49ers-Seahawks live updates: 49ers hold 20-7 lead with Lance out, Jimmy G. in

In the San Francisco 49ers’ home opener, Trey Lance was supposed to show he was a worthy starting quarterback for a team aspiring to the Super Bowl, but after a whirlwind of scrutiny amid the possibility of rain, the second-year QB was knocked out. for the rest of the day on the team’s second possession, injuring his ankle during a running play.

Just when it looked like the 49ers were going to extend their lead on another Robbie Gould field goal attempt, the Seahawks got their advantage for a block that Michael Jackson returned 84 yards for a touchdown to cut San Francisco’s lead. at 20-7. .

Half-time analysis

Michael Silver: The hedge was worth it. When the 49ers shocked the football world by bringing back Jimmy Garoppolo as Trey Lance’s replacement, they were prepared to deal with the increased drama in exchange for a tried and familiar alternative if the 22-year-old quarterback struggled or hurt himself.

With 2:20 to go in the first quarter of his second game as the team’s No. 1 QB, Lance went down with the injury. He ran inside, took a hard hit from Seahawks linebacker Cody Barton, tried to get up and then came back down. He left with a cast on his right leg and a suspected fibula injury that could end his season.

Even though the news is better than expected, Jimmy G. is back for the foreseeable future. He’s 35-16 as a Niners starter and his presence is polarizing. Get used to it. Right now he and the Niners are leading 20-0 and should be 1-1 tonight.

Scott Ostler: Hopefully that doesn’t happen in the second half, but if Jimmy Garoppolo is cut off the wind and has to sit out a series, the 49ers will go from a quarterback (Trey Lance) playing fullback to a fullback ( Emergency quarterback Kyle Juszczyk) playing quarterback. Much of the post-game chatter, by pundits and others, will be head coach Kyle Shanahan, and in this case, it’s hard to guess the runners-up.

49ers take a 20-0 halftime lead

Shortly after the Seahawks missed a punt reception deep in their own territory – recovered by Ross Dwelley – Kyle Juszczyk hit the 49ers’ second touchdown of the first half to bring the score to 20-0 before half-time.

Jimmy Garoppolo came in as Lance was carried into the locker room and ruled out for the rest of the game. Garoppolo had to settle for a field goal on that possession to extend the 49ers lead to 6-0.

Predictions

Eric Branch: The 49ers are the favorites by 9.5 points, their biggest gap in the series’ 41-game history. This line partly reflects the Seahawks no longer employing Russell Wilson. But that also takes into account that Seattle just beat Wilson. Monday evening. And traveled to Santa Clara a short week after an emotionally charged win that cost them All-Pro safety Jamal Adams. If the 49ers open the season with two consecutive losses against Justin Fields and Geno Smith? Cue the hysteria and call Jimmy Garoppolo. Seahawks 20, 49ers 10.

Anne Killion: Pete Carroll and the Seahawks have been extremely comfortable at Levi’s ever since they ate Thanksgiving turkey on the 50-yard line the year the stadium opened. Their only loss came in overtime in 2018 when a 49ers team led by Nick Mullens relied on four field goals from Robbie Gould for the win. But those wins all came with Russell Wilson behind center: I think Seattle suffered their second loss at Levi’s, but not by much: 49ers 17, Seahawks 10.

Scott Ostler: forty-niners win 24-20. It turns out the 49ers don’t have a one-man roster, after all, there are several other players, many of whom are pretty good. Trey Lance will be fine, despite the brisk wind and some rain. The defense shines, Warner and Bosa are for real. Two long passes completed by Lance (over 30 yards).

Michael Silver: This is a very important game for Trey Lance and for the Niners – so let’s assume he and they will stand for now. The Seahawks already won their Super Bowl last Monday night, beating Russell Wilson and the Broncos, and are playing a short week with nothing to lose. They usually make it hard for the Niners, but I don’t expect them to have enough juice today. 49ers 20, Seahawks 17.

Chances of rain fall as kick-off nears

The chances of record rain appear to be diminishing, as Eric Branch reports that there is a 30% chance of rain at kickoff, with a slight chance that rain will continue throughout the game with winds around 15-18 mph. The game will also mark the NFL debuts of the 49ers’ two third-round picks in 2022, RB Ty Davis-Price and WR Danny Gray.
