Quarter notes: Fourth
In a nutshell: Seahawks 42, 49ers 13. On the first play of the quarter, Richard Sherman intercepted a third-down pass from Colin Kaepernick in the end zone. Russell Wilson then directed a 12-play, 80-yard drive that ended with his 6-yard TD pass to Doug Baldwin and consumed almost eight minutes. Marshawn Lynch carried eight times for 22 yards to go over 100 for the game and Robert Turbin had two carries for 28 yards. The 49ers finally found the end zone with 1:40 left in the game on Colin Kaepernick’s 18-yard TD pass to Delanie Walker on fourth-and-17. The TD capped a 13-play, 90-yard drive that was way too little and way too late.
Players of the quarter: Sherman, who had the end-zone pick; Lynch, who got his third consecutive 100-yard rushing performance, and eighth of the season; and Baldwin, who caught his second TD pass.
Play of the quarter: Sherman’s end-zone interception, to go along with his end-zone breakup of a pass and 90-yard return of a blocked field goal for a TD in the second quarter.
Number of the quarter: 42. The points the Seahawks scored against a team that had been allowing an average of 15.6, and it follows the Seahawks scoring 58 against the Cardinals two weeks ago and 50 against the Bills last week.
