San Francisco 49ers vs. Seattle Seahawks

X

Running Backs

Frank Gore's 51-yard run was a game-changer. FB Bruce Miller was 2 for 3 on third-and-short runs.

B

Receivers

Anquan Boldin (93 yards) had a much-improved game against Seattle, thanks in part to the return of Michael Crabtree.

B

Offensive Line

Two penalties on Alex Boone, two sacks allowed, but solid run blocking against a good defense.

B

Defensive Line

Marshawn Lynch rarely found a big hole to run through. Ray McDonald had a sack.

B

Linebackers

Quiet game for Aldon Smith. Everyone else had impact, especially NaVorro Bowman (9 tackles, 1 sack).

B

Defensive Backs

A couple of lapses here and there, but mostly solid coverage, plus a late INT by Eric Wright.

B

Special Teams

Phil Dawson hit four FGs and Kassim Osgood blocked a punt, but Golden Tate's long return nearly killed Niners.

B

Coaching/Overall

Adjusting for strength of opponent, this was an impressive and resilient win.
