This NFC West battle will not be what it usually is because the 49ers are not a good team. After blowing the Super Bowl last season, they will not be headed back to the playoffs. The Seahawks on the other hand, will be looking to improve their playoff seed, while also looking to roll into the 1st round with momentum.
The Seahawks are back on top of the NFC West after a 20-9 win last week against the Los Angeles Rams. Seattle’s quarterback, Russell Wilson, threw for 225 yards in this game with just one touchdown. Seattle did not exactly have some great offensive day either, totaling just 292 yards.
Overall, this Seattle offense ranks 13th in total yards per game. They are the 14th best passing offense and 11th best rushing offense. Despite those mediocre numbers, they are the 7th best scoring offense, averaging 28.9 points per game.
The Seahawks’ defense has been improving week after week and now look like a unit that could help take this team to a Super Bowl. Over their last 7 games, they have not allowed more than 23 points. This is far better than early in the season when they were allowing nearly 30 points per game. At this point in the season, the Seahawks are allowing the 23rd most total yards per game. They rank last when defending the pass, but 5th against the run. Their points allowed has dropped to 23.2 per game, which has them ranked 13th.
San Francisco 49ers
The 49ers’ season has really come off the rails, which is why they will be guaranteed a losing season. They do not have a real option at quarterback and will probably need to rely on the ground game. San Fran also does not get to play in their own stadium because of the ridiculous ruling from the county they play in that states contact sports are not allowed. The 49ers beat Arizona last time out 20-12 and will be at least looking to hurt the Seahawks seeding. The 49ers still have an average offense, ranking 15th in total yards, 13th in passing yards and 13th in rushing yards per game. They also only score 23.5 points per game.
Defensively is where the 49ers are going to win this final game. They allowed 350 total yards to the Cardinals and held them to under 250 passing yards. They also did a decent job stopping the run, allowing just 120 yards.
San Francisco now ranks 5th in total defense, 4th in passing defense and 6th in rushing defense. They are allowing just 24.3 points per game, which has helped keep them in games with that average offense on the other side.
