The game of the week features the San Francisco 49ers and the Seattle Seahawks battling for the domination of the NFC West as they meet at CenturyLink Field for Sunday Night Football.
The 49ers are coming of a tremendous win over the Patriots despite their early domination was erased in the second half. “Our team has now hung in in a lot of big-time pressure games,” said coach Jim Harbaugh, whose team is in the driver’s seat over 10-4 Green Bay for the NFC’s No. 2 seed. “They’ve overcome adversity. They’ve shown they can do that”.
San Francisco knows that Seattle is a dangerous team, having won five of the last six. “The Seahawks are a hot team right now,” 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick told the team’s official website. “Their defense is playing great. Their offense is putting up points. So we have to be ready”.
The Seahawks beat the Bills last week without much problem. Russell Wilson had a great showing running for three touchdowns and running for one more. “It’s a big division finish for us and we’ll see how it goes,” coach Pete Carroll said.
“All we can do is focus on this game right here. We’ll have no trouble focusing. They’re a great team and coming home and all that it will be exciting to get ready.”
Carrol and Harbaugh faced each other a lot in college football; the last time Harbaugh and Stanford gave Carroll and USC a tremendous beating. There’s bad blood here.
San Francisco is 1-4 ATS in its last 5 games when playing on the road against Seattle.
