Which quarterback will lead his team to victory tonight? Alex Smith or Russell Wilson
Seattle Seahawks (4-2) @ San Francisco 49ers (4-2) 8:20 p.m.
Candlestick Park, San Francisco, CA
The Seahawks have come out of nowhere to start their season winning four of their first six. Among those four were wins against the Packers, Patriots and Cowboys. All three of those teams were preseason picks to make the playoffs. What makes their start even more impressive is that they have been led by rookie Russell Wilson. Coming into the season Wilson was projected to be the third quarterback.
The 49ers have not disappointed either but they have given inconsistent efforts throughout the season. Case in point, last week the Giants whipped them 26-3 which followed the 49ers 45-3 blowout of the Buffalo Bills. The offense has been the inconsistent factor led by quarterback Alex Smith. The big question for the the 49ers is which Alex Smith will show up tonight. After spraining his middle finger last week, Smith tossed 3 interceptions against the Giants. In the 49ers four wins, Smith has seven touchdowns and zero interceptions.
The quarterbacks will be important tonight, but both defenses are strong against the run, which is the strength of each team on offense. Which team will break? I'm not sure either team will break in the running game defensively, but the 49ers rank 2nd in opponents passing yards per game. Go with the 49ers at home tonight. 49ers 24, Seahawks 20
