How to watch 49ers vs. Seahawks football game

The Seattle Seahawks are 7-2 against the San Francisco 49ers since September of 2016, and they’ll have a chance to extend that success on Sunday. Seattle and San Francisco will face off in an NFC West battle at 4:25 p.m. ET at State Farm Stadium. Both teams seek to continue their momentum from their previous wins.

It was all tied up 6-6 at the half for the Seahawks and the Los Angeles Rams this past Sunday, but Seattle stepped up in the second half for a 20-9 win. Seattle’s QB Russell Wilson did his thing and passed for one TD and 225 yards on 32 attempts in addition to punching in one rushing touchdown. Wilson ended up with a passer rating of 131.90.

Meanwhile, San Francisco was expected to lose against the Arizona Cardinals this past Saturday, but instead they received a nice stocking stuffer. The 49ers came out on top against Arizona by a score of 20-12. RB Jeff Wilson had a stellar game for San Francisco as he picked up 183 yards on the ground on 22 carries in addition to snatching one receiving TD.

Seattle is now 11-4 while San Francisco sits at 6-9. Seattle has clinched a playoff berth as the current third seed in the NFC. San Francisco has been eliminated from playoff contention.

Seattle is the favorite in this one, with an expected 5.5-point margin of victory. The smart bettors have been the ones to keep their money in their wallets whenever they hit the road.

A pair of defensive stats to keep in the back of your head while watching: The Seahawks are stumbling into the matchup with the most passing yards allowed per game in the league, having given up 302.5 on average. To make matters even worse for Seattle, the 49ers enter the contest with only 11 rushing touchdowns allowed, good for fourth best in the NFL.

49ers vs Seahawks predictions: Will the Niners end the season on a positive note?

The San Francisco 49ers wrap up their 2020 NFL regular season with a home game against the NFC West-leading Seattle Seahawks. Quarterback C.J. Beathard made his first start in more than two years last week and helped the Niners defeat the Arizona Cardinals.

San Francisco played Seattle last year’s regular-season finale, but the stakes aren’t nearly as high this time around. The 49ers are 6-9, and this game will impact their draft positioning. It will depend on what happens around the league, but we will have a clearer picture of where the Niners will be selected after this contest.

As has been the case in the major of their games this season, the 49ers will be without two of their best offensive players. Left tackle Trent Williams and receiver Brandon Aiyuk will miss the contest due to injuries.

The Seahawks are 11-4 and are playing for playoff positioning. They need some help from the Chicago Bears and Carolina Panthers if they want to move up the NFC standings.

Here are the predictions for Week 17 from Niners Nation contributors:

Kyle Posey: Since Week 8, the Seahawks are sixth in the NFL in defensive success rate, which is one spot behind the 49ers. Seattle’s job will be much easier on Sunday as the 49ers will be without two of their best offensive players in Brandon Aiyuk and Trent Williams. C.J. Beathard will have his hands full as he’ll be throwing to Richie James, Kendrick Bourne, and River Cracraft. Thankfully for C.J., he’ll have George Kittle, who might have 27 targets in this game.

On the other side of the ball, it’d be difficult for the secondary to play worse than they did against Seattle in the previous matchup where DK Metcalf looked superhuman. Emmanuel Moseley won’t be targeted double-digit times this game. Instead, it’s up to Jason Verrett and Ahkello Witherspoon to slow down a Seahawks passing attack that’s effective, but it hasn’t been the same as it was earlier in the season. Then again, who knows how the 49ers pass rush will affect Russell Wilson.

Both teams struggle to run the ball. One team struggles to throw the ball, and it’s not the home team. A Beathard mistake is your difference in this one.

Kyle’s prediction: Seattle 23, 49ers 14

Rob Guerrera: Even with the stakes being far lower than they were a year ago, I still get juiced up for a game against the Seahawks. There are too many old wounds there to pass this off as a meaningless game.

It’s going to be an uphill battle for the 49ers without so many weapons, but we’ve seen Kyle Shanahan pull magic out of his hat before. I expect a lot of safe; short passes for Beathard and a heavy diet of George Kittle and Kyle Juszczyk.

Defensively, the 49ers will do enough to make it respectable, but with Seattle playing for a possible bye next week, they’ll be looking for blood. I think Russ is going to look deep early and often – especially in the direction of Ahkello Witherspoon. The game could depend on whether his solid play the last two weeks continues.

Rob’s prediction: Seattle 28, 49ers 17

Jas Kang: A year ago, this was the matchup of Week 17, but injuries have killed any hope of a return trip to the for San Francisco. Beathard did well protecting the ball last week as the 49ers’ running attack got going with running back Jeff Wilson Jr. tearing up Arizona for 200 total yards. I am interested to see how the Niners’ defense will respond in what could be Robert Saleh’s last game as defensive coordinator. The Seahawks could clinch home-field advantage with a win and losses by the Green Bay Packers and New Orleans Saints. The league scheduled all three games featuring the top-three NFC teams for the afternoon window. If the Packers and Saints are up big, I can see Pete Carroll resting his starters in the second half to keep them fresh for next weekend’s playoff game. Without Williams and Aiyuk, the 49ers will struggle to move the ball in the first half but will make it close late.

The Panthers scored a win over the Washington Football Team this past Sunday, 20-13. The win snapped a three-game losing streak for Carolina. Curtis Samuel had a career-high 158 scrimmage yards (106 receiving) last week, his second career game with 100-plus yards.

Jeremy Chinn leads all rookies with 109 tackles, the most by a Carolina. rookie since 2012. The Panthers have lost six of their last seven meetings with the Saints. Mike Davis (ankle) is doubtful for Week 17, while Christian McCaffrey (quad) is out.

What you need to know about the Saints

Meanwhile, New Orleans raced past the  Minnesota Vikings last Friday in a 52-33 victory. The Saints are the No. 2 seed in the NFC entering Week 17. They can clinch the No. 1 seed with a win over the Panthers combined with a Seahawks win and a Packers loss. If all three of those teams win, New Orleans will remain the No. 2 seed heading into the playoffs. If the Saints win and the Seahawks and Packers lose, they will finish the regular season as the No. 3 seed. If New Orleans loses to Carolina there is no chance of earning the top seed in the conference.

The Saints will be short-handed at running back for the season finale, though, as Alvin Kamara, Latavius Murray, Dwayne Washington and Mike Burton have all bene ruled out due to health and safety protocols. D.J. Swearinger has also been ruled out. Marcus Williams (ankle) is out for Week 17. Drew Brees passed for 287 yards and had three TDs (two passing) vs. 0 INTs for a 118.4 rating in the Week 7 meeting. He has two-plus TD passes in three of his past four games at Carolina.
