Russell Wilson leads the Seahawks to victory over the 49ers, despite the fact that quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo is injured.
Russell Wilson led the Seattle Seahawks to a win over the San Francisco 49ers at Santa Clara, Calif., by throwing two touchdown passes and rushing for another.
In a 28-21 loss at Levi’s Stadium on Sunday, the 49ers outgained the Seahawks 457 to 234 in total yardage, earned nine more first downs, and led in time of possession.
Due to a calf injury, they also lost starting quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo at halftime. On Monday, Garoppolo will get an MRI to establish the degree of the damage and his comeback date.
With the NFC West victory, Wilson earned his 100th regular-season victory. The Seahawks have dropped their last two games. In his NFL career, Wilson has never lost three games in a row.
Wilson told reporters, “I don’t worry about losing.” “I’m not thinking about losing three games in a row, one game in a row, two games in a row; I just don’t think about it. It’s not something I’m used to doing. It isn’t a part of my mental process.
“I don’t give it a second thought. All I can think about is winning. The most important thing, in my opinion, is to keep winning, to keep the winning process going week after week, day after day. That, I believe, is why I’ve been so effective in the face of adversity.”
Before leaving, Garoppolo completed 13 of 23 throws for 165 yards, one touchdown, and an interception. In place of Garoppolo, rookie quarterback Trey Lance completed 9 of 18 throws for 157 yards and two touchdowns. On seven carries, he gained 41 yards.
On the 49ers’ first possession of the game, Garoppolo delivered a 21-yard touchdown throw to tight end Ross Dwelley. For the majority of the first half, the 49ers led 7-0. With 1:54 left in the half, Wilson delivered a 12-yard touchdown throw to wide receiver D.K. Metcalf. The score remained tied at halftime.
Garoppolo, who said he “tweaked” his right calf on the 49ers’ first series, spent the entire second half on the bench.
Garoppolo told reporters, “I believed I could keep trying to continue.” “It just kept getting worse and worse, and it started to go down to the Achilles a little bit. With the MRI and everything, we’ll have more information [Monday]. Right now, I’m hoping for the best.”
