In a game that looked like it was going to be a defensive struggle, Russell Wilson and his Seattle Seahawks found a way to make the San Fransisco 49ers look UN-capable. Wilson played well once he figured out the 49ers defense.
He completed 8 of 19 passes for 142 yards one touchdown and one interception. He rushed for 33 yards on 10 carries. This was a very physical football game that was delayed for an hour due to lightening in the area.
The Seahawks running game was mush improved from week one. They rushed the ball a total of 47 times for 172 yards and were able to control the tempo of the game with the run.
The Seahawks defense did a fantastic job controlling Colin Kaepernick. They sacked him 3 times and continued to pressure him throughout the game. The Seahawks defense hit Kaepernick 7 other times in the game.
The Seahawks intercepted Kaepernick 3 times in the game and they gave him a hard time all night long. Seattle’s running back Marshawn Lynch led the way in rushing carrying the ball 28 times for 98 yards.
With the win the Seahawks remain undefeated on the season at 2-0. This was a game that made a serious statement as to how good this Seahawks team is going to be in the 2013 season.
Wilson and company look like a team that could go all the way.
