Wow! What a game, and what a relief. The Seahawks avoided sliding to 1-3 with a huge 28-21 win in Santa Clara on Sunday afternoon, making improvements on both sides of the ball. Let’s check out what the team had to say after the game, starting with a few quick injury updates from coach Carroll about Cedric Ogbuehi, Jamarco Jones, and Carlos Dunlap.
Pete Carroll said Jamarco Jones was set to start at RT before he felt ill again yesterday and this morning. He was in and out of last week's game with the same illness, which is making him sick to this stomach. Carroll said it's not COVID but they don't know what it is.— Brady Henderson (@BradyHenderson) October 4, 2021

The game against San Francisco produced a number of vintage Russell Wilson moments, including his spinning touchdown to Freddie Swain. Here’s Duane Brown’s reaction.

I really didn’t have much to say. It was one of the best plays I’ve seen from him ...” pic.twitter.com/wllzVmjSWi— Brady Henderson (@BradyHenderson) October 4, 2021
The game was special for Wilson for reasons beyond his play on the field, though. With the win, he continued his streak of never having lost three games in a row, and also became the fastest quarterback in NFL history to 100 regular season wins.

Jamal Adams made waves with his solid play today against George Kittle, as well as with his outfit at the presser.

Unrelated, I can't belive I almost wore the same outfit as him today. That would have been embarrassing. pic.twitter.com/J7duyLfKpB
Finally, let’s wrap up with a few perspectives on the Seahawks’ one big error of the day, the blown coverage that led to Trey Lance’s 76-yard TD pass to Deebo Samuel.

Carroll says the big mistake in secondary was Sidney Jones. But otherwise liked play of secondary.— Bob Condotta (@bcondotta) October 3, 2021
