Looks like I forgot to run one of the customary post-defeat "Silver linings" files. Thanks for the heads up on my Facebook page, Pete.
The upside: Even the worst defeats tend to feature a bright spot or two.
Officials assessed only three penalties against the Seahawks, the third time in four games Seattle had five or fewer in a game. The team had 32 over its first three games.
Marshawn Lynch reached 100 yards rushing for the second time in his past two games against the 49ers.
Seattle allowed 27 percent conversions on third down.
The Seahawks allowed one touchdown in four red zone possessions, picking off 49ers quarterback Alex Smith on one of those possessions.
Seattle allowed zero receptions to 49ers tight end Vernon Davis, who had caught at least one pass in 58 consecutive games.
The Seahawks allowed only one offensive touchdown for the fifth time in seven games.
Seattle limited an opponent to three or fewer points in the first quarter for the sixth time in seven games. The team has allowed 16 points in seven first quarters.
Seattle is finished with its divisional road schedule.
Looking ahead: The Seahawks visit Detroit in Week 8.
