San Francisco 49ers at Seattle Seahawks (-3): O/U 54 (-110/-110)
Last time out, the San Francisco 49ers visited the New England Patriots and left with a 33-6 blowout victory. San Francisco never trailed in this game and led by double digits from midway through the second quarter until the final whistle. Jimmy Garoppolo was 20/25 for 277 yards, zero touchdowns, and two interceptions. The offensive story of the day was running back Jeff Wilson Jr. who ran the ball 17 times for 112 yards and three touchdowns. San Francisco held the Patriots to 241 total yards of offense and forced four New England interceptions.
Seattle played in another Sunday night thriller when they visited the Arizona Cardinals and lost 37-34 in overtime. The Seahawks will be sick that they lost this one as they led 34-24 with under three minutes to go. Arizona scored a touchdown with 2:28 left and then hit the game tying field goal as time expired. The Cardinals won with a 48-yard field with 15 seconds remaining in the game. Russell Wilson had his worst game of the season as he went 33/50 for 388 yards, three touchdowns, three interceptions, and added an additional 84 yards on the ground. Tyler Lockett exploded with 15 receptions for 200 yards and three touchdowns.
Series History: The Seattle Seahawks have won 11 of the last 13 games and leads the all-time series 26-17.
