Gameday: San Francisco 49ers at Seattle Seahawks

Sep 15, 2013 at 12:01 AM--




Tonight, the San Francisco 49ers will travel to Seattle to play the Seahawks at CenturyLink Field. The 49ers and Seahawks each won their home matchup against the other in 2012.

The most recent matchup was a 42-13 win by the Seahawks in Seattle on December 23 of 2012. This series will continue the ongoing rivalry of Jim Harbaugh and Pete Carroll, a rivalry that started in college. It will also feature a showdown between two of the most dynamic quarterbacks in the league in the 49ers' Colin Kaepernick and the Seahawks' Russell Wilson.

Another interesting matchup to watch will be Anquan Boldin and whoever lines up across from him. Will it be the Seahawks' best corner Richard Sherman or will the 49ers try to avoid Sherman by lining Boldin up all over the field as they did against the Packers last week? Boldin had 13 catches for 208 yards and a touchdown against Green Bay.


Last week, the 49ers (1-0) beat the Green Bay Packers 34-28. The Seahawks (1-0) also won their season opener 12-7 over the Carolina Panthers.

For the 49ers, RB LaMichael James (knee) is listed as questionable. For the Packers, DT Jordan Hill (biceps) is out. CB Brandon Browner (hamstring) and S Jeron Johnson (hamstring) are doubtful. DE Chris Clemons (knee) is questionable. DE Cliff Avril (hamstring), T Michael Bowie (shoulder), DT Tony McDaniel (groin), DT Brandon Mebane (ankle), WR Sidney Rice (knee) and TE Luke Willson (oblique) are probable.

The San Francisco 49ers could finish the 2021 season with 10 wins and end up being No. 3 in the division standings. That second part is a certainty with the Los Angeles Rams and Arizona Cardinals fighting for the NFC West title. The Niners remain in the playoff hunt and will need to beat the Rams on Sunday to clinch a playoff berth. A loss could mean they watch the postseason from home. Finishing third in the division this season means some good news for next season. San Francisco might benefit from an easier schedule in 2022. The 49ers will face the third-place teams in the NFC East, NFC North, and AFC East. The team is also slated to play the entire NFC West and AFC West. Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle

The San Francisco 49ers are heading back to the playoffs for the first time since their 2019 Super Bowl run after a thrilling Week 18 overtime victory against the NFC West champion Los Angeles Rams. The 49ers were a 13-3 powerhouse in 2019, earning the #1 seed and a first-round bye, but this 2021 version, a 10-game winner and the 6th seed, may actually be better positioned to win it all than the 2019 squad.

The Risk and Reward of the 49ers Starting Trey Lance on Sunday

By Chris Beno
Jan 5

Last Sunday, rookie quarterback Trey Lance showed improvement since his first, and only start in Week 5. Lance completed 16 of 23 pass attempts for 249 yards, two touchdowns, and an interception—a very Jimmy Garoppolo-like stat line. After struggling to find an offensive rhythm early in the first half, Lance came out guns blazing in the second, spreading the ball all over the field, especially outside of the numbers, and targeting the deeper and intermediate routes on pass plays. Trey Lance brought a vertical element to the 49ers offense in his second career start.Lance averaged the most air
