Seahawks vs 49ers Preview

Seahawks Look For Consistency

So far this season, the Seattle Seahawks have struggled in at least one phase of the game in most of their games. Two weeks ago, it was their defense that struggled in an overtime loss to the Tennessee Titans. Last week, it was their offense that failed them, as they struggled to put points on the board against a Minnesota Vikings team that had been awful on defense in the weeks prior.

For the Seahawks to play well on both sides of the ball this week, they will need a consistent performance from Russell Wilson to start them off. Wilson led a Seahawks offense that scored just 17 points last week, which they will need to eclipse this week if they are going to have a shot at getting back to .500.

Fortunately, they play a 49ers team that was woeful on defense at home last week in their hopes of doing so.

49ers Aim For 3-1 Start

After a pair of road wins against subpar opponents, the San Francisco 49ers came home and lost in Week 3 to the Green Bay Packers. After falling behind 10-0, the 49ers fought back and looked like the better team for the majority of the game. But they relinquished their lead in the final minute, allowing Aaron Rodgers to hit big plays in the passing game to set up a game-winning field goal by Mason Crosby as time expired.

This week, the 49ers’ defense will be tested once again by Russell Wilson and the vertical passing game of the Seahawks. The loss of Jason Verrett will again loom large in this contest, as the Seahawks can burn the 49ers’ lesser corners with the likes of DK Metcalf and Tyler Lockett.

San Francisco will need to get pressure on the passer if they are going to avoid getting carved up by Wilson and the Seattle aerial attack.

NFL Picks This Week:

Who will win this Week 4 NFL game:

Both teams come into this game with some flaws that need to be addressed, but the scheduling spot favors the 49ers in a big way here. They are playing their second straight home game, while the Seahawks are playing their second straight contest on the road.

Expect the Niners to come out fired up and for them to prove themselves after their hiccup last week against Green Bay.

Expert Pick:

  • 49ers -2.5
