49ers rookie Elijah Mitchell scored his fifth touchdown of the season, running it in from 2 yards. It put San Francisco up 14-7 with 1:32 remaining in the first quarter.

It has been a weird game thus far, with three fumbles by Seattle, but only one lost, and an interception thrown by Jimmy Garoppolo. The Seahawks’ only significant yards and only points came on a fake punt when Travis Homer took the direct snap 73 yards for a touchdown.

Not counting the special teams play, which goes into the offensive stats, the Seahawks had only 7 yards in the first quarter. They have only one first down.

The 49ers’ scoring drives covered only 24 and 54 yards. The team’s first touchdown followed a Gerald Everett fumble, and the second came after Jason Myers missed a 56-yard field goal.

George Kittle scored the 49ers’ first touchdown on a 24-yard pass from Jimmy Garoppolo.

49ers defensive back Emmanuel Moseley is questionable to return with an ankle injury.

  1. Seriously time for Carroll to go. I don’t know how anyone else gets the blame for three straight O-Coordinators being predictable and ineffective.

    Of course it doesn’t help when your drafts have been so incompetent. He and Schneider have become enchanted with being called draft geniuses because they found diamonds in the rough. But that was long ago and since they seem to pass on more certain picks for wildcards, because they wouldn’t get them as much credit if they work.

    Of course they haven’t worked.
