Seahawks vs. 49ers: 5 Things We Learned in Sunday's 33-17 Contest

The numbers from the Seattle-San Francisco game on Sunday certainly supported the common claim that the NFC West ranks as the weakest in the NFL.

The Seahawks and 49ers combined for barely 400 yards in offense. Together they went 6-for-28 on third-down and fourth-down plays. There were 12 punts. The Niners demonstrated particular sluggishness near the goal line, failing to break the goal line on two of three attempts inside the 20. In the second half they had six snaps inside the 8-yard line and had to settle for a short field goal.

For someone used to the Patriots or Packers, watching Sunday’s game at Candlestick Park must have felt like someone had their finger on the remote’s slo-mo button. These teams couldn’t get moving.

The 49ers won, thanks in large part to Ted Ginn Jr’s two TD returns, but putting that aside, here are five things we learned about both teams on Sunday.
