San Francisco - Bye
The Seahawks resume NFC West play this weekend end as they head south to face the San Francisco 49ers at Candlestick Park. Kickoff is slated for 1:15 p.m. (PT) and the game will be televised on FOX (channel 13 in Seattle) and broadcast on 97.3 FM in Seattle.
This week's game versus the 49ers will mark the 20th time the two clubs have squared off in the regular season with Seattle holding a 10-9 series edge. The Seahawks have won eight of the last 11, including sweeping the season series in 2007.
Earlier this season on September 14, the 49ers won a shoot out in overtime, 33-30. Seattle could not hold on to a 20-13 halftime lead, or contain J.T. OSulilvan and Isaac Bruce, who hooked up for four catches for 153 yards on the day. In the end, Joe Nedney forced overtime with a 28-yard field goal and then kicked a 40-yarder in overtime for the win.
In the two games last season, Seattle outscored San Francisco by a combined score of 47-3, including a 24-0 shutout on Monday Night Football on November 12. It was the second time in the last eight meetings that Seattle held the 49ers offense to zero points. On September 30, Seattles defense recorded six sacks, including three by former Niner Julian Peterson, en route to a 23-3 win at Monster Park.
With a win, Mike Holmgren will take sole possession of 10th place in NFL history with 172 career wins. He is currently tied with Hall of Famer Joe Gibbs. Holmgren's current record stands at 171-115. He is 10-5 overall vs. his former team, 8-5 with Seattle and 2-0 with Green Bay.
