Former Utah State linebacker Bobby Wagner has had plenty of big games during his seven-year NFL career with Seattle, but he may have bested himself on Sunday during the Seahawks’ 43-16 win over the San Francisco 49ers.

Wagner recorded a statistic in every defensive category in the blowout win. The line read: a team-leading 12 total tackles, including eight solo stops, a 9-yard sack, two tackles for loss, two quarterback hurries, one interception, two pass deflections, a forced fumble and a fumble recovery.

The highlight was Wagner’s interception, a 98-yard pick-six, longest in team history, near the end of the game when he stepped in front of a Nick Mullens pass near the goal line and raced up the far sideline untouched.

The celebration was nearly as enjoyable as the play itself.

“I think that was the first pick-six of my life,” Wagner said postgame, according to the team website. “I was just trying to make sure the quarterback didn’t catch me, because if he did, everyone was going to give me a little crap. It was extra nice to be running along the 49ers sideline. I tried to look at (former Seattle teammate Richard Sherman), but I didn’t see him.”

Wagner sacked Mullens for a 9-yard loss on third down to end the 49ers’ first drive of the game, then added a quarterback hurry on a third-down play on San Francisco’s second drive.

He later forced San Francisco’s Jeff Wilson Jr. to fumble on a carry inside the Seattle red zone in the second quarter, recovered the fumble and returned it 11 yards to the Seahawks' 14, keeping the 49ers from scoring their first points of the game.

“You can’t talk about this game unless you talk about Bobby Wagner,” Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said, according to the team website. “He just had a phenomenal game. There’s not many more things the guy could do. He had (12) tackles, he took the ball away from them on a fumble, he had a sack, he had an interception for a touchdown, all-time ever longest play in the history of the franchise. Just did another marvelous job of taking care of all the leadership stuff that he does, too.

“He’s playing as good as you can play the game."
