The Seahawks lost to the 49ers on Thursday night, falling 21-13 in what was their fourth loss in five games. At 7-7, the Seahawks are very much still in the playoff hunt, but know they have “a lot of work to do” in the finishing stretch of the season.
In addition to that final score, here are 10 numbers that help tell the story of Thursday's loss:
Turnovers committed by the Seahawks this season, tied for the fourth most in the NFL, a total that includes a Travis Homer fumble late in the first half that set up a 49ers touchdown. The Seahawks have yet to play a turnover-free game this year, and for comparison, they had nine such games last year, and six in 2020.
Takeaways by the Seahawks for the second straight week. Prior to that, the Seahawks had forced multiple turnovers in 10 of their first 12 games.
Yards gained on three completions to wide open tight ends, including two George Kittle touchdowns, representing more than half of Brock Purdy's 217 passing yards.
Punts forced by Seattle's defense, including two three-and-outs and three drives with only one first down, illustrating that aside from those big plays—which were crucial plays and can't be glossed over—there was a lot of improvement made by Seattle's defense.
Catches for a team-leading 68 yards for Tyler Lockett. The total puts Lockett at 964 yards for the season, just short of his fourth straight 1,000-yard season, but unfortunately he broke a bone in his hand late in the game, putting in question his availability the rest of the season.
Consecutive field goals made by Jason Myers, who made two more on Thursday.
The length of Myers' second field goal, making him 6 for 6 from 50-plus this season, moving him into a tie with Steven Hauschka for the most field goals of 50 or more yards in a season in team history.
Geno Smith's second-half passer rating, an impressive showing against the league's top defense. After a tough first half for the entire offense, Smith completed 16 of 21 passes for 152 yards and a touchdown, all while facing a dangerous pass rush that registered 3.0 sacks and nine quarterback hits in the game.
Yards gained by Godwin Igwebuike in his second game as Seattle's kick returner, including two 31-yard returns. Igwebuike now has 187 yards on six returns in two games.
Tackles for Cody Barton to lead the team, his third game in the last four weeks with double-digit tackles.
