Russell Wilson’s big second half carries Seahawks past 49ers

SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) Russell Wilson’s pass on the initial play of the game from scrimmage sailed into the hands of 49ers safety Eric Reid.

Seattle was scoreless until Wilson scampered two yards for a touchdown early in the second quarter. Then he really found his rhythm after halftime Sunday as the Seahawks beat the San Francisco 49ers 24-13 to bounce back from a three-point loss to Atlanta last Monday.

After halftime, Wilson was his old playmaking self again – with reliable pass-catching mate Jimmy Graham ready to shine alongside him. They have tag-teamed on eight touchdowns over the past seven games.

Wilson found Graham on a 1-yard toss for one of his two touchdown throws to give him 150 career TDs passing. He connected on a 17-yard score to Nick Vannett in the third quarter for the second-year tight end’s first career TD.

Graham’s 16 TD receptions passed Jerramy Stevens for most by a Seattle tight end.

”Jimmy Graham’s playing phenomenal football,” Wilson said. ”He’s one of the best tight ends to ever play the game. I think that he really stands out and he can do some special things.”

Wilson is now 23-4 following a loss, the top mark by a starting quarterback since the 1970 merger – with a minimum of 15 following a defeat.
