The Seattle Seahawks rebounded from their loss to the Atlanta Falcons last week by beating the San Francisco 49ers 24-13 Sunday at Levi’s Stadium. Seattle overcame a sluggish first half to pull away in the second.
Here’s what Seattle coach Pete Carroll had to say in his opening remarks following the game:
“Good, solid win on the road. It’s good in the division and on the road that we got it done. We start with the pick [Seattle quarterback Russell Wilson threw an interception on the game’s first play] and Russell comes back and has a good football game. I think the game was kind of marred by the drops, we had uncharacteristic drops, I think we might have missed four or five balls today. other than that I think we would have had a real solid game with continuity and all that. There’s no real excuse other than that the wind was blowing a little bit early in the game, but we should have done much better there. Good, solid game for the defense. And the kicking game was real solid, we did what we needed to do, unfortunately we missed a field goal early, but the rest was solid. Getting rid of some of those penalty numbers is really helpful for us. A lot of guys played real solid.
“What I was really excited about is we were banged up going into this game. [Left tackle] Duane Brown couldn’t practice all week, [left guard Luke] Joeckel’s just coming back for the first time, [linebacker] Bobby Wagner couldn’t practice all week, and these guys just stuck it out and did a really good job to come through and play football like we needed them to and gave us the chance to win this football game. Those guys all seemed to come out OK, too, so we can take a step forward hopefully.”
