Home Opener: Seahawks vs. 49ers on KPUG

Hyde became the first runner to rush for 100 yards or more in back-to-back games at Seattle since 2014.

Carson, who played only the second game of his National Football League career in the Seahawks 12-9 win over the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday, led all running backs with 20 carries for 93 yards on the night.

It was as ugly as it sounds.

Heck, by the time Wilson hit Paul Richardson in the end zone with 7:06 left in the fourth quarter for Seattle's first touchdown of the season, Jermaine Kearse - the wide receiver Seattle sent to the Jets in the Sheldon Richardson trade - already had two of them himself on Sunday. Blair Walsh missed the extra point.

"He's reminded me of that during the week", Carroll said. Breida had back-to-back runs of 11 and 13 yards to set up Robbie Gould's third field goal of the game.

No one's had a better view of Thomas than Seahawks coach Pete Carroll, who drafted Thomas in the 2010 first round.

"Ugly as hell. Very ugly".

"Doug Baldwin has always been in my head about being tougher and staying in there", Carson said.

Carroll made it clear that the Seahawks didn't want to "overwork" Thomas in his regular season debut, and to expect his productivity to increase over the next few games. This was their eighth straight victory over San Francisco. The 49ers accomplished something never done before in the long history of the franchise, starting a season with zero touchdowns through two games. How fast does he close space, that's the most important part.

They couldn't even manage that much against the 49ers. The key for Griffin will be to not get burned by the deep ball as I would suspect that San Francisco will take shots deep early in the game to test the third-round pick out of UCF. Running back J.D. McKissic is inactive. And Eddie Lacy may not have a role to play.

-Seahawks running backs vs. 49ers front seven. After the Seattle defense forced San Francisco to punt, it was up to the offense to run out the clock. But on Sunday in Seattle, the inability to break through cost the 49ers a golden opportunity for a major upset as they dropped a 12-9 decision to the Seahawks at CenturyLink Field. Wilson also looked antsy at times even in clean pockets, perhaps still feeling the effects of all the pressure he faced in Green Bay. Graham was targeted only two times.

Seattle travels Tennessee next Sunday to face the Titans in a 1:05 p.m. game that will be broadcast on the home of the Seahawks, Q13 FOX. By the 2-minute warning, San Francisco was out of timeouts and the Seahawks were able to kneel down. Carlos Hyde rushed for 124 yards, including a 61-yard run in the first half, but Brian Hoyer was 15 of 27 for 99 yards passing and an interception. Foster was a unanimous All-American selection previous year at the University of Alabama and the 2016 Butkus Award victor as the best collegiate linebacker, and the 49ers were thrilled to get him in the 2017 NFL Draft.

HOME COOKIN': Seattle has won the past six meetings against the 49ers in Seattle.

Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman said he was proud of the way his defense played while allowing just 248 yards of total offense.
