Game Day: San Francisco 49ers at Seattle Seahawks

Dec 14, 2014 at 12:00 AM--


Today, the San Francisco 49ers (7-6) will travel north to face their NFC West rival, the Seattle Seahawks (9-4) for the second time in 18 days. This time, they will meet up at CenturyLink Field in Seattle, Washington.

The 49ers are coming off of a humiliating 24-13 road defeat at the hands of the Oakland Raiders. The Seahawks are coming off of a 24-14 road win over the Philadelphia Eagles.


In January, the Seahawks ended the 49ers' season at CenturyLink Field. They can do it once again be killing their very slim playoff hopes today. The 49ers are looking to stay alive in their hunt for a fourth consecutive postseason appearance with a big win in Seattle.

During their last meeting just weeks ago, Seattle had 379 total yards of offense at Levi's Stadium on Thanksgiving night compared to the 49ers' 164. That 19-3 loss prompted 49ers CEO to post an apology to fans on Twitter, adding fuel to the speculation that head coach Jim Harbaugh's days with San Francisco may be numbered. A loss a week later to the pitiful Raiders, in a game where the 49ers would manage only 248 total yards, would not help Harbaugh's cause.

In his regular Monday press conference, Harbaugh dodged questions about his future with the team, but it is widely believed that without a strong playoff push, his time with the 49ers would be over.

On Saturday, the 49ers announced that linebacker NaVorro Bowman and defensive lineman Glenn Dorsey would be headed for the injured reserve list, ending any hopes of getting them back on the field this season. The team has already lost linebacker Patrick Willis for the season and had a number of key injuries which has lowered their chances of a playoff run.

The Seahawks have done an exceptional job running the football while the 49ers have somewhat abandoned the run, which was believed to be the team's main strength heading into the season.

The Seattle defense has allowed only 12 pass plays of 25 yards or more -- an NFL-low. The 49ers have had no pass plays of 25 yards or more in their past two games. 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick has only three touchdowns against the Seahawks as a starter. He has nine interceptions, a passer rating of 50.6 and is 1-4 against Seattle.

In running back Frank Gore's last three visits to Seattle, he has only 58 yards on 26 carries. Meanwhile, running back Marshawn Lynch has averaged more than 100 yards and scored eight touchdowns (six rushing and two through the air) for Seattle in the last seven meetings between these two rivals.

It's been a strange 2020 season, so why not end it on another strange note? The San Francisco 49ers are hosting a "home" game at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona, against the Seattle Seahawks.

While Arizona may not be the 49ers' home, they are the "home team" after the team moved to the state due to Santa Clara County restrictions banning contact sports.
