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.

Creating the ideal 2022 San Francisco 49ers schedule

By Wayne Breezie

As I searched the world wide web for exciting things to bring to the world, I couldn't help but draw inspiration from the great Matt Barrows of The Athletic. In a recent mailbag article, a fan presented the task of creating the ideal San Francisco 49ers schedule based on what we already know for home/away opponents. Here is my dream schedule for the 2022 49ers season. Week 1 vs. Cardinals - This would be a home game for the 49ers and must-see television. Trey Lance would get a second chance at the team that handed him his first loss. Kyler Murray vs. Lance is pay-per-view quality. Week 2 at Panthers - Now that Lance got his feet wet, he should have no problems commanding his troops against the Carolina Panthers. I

The NFL will unveil the league's complete 272-game 2022 schedule on Thursday night at 5:00 p.m. PT. It is common for select week-to-week opponent matchups to leak before the official announcement. I've created this tracker to collect those leaks as the official schedule release time approaches. As usual, the San Francisco 49ers will meet each NFC West team twice. On May 4, the NFL revealed that the 49ers will travel to Mexico City on November 21 to face the Arizona Cardinals at Estadio Azteca—a Week 11 primetime matchup on ESPN's Monday Night Football. 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 South and AFC West. NFL Kickoff Weekend will begin on



49ers rookie Kalia Davis not molding his game after D.J. Jones

By Rohan Chakravarthi

The San Francisco 49ers begin their rookie minicamp on Friday afternoon, giving fans and media their first look at the nine rookies the team drafted, as well as the undrafted free agents the team signed or invited to camp. One player that likely will not participate in team drills is sixth-round defensive tackle Kalia Davis, who is recovering from a torn ACL he suffered last fall, which likely played a role in his falling draft stock. Davis has had an intriguing journey, playing linebacker during his freshman season before transitioning to the defensive line, which he attributed to his bigger size. "Well really, I moved from linebacker to D-lineman because my body was changing," Davis said. "I [gained] a little too much weight. The biggest part about
