San Francisco 49ers and Seattle Seahawks find themselves in the bottom two spots in the ultra-competitive NFC West. Needless to say, this could be an early season-defining encounter for both sides.

The 49ers opened their campaign with wins over battlers the Lions (41-33) and Eagles (17-11), but they were sunk by a late field goal against the Packers last week after hauling in a 17-0 deficit.

The Seahawks started solidly with a 28-16 win over the Colts, but since then they were pipped in overtime by the Titans (33-30) and sunk to a dismal 30-17 loss to the Vikings. The Seattle secondary has fallen apart in the past fortnight

The Seahawks have dominated this rivalry over the past decade, winning 13 of the teams’ past 15 clashes. Last season they prevailed 37-27 at home and 26-23 at Levi’s Stadium, with Russell Wilson chalking up six TD passes across the two victories.

Verdict

The Niners have shown enough so far in 2021 to get behind them as only a narrow favourite here, with the struggling Seahawks’ secondary negating any advantage the Wilson v Garoppolo battle may give the visitors.
