The 49ers were down 34-29.
The Seahawks were down 28-24.
The 49ers started at their own 20.
The Seahawks started at their own 20.
The 49ers’ first play was an eight-yard run by Frank Gore.
The Seahawks’ first play was a 31-yard pass down the left sideline to Marshawn Lynch.
Gore rushed 33 yards to Baltimore’s seven-yard line.
After Jermaine Kearse’s fortunate reception put Seattle at New England’s five-yard line, Lynch rushed four yards on the next play.
The 49ers gave LaMichael James(!) a carry before throwing three incomplete passes in Michael Crabtree’s direction.
The Seahawks targeted Ricardo Lockette on a pass that was intercepted by Malcolm Butler.
The situations weren’t identical, but one can see how Bruce Miller and Joe Staley might have a different perspective on the Seahawks’ now-infamous decision to throw to Lockette.
Marshawn should have said “yall know why I’m here right?”

And in case you weren’t sure what Staley meant by that tweet …
