1:03 The 49ers win the toss and defer until the second half. The Seahawks will receive the opening kickoff.
1:06 Bradley Pinion boots the opening kickoff out of bounds. Good start for the 49ers.
1:07 On the first play of the game, Wilson fakes a handoff, rolls left, stops, looks right and throws an interception to Eric Reid.
1:10 The Niners go three-and-out. The Seahawks defensive line dominated the Niners offensive line during that series.
1:18 On third-and-7 from the 49ers 30-yard line, Dontae Johnson lets an interception fly through his hands. Next play, Seahawks kicker Blair Walsh misses a 48-yard field goal wide left. Niners ball at their 38-yard line.
1:24 On third-and-5 from the 49ers 46-yard line, Beathard throws the ball away as he gets knocked to the ground. Tyler Lockett makes a fair catch at the Seahawks 16-yard line.
1:35 On third-and-15 from the 49ers 36-yard line, Ahkello Witherspoon breaks up a pass in the end zone intended for Tyler Lockett. Terrific play by the rookie corner. The Niners get the ball at their 20 after the punt.
1:41 On the Niners third series, Garrett Celek commits a block-in-the-back penalty, Joe Staley gives up a sack to Branden Jackson and Carlos Hyde drops a pass over the middle. Seems the Niners are back to playing their brand of sloppy football. Seahawks have the ball at their 40-yard line after the punt.
1:47 Eddie Lacy loses a yard on third-and-1, and the Seahawks go three-and-out. Niners ball at their 20.
1:50 On first-and-10, C.J. Beathard commits intentional grounding. On second-and-21, Beathard throws to Trent Taylor, but Bobby Wagner rips the ball out of his hands and makes the interception at the 49ers 16-yard line.
1:53 On first-and-goal from the 2, the Seahawks run the zone read, and both Solomon Thomas and Brock Coyle run toward the running back, doesn’t have the ball. Wilson has it, and he runs into the end zone for an easy touchdown. 7-0 Seahawks. The Niners can’t defend that play, as I discussed in my pregame Periscope report.
1:59 On third-and-3 from the 49ers 44-yard line, Beathard throws deep to Marquise Goodwin, who does not run deep. The pass is incomplete. Seahawks ball at their 14 after the punt.
2:06 On third-and-6 from the Seahawks 29, Jimmy Graham drops a short pass over the middle. The Niners have the ball at their 19 after the punt.
2:09 Beathard completes a 23-yard pass to Goodwin. Then, the offense goes backward. Beathard takes a hit as he rolls right and completes a pass to Hyde for a seven-yard loss. Then on third-and-15, Beathard checks down to Hyde, who drops the ball. That’s two drops for him. Seahawks ball at their 20 after the punt.
2:15 On third-and-4, Wilson gets hit by Elvis Dumervil and DeForest Buckner but escapes. He runs up the middle and gets tackled by Reuben Foster, who was spying Wilson. Good job by the 49ers defense.
2:16 The 49ers commit a holding penalty during the punt return. They start from their 31.
2:20 Beathard makes a perfect 34-yard throw to Goodwin while taking a huge hit from Bobby Wagner.
2:21 Three plays later, third-and-5, Beathard gets hit in the pocket and fumbles. The 49ers recover, but they’re out of field-goal range now. The Seahawks have the ball at their 16 after the punt.
2:28 On third-and-15, Wilson scrambles out of the pocket to his right and throws deep to Paul Richardson, who is open, but Wilson underthrows him. Niners ball at their 33 with 1:39 left in the half.
2:34 With eight seconds left in the half and the Niners at the Seahawks 20-yard line, Shanahan chooses not to take one shot into the end zone. Instead, he chooses to kick a 38-yard field goal, and Robbie Gould makes it. The Niners trail 7-3.
2:37 Halftime. The Niners will receive the ball to begin the second half.
3:00 On third-and-5 from the Seahawks 25, Beathard scrambles for one yard. Next play, Gould makes a 42-yard field goal, and the Niners trail 7-6. Carlos Hyde rush seven times for 38 yards on that drive, and all of his runs came either from the pistol or the shotgun. That’s the best way to use Hyde. Good play calling.
3:08 On second-and-4 from the 49ers 17, Wilson throws a touchdown pass to tight end Nick Vannett, who’s wide open. Seahawks lead 14-6. The key play on that drive came on third-and-9 from the Seahawks 30. The Niners rushed only three, and Wilson hit Doug Baldwin for a gain of 23. Strange play call. Better to rush five in that situation.
3:14 Beathard underthrows Hyde on third-and-7, and the Niners go three-and-out. This is a crucial moment in the game. Can the defense keep the team in the game?
3:25 On third-and-7 from the Seahawks 40, Wilson breaks two tackles in the backfield and completes an eight-yard pass to Jimmy Graham. On third-and-8 from the 49ers 20, Wilson throws a fade to Doug Baldwin, and the officials call pass interference on Dontae Johnson. The Seahawks will face second-and-goal from the one-yard line when the fourth quarter starts.
3:28 Graham beats Ahkello Witherspoon with a slant route for a one-yard touchdown. Witherspoon was playing bump-and-run coverage and he still never touched Graham. Amazing. Seahawks lead 21-6.
3:37 On third-and-6 from the 49ers 46, Michael Bennett beats right tackle Erik Magnuson around the edge and forces Beathard to dump the ball to Garrett Celek, who gains two yards. The Seahawks have the ball at their 10-yard line after the punt.
3:46 On third-and-4 from the Seahawks 49, Wilson completes a pass in the flat to J.D. McKissic, and Dontae Johnson tackles him after a gain of one. The Niners have the ball at their 10-yard line with 6:57 left in the fourth quarter after the punt.
3:51 On third-and-6, Michael Bennett beats Erik Magnuson and sacks Beathard for a seven-yard loss.
3:58 Blair Walsh makes a 34-yard field goal, and the Seahawks lead 24-6 with 3:27 left.
4:13 Beathard leaves the game after taking his 16th hit. Jimmy Garoppolo comes in and completes two passes for 19 yards and a touchdown as time expires. The 49ers lose 24-13. Stay tuned for my postgame Periscope, game story and grades.
