TNF: 49ers vs Seahawks Prediction and Game Thread

It’s Week 12 of Thursday Night Football as the Seattle Seahawks host the San Francisco 49ers

NFL: NFC Wild Card Round-Seattle Seahawks at San Francisco 49ers Cary Edmondson-USA TODAY Sports

Thursday Night Football, Week 12. Tonight the Seattle Seahawks host the San Francisco 49ers. The 49ers are 7 point home favorites according to DraftKings Sportsbook.

This is a classic NFC West scrum. The 6-4 Seattle Seahawks are currently sitting in 2nd place in the AFC West, one game back of the 7-3 San Francisco 49ers. A win tonight would vault the Seahawks into 1st place in the division. The Seahawks have struggled scoring points lately. They have scored 20 points or less in four of their last six games. The passing offense just hasn’t been there, as Geno Smith has come back to earth after a surprisingly great 2022 campaign.

The first place San Francisco 49ers got off to a 5-0 start to the season before unraveling a bit, losing three straight. They have righted the ship since then with two straight victories. The 49ers are good to great at almost everything. They have a quarterback who is leading the NFL in passer rating. They have an over-abundance of offensive weapons. They pass the ball well, run the ball well and play great defense. I am hard-pressed to identify any real weaknesses with this team. They may be the best team in the NFL.

I’m taking the 49ers on the road to defeat the Seahawks tonight. I have submitted my pick using the widget from our partners at Tallysight. You can follow all my picks throughout the season, as I prove for another season how I’m not made to be a gambler. Seriously, I cannot stress enough how bad an idea it would be to bet real money based on my picks. Don’t do it. Don’t even consider it. Make your own picks, and good luck.
