Jarran Reed had a strip-sack on Jimmy Garoppolo after slipping past Ben Garland on a stunt/ Jadeveon Clowney scooped up the loose ball and returned for a touchdown. Clowney also added a third-quarter strip-sack of Garoppolo when he pushed Mike McGlinchey back and then swiped the ball out of Garoppolo's hands.
Poona Ford and Jarran Reed combined for a clean-up sack of Garoppolo after Clowney quickly beat Joe Staley outside to flush him from the pocket. Quinton Jefferson also had a clean-up sack after Clowney’s initial pressure flushed Garopplo.
Despite throwing what could have been a game-losing interception in overtime, the football Gods gifted Russell Wilson another chance to redeem himself and he cashed in, setting up his team for a game-winning field goal as the clock expired in overtime.
New Seahawks wide receiver Josh Gordon didn't get a ton of looks, but his two receptions were big ones that ultimately played a big role in Seattle's win.
Garoppolo's interception wasn't his fault, as the pass hit Kendrick Bourne in the hands and deflected right into the grasp of Quandre Diggs. However, Garoppolo had two passes that should have been intercepted on the 49ers' game-tying fourth-quarter drive, but K.J. Wright and Bobby Wagner couldn't hold onto the ball. Garoppolo also lost two fumbles.
Bourne beat Jamar Taylor on a crossing route for a first-quarter touchdown. Deebo Samuel consistently moved the sticks for the 49ers’ passing attack and generated most of their big plays through the air.
Defensive Rookie of the Year candidate Nick Bosa had another excellent game and shone in both the run and pass game, winning a large percentage of his individual matchups.
DeForest Buckner made a big impact tonight as well, as the entire 49ers defensive line, for the most part, had their way with Seattle's offensive linemen.
