The Seattle Seahawks travel to Levi’s Stadium to take on the San Francisco 49ers. They are fresh off of a blowout win at home over the New Orleans Saints. Frankly, they look invincible at home, but people forget they are also excellent on the road. They are an impressive 5-1 on the road as they play a style that can win in any stadium and in any condition.
They have one of the top running backs in the game in Marshawn Lynch. They also have an MVP candidate at quarterback in Russell Wilson. Wilson has been very good this season with 22 touchdowns and only eight interceptions. He also has a quarterback rating over 100.
Beyond the stats on the football field, he can do it all: make every throw with touch or velocity, or run for first downs when he needs to. Most importantly, he lead his team to wins. He has changed the fortunes of the Seahawks. Having a dominant running game and an extremely stingy defense doesn’t hurt either.
The 49ers are no slouches either. They have an athletic quarterback of their own in Colin Kaepernick and an excellent defense in their own right. This will no doubt be a highly-competitive contest, especially in San Francisco. I still expect the Seahawks to find some way to pull it out. They may be the most complete team in the league from top to bottom. The Seahawks have home field all but secured, and it will be further cemented after Sunday.
