We hadn't seen the 49ers struggle on this level since their previous trip to CenturyLink Field, a 42-13 loss in Week 16 last December. On Sunday, the Seahawks held the 49ers to just 207 yards of total offense while managing to make Colin Kaepernick look mortal. San Francisco committed five turnovers, its most in a game under Jim Harbaugh.
The 49ers have built their offense around the running game in recent years, but they continued to struggle on the ground in Week 2. Kaepernick led the way with 87 yards on nine carries, but the quarterback had no help.
Frank Gore suffered through his second consecutive subpar game, finishing with just 16 yards on nine carries. This team needs Gore to pick up those tough yards between the tackles. The veteran's play will be something to keep an eye on moving forward.
