Sherman: ‘What are the combined scores from the last two games? How much of it is real and how much of it is fabricated? That’s real’

Per usual, Richard Sherman had a lot to say postgame Sunday. He had a big game with a pick, a dance and sticky coverage on Anquan Boldin. Sherman showed up to the interview room with his two game balls from the night and displayed them on the podium.

The Seattle Seahawks physically manhandled the San Francisco 49ers in a 29-3 victory Sunday evening in front of a record crowd of 68,338 at CenturyLink Field.

Seattle’s defense led the way, holding the 49ers explosive offense to 207 total yards. A week after Colin Kaepernick threw for 412 yards and three touchdowns in a win over Green Bay, the Seahawks held the San Francisco quarterback to a career-low 107 yards passing as a starter.

Kaepernick only threw three interceptions in 218 regular-season attempts last season. The Seahawks picked him off three times on Sunday, with Kam Chancellor, Earl Thomas and Richard Sherman all finishing with interceptions.

Check out the stats and the highlights here.

With the win, the Seahawks now sit alone atop the NFC West, jumping out to a 2-0 to start for the first time since 2006.

The Seahawks have won 10 of their past 11 home openers since 2003. The victory also gave Pete Carroll a fitting present on his 62nd birthday.

The Seahawks have now outscored San Francisco 71-16 in the last two meetings, both wins for Seattle.

The game was suspended for an hour due to unsafe weather conditions due to lightning visible from the stadium at 6:05 p.m., with the two teams tied at 0-0 and 3:13 left in the opening quarter.

The Seahawks needed the break. Up until the point, Seattle had managed just 27 yards of total offense. Seattle was 0-for-3 on third downs, and Russell Wilson was 0-for-6 passing with an interception to Eric Reid.

But Seattle finally got its offense on track. After struggling to run the ball against Carolina last week, Marshawn Lynch ran for 98 yards on 28 carries, including touchdown runs of 14 and 2 yards.

Lynch also had a 7-yard reception for a touchdown.

Russell Wilson was not at his best, but didn’t need to be. Wilson completed 8 of 19 passes for 142 yards, one touchdown pass to Lynch and one interception.

Seahawks inactives: Browner and Clemons out

Brandon Browner did not practice all week because of a hamstring issue, so it’s no surprise that he’s out for this evening’s contest against San Francisco.

Defensive end Chris Clemons, questionable heading into today’s game, also will be inactive as he works himself back into game shape.

Rookie running back Christine Michael is inactive as well. Michael was active last week for Carolina, but did not play a snap in that game. Instead, Spencer Ware will be active because he plays special teams.

For San Francisco, former Seahawks fourth round draft choice Chris Harper is inactive for San Francisco.

Here’s the full list.

Resilient Hawks get tough test in Carolina

Resilient. Relentless. Tough-minded.

Whatever word you want to use to describe it, the Seattle Seahawks showed the mental fortitude to outwork their opponent in a season-opening, 12-7 over the Panthers.

The Seahawks held onto a tenuous, five-point lead with the Panthers driving to take the lead late in the fourth quarter.

With 5:34 left in the game, Carolina running back DeAngelo Williams broke through the middle of Seattle’s defense and burst down the right sideline for a long gain. But as he lowered his head to prepare for contact at Seattle’s 8-yard line, Richard Sherman put his shoulder on the ball, loosening it up as Earl Thomas stripped the ball carrier from behind.

“I actually pulled a Winston right there,” said Sherman, referring to former teammate Winston Guy, now with Jacksonville, who jarred a ball loose in a similar manner against Green Bay in a preseason game this year. “He’ll throw his shoulder at the ball when he goes in to make a tackle and tries to pop the ball out. He doesn’t always secure the tackle, but it’s intentional.”
