By the Numbers: Recapping the 49ers Overtime Victory over the Seahawks

The San Francisco 49ers were able to get the monkey off their back and snap a 10-game losing streak against the Seattle Seahawks with a 26-23 victory in Week 15. Following four quarters of exchanging scores, it was Robbie Gould who capped a seven-play, 44-yard overtime drive with a 36-yard game-winning field goal.

Take a look at the notable numbers and stats that helped the 49ers seal their first win over Seattle since 2013.

3 consecutive punts forced by the 49ers defense in each of the Seahawks final three possessions of the game, two in regulation and one in overtime.

7 wins in December under head coach Kyle Shanahan over the last two seasons compared to just one loss.

11.0 sacks on the season for DeForest Buckner. Buckner sacked Russell Wilson twice on Sunday, bringing his total to four against the Seahawks this season. Buckner became the first member of the 49ers to register double-digit sacks since Aldon Smith finished with 19.5 sacks in 2012.

36 yard game-winning field goal in overtime by Robbie Gould. This marked Gould's sixth-career game-winning field goal in overtime and his first since 2013. It also marked Gould's third game-winner with the 49ers since coming to San Francisco in 2017.

97 yard kickoff return for a touchdown by Richie James Jr. It marked the first time a member of the 49ers returned a kick for a touchdown since Ted Ginn Jr. registered a 102-yard kickoff return for a touchdown against Seattle in 2011. James Jr. also became the first 49ers rookie to register a kickoff return for a touchdown since running back Amos Lawrence in 1981. James Jr.'s kick return score was just the fourth in the NFL this season (Jakeem Grant, Darius Jennings and Cordarrelle Patterson).

98 yard drive that was capped by Garrett Celek's 41-yard touchdown in the second quarter. The 10-play march down the field marked the team's longest drive since 2002 (12-play, 99-yard drive in 2002 at Seattle).

111 points scored by Gould this season. He became the first member of the 49ers to score 100-plus points in consecutive seasons since Phil Dawson in 2013-14.

689 total yards thrown by Nick Mullens against the Seahawks this season. Mullens' 689 yards are the most passing yards Seattle has allowed by any quarterback in a single season since their franchise inception in 1976.

110.6 passer rating for Mullens. Mullens completed 20-of-29 passing for 275 yards and one touchdown. His 110.6 passer rating is his second-highest of the season (Week 9 vs. Oakland Raiders – 151.9).

1,513 career points for Gould. He became the 23rd kicker in NFL history to register at least 1,500 career points.
