In defeating the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday afternoon the Seattle Seahawks moved to 7-4 on the season and kept pace with the Los Angeles Rams in the NFC West. Perhaps more importantly, though, for the first time since December 13, 2015, Russell Wilson was sacked zero times in the game.
This is not to say all the problems with the offensive line are fixed, or that this result can be expected each week going forward, as it is important to keep in mind that it was the defensive front of the 1-9 49ers. In addition, as mentioned elsewhere, San Fran’s front seven was missing a couple of the bigger names that caused problems in the first meeting between these two teams, as Arik Armstead is on injured reserve and NaVorro Bowman was released and is now a member of the Oakland Raiders. However, the simple facts are that the line did not surrender any sacks and the run game flashed at moments. Brief moments, but moments.
There were still issues that the team will likely address and work on once they are back at work preparing for the Sunday night matchup against the Philadelphia Eagles. Ethan Pocic continued to be pushed into the backfield, leading to several running plays being blown up, and there were some communication issues on the left side of the line with Duane Brown and Luke Joeckel lining up next to each other for the first time ever.
