(7) Seattle Seahawks @ (2) San Francisco 49ers
One of the biggest surprises of this season is the Seattle Seahawks making the 2022 playoffs and what an exciting way to do so. They owe many thanks to refs in their game last Sunday and of course to the Detroit Lions who went into GB and did what they needed to do, win! This will be their third matchup of the season for these division rivals, with SF owning the 2-0 record.
This is going to be a fun game to get the weekend started, a lot of pressure on the young QB Brock Purdy who has filled the QB void in SF but, this is a new season and we have a veteran QB in Seattle with Geno Smith. The 49ers have the weapons around Purdy with CMC, Brandon Aiyuk, and Deebo Samuel to name a few, and a defense that ranks 1st in the NFL. Finishing out the regular season, SF is 7-1ATS in their last 8 games whereas SEA is 1-7 in their last 8.
Yes, the Seahawks are coming off a big win last week to get them into this Wild Card game but they have struggled in the 2nd half of the season and a big part of that is the play of Geno Smith. This is a new season within the season and yes, Purdy has never played in the playoffs however this defense is better than good, and they are scary. Purdy has been getting the job done by finding his go-to targets with smart football plays and I expect that to carry over into the playoffs. Kyle Shannahan is an experienced coach and is going to come out of the gate fast. Look to back the over as well, the over is 5-0 in the 49ers’ last five games played on grass.
