It would appear that the NFC West is fairly wide open in 2016 with all four teams at 1-1 through the first two weeks. Two of those teams will face off in the Pacific Northwest on Sunday when the Seattle Seahawks host the San Francisco 49ers. Will the Seahawks offense ever show up and can the 49ers continue scoring bunches on bunches like they have early on in the season? This is a bigger game that many realize because of the team’s early efforts. Here is a look at the matchup.
The 49ers lost 46-27 on the road to the Carolina Panthers last week and have scored 55 points over their first two games behind Blaine Gabbert at quarterback. Gabbert has passed for 413 yards, three touchdowns and two interceptions early on and has been looking the way of Jeremy Kerley quite a bit. Kerley has ten catches for 90 yards to lead the team. Carlos Hyde has 122 rushing yards and two touchdowns for the season and will be needed to pound out some key yards in this one. San Francisco’s defense gets a struggling Seattle offense. Can they pull off the mini-upset on the road?
The Seahawks lost 9-3 on the road to the Los Angeles Rams and have scored just 15 points over the first two weeks. Russell Wilson has been injured but has thrown for 512 yards and a touchdown already this season. Doug Baldwin turned into Wilson’s favorite target late last season and continues to do so with 12 catches for 112 yards and that only touchdown. The running game is led by Christine Michael for now with his 126 rushing yards. The defense has given up just 19 points and will need to carry this team until the offense finally wakes up which could happen this week.
