Frank Gore shakes off low numbers

Frank Gore said his ho-hum statistics Sunday were the results of the Seahawks stacking the line of scrimmage against him and playing good defense.

Gore has bludgeoned Seattle in past seasons, rushing for 212, 207 and 144 yards in previous meetings. In those games, he exposed Seattle’s safeties, who either were late in closing holes at the line of scrimmage or allowed Gore to break through their tackles.

Seattle has upgraded that position in recent years, and both their new safeties – Earl Thomas and Kam Chancellor – were effective against him Sunday.

Chancellor finished with a game-high nine tackles. Thomas was right behind him with eight stops. Both also tackled Gore behind the line of scrimmage at times.

“After me whooping up on them for so many years, they didn't want that to happen again," Gore said.
