As of now, the Seahawks (4-5) have a chance to earn their playoffs position. The team is also two games behind from Green Bay and Atlanta for a wild card spot. In order to earn their spot, they need win more games consistently.
Their loss against Arizona was blamed on their inability to hold a fourth-quarter lead. For their next game, they have to fight tooth and nail against the two-time defending NFC champions.
The 49ers (3-6) are now on their rebuilding phase. The team gives Blaine Gabbert a quarterback position for two consecutive games as they move from the Colin Kaepernick era. the 49ers won against Atlanta two week ago, with final score of 17-16.
The fans of 49ers are thinking if Gabbert will grab more wins for the team than Kaepernick, and if the team will defeat the Seahawks.
For predictions in the upcoming game, Grant Cohn of the Press Democrat detailed in his report what 49ers should do to win the match.
He said Gabbert should step up in the game against the Seahawks. He can start the offensive attack easily and has the ability to throw the ball quickly.
The 49ers should credit "Blaine for playing at game tempo, and allowing himself and his teammates to be successful because he was playing fast," said Geep Chhryst, offensive coordinator for 49ers.
On other hand, Bob Condotta of Seattle Times breaks down the keys to win the game for the Seahawks.
According to his report, the last thing the Seahawks want to do is let the San Francisco hang around, since they are struggling during the first quarter of games. Throughout the season, the 49ers have yet to score a touchdown in the first quarter, and they only scored in the first quarter in three out of nine games.
Furthermore, the Seahawks should grab Gabbert because he is a scrambler and athletic player.
"That's the one thing that stood out on tape. You're used to looking at their offense with Kaepernick out there and his ability to scramble, and Gabbert, he maintains some of that ability, also," said Kris Richard, defensive coordinator for the Seahawks.
