Statistical notes from the Seahawks’ win over San Francisco
A few notes on the Seahawks’ 19-3 win over San Francisco courtesy of ESPN Stats & Information:
• Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman got the better of 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick once again, picking him off two times. Sherman now has eight more interceptions than any other NFL player since he entered the league in 2011. Chicago’s Tim Jennings (15) and Arizona’s Patrick Peterson (14) are next.
• Sherman also climbed another interception list. He’s tied for fifth among active players with career four games in which he’s picked off more than one pass. Oakland’s Charles Woodson leads that group with seven such games.
• Safe to say the Seahawks have Kaepernick’s number. He’s now 1-3 in four career regular-season starts against Seattle compared to 23-8 all other opponents. His completion percentage (51.6 percent to 61.5 percent) is considerably worse against Seattle than against other teams, as are his yard per attempt (5.5 to 8), touchdowns to interceptions (2-7 to 44-12) and total QBR (22.6 to 68.3). And none of that takes into account last season’s NFC title game when he threw for 153 yards and committed three turnovers.
• Marshawn Lynch rushed for 104 yards, marking the fifth time in eight games (including playoffs) he’s reached triple digits against the 49ers since Jim Harbaugh became their head coach in 2011. The 49ers have only allowed five other 100-yard rushing performances under Harbaugh.
