The Seahawks (1-2) will look to bounce back this weekend against the 49ers (2-1). Kickoff for this Sunday's game is set for 1:05 p.m. PT at Levi's Stadium. FOX 13 will carry the game live on TV, with 710 ESPN Seattle and KIRO Radio 97.3 covering the game on radio.
Here's what national and local media members are predicting:
The Bleacher Report NFL Staff are certain Coach Carroll and Russell won't fall 1-3, pushing the Seahawks to win in a shootout 27-26. Panelist Gagnon said, "I'm not betting against Wilson under these circumstances. No way he and Pete Carroll let this team fall to 1-3."
Sporting News Bill Bender also predicts a one-point win for the Seahawks in San Francisco 28-27. "The Seahawks and 49ers both lost in Week 3, which increases the urgency to keep up with the undefeated Rams and Cardinals. Seattle swept both meetings last year, and Russell Wilson will deliver a performance that increases the pressure to play Trey Lance in San Francisco."
The Los Angeles Times staff writer Sam Farmer is expecting the Seahawks to get back on track and win 27-24."The 49ers are coming off that devastating last-second home loss to the Packers, and the Seahawks were embarrassed at Minnesota. Russell Wilson gets his team back on track vs. division foe."
Ben Rolfe from Pro Football Talk predict the 49ers defeat Seahawks 24-21."The 49ers do not look like a team playing smoothly right now. Hampered by injuries, the offense has struggled at times in the last two weeks. In fact, the 49ers had to turn to Trey Lance a couple of times near the goal line in Week 3 to provide a spark. Playing against an explosive offense like the Seahawks will test the 49ers' defense. Nevertheless, their defensive line should be able to get the better of the Seahawks' concerning offensive line in this one."
Seattle Times Bob Condotta sees this matchup being "ominous" for the Seahawks, Condotta is picking the 49ers win 27- 21.** "Seattle has rarely had its back to the collective wall like this during the Russell Wilson era. And the way that Seattle has usually responded under Wilson — never losing three in a row — leads one to think that the Seahawks have it in them to pull off the upset — the 49ers are a 3-point favorite as this is written. But there's first times for everything, good or bad, and this just feels like an ominous matchup for Seattle."
NFL Network analyst Maurice Jones-Drew believes the Seahawks will get the job done on the road. "The Seattle Seahawks bounce back after a pair of losses to defeat the rival San Francisco 49ers on the road. The 'Hawks get it done behind a dazzling performance from Russell Wilson, who throws for four touchdowns and then runs one in for his fifth score of the day."
