49ers @ Seahawks

Who will WIN this matchup?

San Francisco 49ers (2-9)

@ Seattle Seahawks (6-5)


Current odds:

San Francisco 49ers: (+400)

Seattle Seahawks: (-550)


The line for the game is Seattle by 9..5 points.

Quarterback Nick Mullens will make his fourth straight start but is on a short leash after throwing two interceptions in the team’s sluggish 27-9 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers last weekend. “I don’t think he played very well,” coach Kyle Shanahan told reporters of Mullens. “Just looking at some of our situations but it wasn’t all him. No one played very well, especially in the pass game. All around we didn’t do good enough.” San Francisco ranks 10th in defending the run (102.7 yards per game) and will be challenged by a Seattle offense that leads the NFL in rushing at 147.1.

Seattle has won its last two games to perk things up after the team was unable to find a sustained groove earlier this season. “There is just a real upbeat aura about this team,” Seattle coach Pete Carroll told reporters. “They’re real hungry to learn, they’re hungry for the challenges. They keep looking to the future and what’s up and what’s coming. It’s just been a really good group to work with.” Wilson is enjoying a strong season with 2,531 yards and 25 touchdowns against only five interceptions, while defensive end Frank Clark has been a standout with 10 sacks.

The Seahawks have won the past nine meetings – playoffs included.
