Quotable: "It's a little smaller. They didn't leave a lot of space over there for the visitors. Other than that, it feels the same. Standing on the other side didn't really feel any different for me." – 49ers cornerback Richard Sherman, via the Seattle Times, on being in the opposing locker room after a great run with the Seahawks

Key Stat: 5.8. The yards-per-carry average allowed by the San Francisco defense as Seattle dominated on the ground.
