By the Numbers: Seahawks vs 49ers

A look at 10 key numbers from the Seahawks' 12-9 win over the 49ers in Week 2.

Rookie wide receiver Amara Darboh collected the first reception of his career against the 49ers with a 16-yard catch. 

Seahawks linebacker Bobby Wagner recorded the ninth interception of his career yesterday (including the playoffs), with his pick of Brian Hoyer in the first quarter. Wagner has picked off San Francisco at home for two consecutive years. 

With his game-winning nine-yard touchdown catch, Paul Richardson recorded the third regular season receiving touchdown of his career. All three of those touchdowns have come in the fourth quarter of games, too.


The Seahawks extended their NFL-leading home-opener winning streak to nine games this week. 


A week after allowing Green Bay to convert on roughly half of their third-down opportunities in the season opener, the Seahawks defense held the 49ers to just 17 percent efficiency. 


Down 9-6 in the fourth quarter, Russell Wilson engineered another fourth quarter/overtime comeback with his go-ahead touchdown pass to Paul Richardson. It was Wilson's NFL-leading 22nd comeback since the 2012 season (including playoffs).


The Seahawks controlled time of possession against the 49ers and held the ball for a time of 36:58, which is significantly more than the 23:02 San Francisco had it for. This made a difference for them late as they ran the ball and chewed up clock in the fourth quarter. 


On offense, after going just 3-of-12 on third downs against the Packers, the Seahawks played better in Week 2 against the 49ers, converting on 42 percent of their chances.


Even after missing practice time last week with a hamstring injury, Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman still suited up and played every defensive snap on Sunday. Sherman has now started 92 consecutive games, which is the fourth-longest streak among active cornerbacks. 


By defeating the 49ers, Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll tied legendary NFL coach Don Coryell for 36th place on the league's all-time coaches wins list with 114.
