Takeaways: LB Bobby Wagner steals the show in Seahawks’ win over 49ers

Seahawks celebrate TD by perfectly reenacting Richard Sherman's classic tip play Seahawks celebrate TD by perfectly reenacting Richard Sherman's classic tip play

This time, Carson runs of 15 yards and 1 yard set up a lovely Wilson pass to Tyler Lockett for a 52-yard touchdown that put the Seahawks up 13-0 early in the second quarter. And Schottenheimer did not use the passing game much. But that's exactly what Russell Wilson did, as Seattle's star quarterback opened the game completing his first three passes for 101 yards and two touchdowns to Jaron Brown and Tyler Lockett.

Sherman would go on to have one of the most epic postgame interview rants of all time. Running back Jeff Wilson Jr. also showed up Sunday, with 134 yards from scrimmage on 23 touches, offering hope he could be a future running mate for Breida. "I tried to look at Sherm, but I didn't see him".

He believes the team should have won more than one championship, was broken up too soon, and that he shouldn't have been released last March following a season-ending Achilles injury in 2017. "It was a good time for the team". Despite playing in an offense that runs the football far more than it passes, Lockett ranks fifth in touchdown receptions (9) and has already set a career-high in receiving yards (713). He isn't the best receiver on the planet. It was two good routes on both of those. The balance of the Seahawks came to the forefront as they rode the arm of Russell Wilson and the efforts of the wide receivers to get themselves open en route to the ever-so-critical win. Seattle's average play was 6.8 yards.

What else - if anything - did Seattle's receivers have in the works after three first-half touchdown celebrations, including one that paid tribute to Sherman's famous tip? Overall, Seattle held San Francisco to 66 rushing yards and 2.9 yards per carry, while the front four combined to hit Nick Mullens 12 times over the course of the game.

The 49ers and Seahawks did something unique Sunday. Instead of giving a 49ers quarterback the choke sign, or celebrating an interception by dancing with the Sea-Gals cheerleaders, the 49ers' ex-antagonist took the beating and tried to make sense of what wrong. It was a take-care-of-business game, and the Seahawks took care of business with Wagner's All-Pro day and another one of Wilson's more efficient performances. They drove 58 yards in seven plays on the next possession, capping it off with a 17-yard Dante Pettis touchdown reception that make it 27-10. Plus, Seattle started the game with three straight runs.

Defensive coordinator Ken Norton Jr.'s plan Sunday was to pressure 49ers quarterback Nick Mullens, who was a rookie on their practice squad last season, with more blitzing by Wagner and linebacker partner Austin Calitro than normal.

After being named NFC Special Teams Player of the Week following a ideal game in Carolina, Sebastian Janikowski botched not one but two extra point opportunities.
