49ers vs. Seahawks: At a Glance

  • Brock Purdy made history in his playoff debut with 3 touchdown passes and a rushing touchdown, although he started extremely nervously with a few wild throws.

  • The Seahawks struggled to put pressure on the quarterback, giving him all the time in the world to pass. As the game progressed, Purdy made better and better use of it.

  • After a fairly clean first half, the Niners decided the game defensively with a fumble recovery and an interception, after which they each scored touchdowns.

49ers vs. Seahawks: The Analysis

The first half can easily be split into two halves. In the first, the Niners produced one play after another as the visitors failed to get to the line of scrimmage. The Niners made it only ten points because quarterback Brock Purdy got off to a shaky start in his first playoff start – the big yards came mostly from running play around wide receiver Deebo Samuel and running back Christian McCaffrey, who hit his own touchdown with a 68-yard run on the second self-set drive.

Then the Seahawks woke up, who got more creative and quicker (no huddle) on 3rd down. They scored a key first down in the red zone with a direct hit on running back Kenneth Walker, then he completed it himself with a 7-yard outside run for the Seahawks’ first points.

A short time later, the Seahawks again held San Francisco with a basket, after which the game threatened to tip over. Geno Smith threw a 50-yard touchdown pass to DK Metcalf, which became unstoppable on an easy route from cornerback Charvarious Ward.

The Niners responded with a drive to the 28-yard line, from where they managed just one field goal at the break. The break didn’t last at 4:14, however, as after a firecracker kick and a scramble and slide from Smith, cornerback Jimmie Ward tackled him with the helmet, resulting in a 15-yard penalty that gave Seattle a second. brought him back into the field’s shooting zone. And Jason Myers thanked him with a 56-yard kick for Seattle’s 17:16 halftime lead.
