The San Francisco 49ers were in an early 7-0 hole after their defense failed to stop Russell Wilson and Co. Then rookie Richie James Jr. changed the complexion of the game in a hurry with a 97-yard kickoff return for touchdown.

That gave the 49ers a 7-6 lead. If the 49ers are going to beat their divisional rival, they’ll need more big plays like this one.
