Seattle (11-1) is coming off a dominant 34-7 rout of the New Orleans Saints on Monday Night Football that sent a message around the league: the Seahawks will be a force in the playoffs, especially if they can lock up home field advantage, something they are inching closer and closer toward with each successive win. A win today would give the Seahawks eight in a row and also clinch the NFC West and a first-round bye.
The Seahawks have won an amazing 14 consecutive games at home, but today's game will be played on the road in San Francisco. Never fear, Seattle fans, as the Russell Wilson-led Seahawks have won five in a row on the road and can set a franchise record with six road wins in a row should they win today. They have won their past two against the 49ers and can move one win away from home field advantage in the playoffs with a win.
The last two games between these two teams have been lopsided affairs. The Seahawks held the 49ers offsense to a total of 520 yards in both combined when Colin Kaepernick was struggling. The score differential in those games was 71-16, and it's hard to imagine any odds favoring the 49ers today after what the Seahawks just did to Drew Brees and the Saints in primetime. Watch 49ers vs Seahawks online live free streaming on Fox today to see if the 49ers can play a closer football game and pull off an upset win.
Kaepernick was solid for the 49ers (8-4) last week as they defeated the St. Louis Rams 23-13 and took a one-game lead over the Arizona Cardinals for the final wild card playoff spot in the NFC. The Cardinals play the Rams today so the 49ers have to secure a win with Arizona being the favorite in that game. Kaepernick has four touchdowns and no interceptions over the past two games, both wins, and is completing over 65 percent of his passes.
Wide receiver Vernon Davis has been on a roll for the 49ers with three touchdown catches over the past two games. Historically he hasn't fared well against the Seahawks, and the 49ers might be looking at a long field more often than not on offense as they continue to pile up penalties. Last week they had a total of nine and were lucky to escape their game against the Rams with a win.
