49ers-Seahawks Twitter reactions: An ugly outing for SF

Not only were the Niners blown out, they also lost Jimmy Garoppolo and George Kittle to injuries.

Well, that was embarrassing.

The San Francisco 49ers came out and laid an egg in the biggest game of the year, losing 37-27 to the Seattle Seahawks. The Niners looked ugly from the opening kickoff. Quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo threw an ill-advised interception on a critical third-and-5 that cost the 49ers a chance to put some points on the board.

Russell Wilson and the Seahawks’ offense put this one away after seldom-used receiver Dante Pettis — who head coach Kyle Shanahan has kept in the dog house — was surprisingly called upon to return a kickoff and fumbled, giving Seattle possession on the San Francisco 21-yard line.

The Seahawks scored six players later to go up 27-7, ending any hopes of a Niners comeback. To make matters worse, Garoppolo and tight end George Kittle both left the game with separate injuries and did not return.
