and 10 from the 49ers 25, Mullens lines up in the shotgun and Weston Richburg snaps the ball over Mullens’ head. Mullens dives on the ball and recovers it at the 49ers 11. They punt two plays later. Richburg and Tomlinson have been awful.
2:03 On first and 20 from the Seahawks 48, Malcolm Smith gives up a 52-yard touchdown catch to Tyler Lockett. The Seahawks 13 nothing, and the 49ers offense still hasn’t moved the ball past its 30-yard line.
2:16 On first and goal from the 14, Bobby Wagner strips running back Jeff Wilson after a nine-yard gain up the middle. The Seahawks recover.
2:23 Wilson throws the ball away on third and four from the Seahawks 31, and the Seahawks punt on the next play. The 49ers geet the ball at their 28.
2:29 On the first play of the drive, Wilson catches a screen and gains 15 yards, but injures his left left at the end of the play, leaves the game and walks to the locker room. Three plays later on third and 11, Frank Clark pushes Richburg straight back into Mullens, then knocks down Mullens’ pass. The 49ers punt. Tyler Lockett makes a fair catch at the Seahawks 10.
2:35 On second and 10 from the Seahawks 10, left guard D.J. Fluker holds Fred Warner. The Seahawks punt two plays later, but punt returner Richie James fumbles and the Seahawks recover. I guess the Richie-James experiment is over. He’s bad. The 49ers need a new returner.
2:45 On the first play of the drive, Malcolm Smith commits an unnecessary roughness penalty when he hits Russell Wilson in the head while Wilson slides. Two plays later, K’Waun Williams grabs Doug Baldwin and commits pass interference at the one-yard line. Three plays later, Williams gives up a touchdown catch to Baldwin, and the Seahawks lead 20-0. They have thrown at Richard Sherman, because they haven’t had to.
2:53 Robbie Gould makes a 48-yard field goal as the first half ends. The 49ers trail 20-3 at halftime. The game feels over. The 49ers probably can’t score 20 points.
3:08 Tyler Lockett returns the kickoff 85 yards. The Seahawks are destroying the 49ers on offense, defense and special teams.
3:09 Next play, Rashaad Penny runs 20 yards into the end zone for the touchdown. No one touched him. The Seahawks lead 27-3. The 49ers quit right after halftime for the second week in a row. Bad look for the head coach.
3:17 James returns the kickoff 42 yards. Later in the drive, Mullens throws a 17-yard touchdown pass to Dante Pettis on third and seven. Pettis caught the ball at the first-down marker, juked cornerback Shaquil Griffin, ran around a block from Kyle Juszcyk and scored. The 49ers trail 27-10. Good response by the offense and special teams.
3:27 On third and nine from the Seahawks 39, Wilson scrambles and gets sacked by DeForest Buckner. The Seahawks punt.
3:35 On third and 8 from the Seahawks 34, Laken Tomlinson gives up an 11-yard sack, which knocks the 49ers out of field goal position. The 49ers punt.
3:48 On second and 6 from the Seahawks 16, Antone Exum Jr. commits a 43-yard pass interference against Tyler Lockett. Four plays later, Shanahan commits unsportsmanlike conduct for screaming, “F— you!” to an official’s face. Two plays later on second and 17 from the 49ers 18, Richard Sherman gives up a touchdown catch to Jaron Brown. Bad game for Sherman. The Seahawks lead 34-10.
3:54 On the first play of the drive, Mullens throws a 75-yard touchdown pass to Pettis, who ran a simple post route. The Seahawks free safety was out of position. Pettis is having a good game, and so is Mullens — his QB rating is 125.9.
3:55 The 49ers go for two, and Kyle Shanahn calls a quarterback run for Mullens, who gets crushed and fumbles. Terrible play call. The Seahawks lead 34-16.
4:09 On first and goal from the 1, Ronald Blair sacks Wilson for a 16-yard loss. Two plays later, Buckner sacks Wilson for a five-yard loss. Sebastian Janikowski makes a 40-yard field goal, and the 49ers trail 37-16.
4:20 On third and three from the Seahawks 5, Mullens throws an interception to Wagner, who runs the ball 98 yards for a touchdown. The Seahawks lead 43-16 after Janikowski misses an extra point.
4:40 The Seahawwks win. Stay tuned for my grades and postgame Periscope report.
