The Seattle Seahawks lost a painful 33-17 game to their rival, the San Francisco 49ers, in their Week 1 matchup. The season opener was unkind to the new-look Seahawks as they were unable to complete their comeback against an NFC West foe.
The Seahawks almost came back from a 16-0 halftime deficit as they cut the 49ers lead to two points with just under four minutes remaining in the game. Two special teams touchdowns from Ted Ginn, Jr. slammed the door of opportunity closed.
A brutal stretch awaits the Seahawks as they will attempt to crawl into their bye week with at least one or two wins. Next up for the Seahawks are the Pittsburgh Steelers, the Arizona Falcons, Atlanta Falcons and New York Giants.
Here are some takeaways from the disappointing season-opening loss.
