Richard Sherman INT leads to Seahawks’ first touchdown

The Seahawks and 49ers were struggling to gain traction early in Thursday’s game, and it took a Richard Sherman interception to finally get things going for Seattle.

The 49ers had a third-and-eight from their 30-yard line when quarterback Colin Kaepernick threw a deep pass intended for Brandon Lloyd. Sherman was in perfect position for his second interception of the season and ran it back to the San Francisco 45 with 5:29 to go in the first quarter. (Watch video of the interception here)

It was Sherman’s 22nd career interception, the most among active players in their first four seasons, according to the NBC broadcast.

That set up a seven-play, 45-yard touchdown drive.  Among the key plays was a 24-yard pass completion from Russell Wilson to Doug Baldwin and a 13-yard touchdown pass from Wilson to Robert Turbin with 1:29 to go in the period. (Watch video of the TD here)
