Local and national media predict the winner of Sunday's game between the Seattle Seahawks and San Francisco 49ers at CenturyLink Field.
Elliot Harrison, NFL.com: Seahawks 34, 49ers 10
Harrison: Well, Kyle Shanahan confirmed that Mullens will be the starter this week. He'll struggle to match Russell Wilson, who comes in toting a 25:5 TD-to-INT ratio and will be throwing against a secondary that has picked off two passes.
Pete Prisco, CBSSports.com: Seahawks 27, 49ers 10
Prisco: The Seahawks have impressed the past few weeks and are on the verge of a soft part of their schedule, starting with this one. Russell Wilson is playing outstanding football and that will carry over here. Look for a big game from Wilson and the Seahawks in an easy rout.
Nick Wagoner, ESPN.com: Seahawks 27, 49ers 13
Wagoner: The Niners' futility against the Seahawks dates to 2013 and goes back even further in games played in Seattle. It's hard to envision that tide turning here as the Seahawks surge and the 49ers are in the mix for the No. 1 overall pick with former practice squader Nick Mullens at quarterback. Russell Wilson is 11-2 against the Niners in his career and should get to an even dozen here.
Brady Henderson, ESPN.com: Seahawks 30, 49ers 17
Henderson: The Seahawks haven't lost to the 49ers since 2013, and it hasn't happened in Seattle since Jim Harbaugh's team completed a season sweep on Christmas Eve in 2011. Seattle wins another while fighting for a playoff spot.
Michael David-Smith, ProFootballTalk.com: Seahawks 34, 49ers 20
MDS: The Seahawks are playing hard and appear to be heading toward the playoffs in what easily could have been a rebuilding year. That’s a credit to Pete Carroll.
Mike Florio, ProFootballTalk.com: Seahawks 24, 49ers 13
Florio: Richard Sherman returns home with a chance to spoil a Seattle playoff run. Unfortunately for Sherman, there aren’t enough players as talented as Sherman around him.
David Steele, Sporting News: Seahawks 33, 49ers 17
Steele: Finding a way for the 49ers to beat the Seahawks relies on stopping Russell Wilson, and there really seems to be no way for them to do that. After a string of surprisingly effective rushing totals, the Seahawks beat the Panthers last week with just 75 yards on the ground, and with Wilson simply being unstoppable.
BleacherReport.com: Seahawks 30, 49ers 16
BR: Seattle quarterback Russell Wilson is on fire, having thrown 20 touchdown passes to two interceptions while posting a 118.5 rating since Week 3, and that shouldn't change at home against a toothless and shorthanded defense.
Jim Moore, 710Sports.com: Seahawks 24, 49ers 20
Moore: I don’t see the 49ers pulling off the upset, but I’m guessing it will be close to the finish. The Seahawks rarely get blown out, but they don’t blow anyone out either.
The Seahawks and 49ers will meet for the 40th time in the regular season this Sunday in California. Take a look back at photos from past games played between the two teams.
