SEATTLE -- Marshawn Lynch scored on touchdown runs of 14 and two yards and added a seven-yard TD reception in the second half, Seattle flustered Colin Kaepernick into his worst passing game as a starter and the Seahawks dominated the San Francisco 49ers in a 29-3 win Sunday night.

The game was delayed 60 minutes late in the first quarter when thunderstorms blew through the area. The highly-anticipated NFC West showdown was sloppy as opposed to sensational, but Lynch more than did his part.

Lynch finished with 135 total yards, including 98 yards rushing, making up for quarterback Russell Wilson hitting on just two of his first 10 throws with Seattle's receivers struggling to get open. His scoring run on the first drive of the second half gave the Seahawks a 12-0 lead and his TD catch pushed the advantage to 19-3 early in the fourth quarter.
