Seattle Seahawks at San Francisco 49ers

The Seahawks bounce proper again into NFC West Division play with a visit all the way down to Santa Clara, California, to face the 49ers Sunday. The Niners received their first sport of the season two weeks in the past over the Giants, final week they have been off having fun with their bye week.
The final time these two groups met was again on September 17 within the Seattle house opener and the Seahawks simply barely pulled out a win 12-9.
On Sunday, the Seahawks will look to rebound after a tough loss to the Falcons on Monday night time whereas the 49ers will look to win their second sport in a row in a season that has been a battle beneath their new head coach Kyle Shanahan.
Listed below are 4 issues to search for in Sunday's sport that kicks off at 1:05 p.m.
1) Russell Wilson
Russell Wilson is the straw that stirs the Seahawks offensive drink and he has been ridiculously good this season. Even with some early turnovers final Monday night time in opposition to the Falcons that proved to be pricey, Wilson battled again and gave the Seahawks an opportunity to win.
Wilson comes into this weekend ranked fifth statistcally amongst quarterbacks in passing with 2,801 yards and he is ranked 34th within the league in speeding with 376 yards. Wilson has achieved all of it for the Seahawks offensively and he has turn into one of the thrilling gamers to look at within the NFL as a result of he merely won't ever stop on a play.
As this season has progressed, Wilson's stage of play has lifted his teammates. The offense as a complete has been bettering week to week, Wilson stated this week that fixed enchancment is the purpose.
"It’s simply specializing in the moments and persevering with to evolve and persevering with to progress, and proceed to like the journey that you simply’re on, so I believe that’s why our offense is doing actually good proper now; as a result of we've got numerous guys who've performed numerous soccer, and guys who've been right here for some time now, and guys who've achieved nice issues and perceive that course of and luxuriate in that course of," Wilson stated.
2) Dion Jordan.
Dwight Freeney was let go this week after solely 4 video games with the Seahawks and Dion Jordan could also be one cause why Freeney is now a Detroit Lion.
Till Jordan debuted in a Thursday night time sport in opposition to the Cardinals, the Seahawks weren't positive what they have been going to get from the participant that missed mini camp, coaching camp and the primary 9 weeks of the season.
The as soon as dominant, third general select of Oregon had not performed in a sport for the reason that final week of the 2014 season with the Dolphins. What the Seahawks acquired was a participant that may very well be dominant once more. Jordan performed 33 snaps with a quarterback sack and three quarterback hits in opposition to Arizona, and that was simply the beginning.
Jordan has progressed sufficient that he can transfer ahead and anticipate to be a gradual a part of a defensive position rotation that should get to the quarterback.
three) Byron Maxwell
The Seahawks weren't positive Byron Maxwell was going to play final week however as soon as Shaq Griffin left with a concussion after solely two performs in opposition to the Falcons, Maxwell jumped proper in.
Whereas there was a lot upheaval within the secondary with accidents to Earl Thomas, Kam Chancellor and Richard Sherman, there was one thing comforting in seeing #41 on the market for the Seahawks once more.
Whereas he did not have a flawless sport, and was simply attempting to get his legs again beneath him, Maxwell performed effectively sufficient in opposition to the Falcons to earn the beginning this week whereas Griffin stays within the NFL concussion protocol.
"He did nice," Pete Carroll stated final week when requested about Maxwell's sport Monday night time "Yeah, Byron performed effectively and did an excellent job. Had a move interference in there, however he did an excellent job. He appeared just like the man that we hoped he would appear to be and that's and not using a entire lot of preparation. He actually kicked proper again into the method and the model of play and he's a robust, well-suited man and I am fired up that he's with us and I'd suppose that he ought to solely get higher and extra snug with what we're doing and I've no downside with him taking part in."
four) Operating Recreation
The Seahawks working sport merely has not gotten off the bottom this season. It has been irritating for Seahawks coaches and gamers however they refuse to desert part of the sport that may steadiness out their offense.
Mike Davis confirmed a spark for the Seahawks working the ball in opposition to the Falcons however he needed to go away the sport with a groin harm and there is a fairly good probability he will not play in opposition to the 49ers.
Eddie Lacy, DJ McKissic and Thomas Rawls will deal with the ball carrying duties for a Seahawks workforce that at present is ranked 18th within the NFL in speeding.
Rawls is keen to get again to kind because the onerous nosed, evasive runner he was just a few years in the past when he took over for an injured Marshawn Lynch and that could be why Rawls is struggling.
I believe typically, he can attempt too onerous on issues," offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell stated about Thomas Rawls final week. "I believe I talked about that a few weeks in the past. There’s occasions that you simply simply must be affected person and form of let the sport come to you and never attempt so onerous to make one thing occur. I believe that Thomas is such a pushed man and he’s actually intense, so he simply desires to make one thing occur so dangerous, that typically you'll be able to press and take a look at too onerous. I believe he’s achieved that slightly bit.”
Any individual wants to interrupt by means of within the working sport for the Seahawks, not one Seahawks runningback has ran for 100 yards or extra in a sport this season. If Rawls adjustments his strategy and lets issues come to him on Sunday, he may very well be the primary again to realize vital yardage in a single sport since Chris Carson went on Injured Reserve.
Benefit from the sport. I'll have reside studies Sunday night time from Santa Clara on KOMO Information at 5 p.m. and 6 p.m.
