The San Francisco 49ers (12-3) have the chance to win the NFC West and gain the advantage of the local bout throughout the post-season “Sunday Night Football” with a win over the Seattle Seahawks (11-4). ). San Francisco would have locked up NFC West last week if the 49ers had defeated the Atlanta Falcons in Week 15, but the 49ers were upset in that game and would be the No. 1 seed. 5 with losses for Seattle on Sunday night.
Seattle could play to the advantage of the local race all the way to the end of the race, though Green Bay and New Orleans will lose early Sunday. The Seahawks would win a tiebreaker with these teams being the No. 1 team in the NFC with a 49ers win in that scenario, and would play for a first-round bye, whether the Packers or the Saints lost Week 17. Although Green Bay and New Orleans both win, Seattle could only win the No. 3 seed in the NFC with a victory over San Francisco.

Three things to look out for
Beast Mode is back
Seattle’s top three running backs in the season are all in injured reserve. Chris Carson, Rashaad Penny and C.J. Prosise has been season-ending injuries, so the Seahawks turn to a familiar person to carry the load. Marshawn Lynch have been signed to replenish rookie Travis Homer in the backfield, and Lynch is expected to see some action on Sunday night.
Lynch took tequila photos at a parking lot in Auckland two weeks ago, and no one knows if they are in game form. He retired at the end of last season after averaging 4.2 YPC in Oakland, so Seattle will probably test his ability in this game by giving him at least 10 cards.
Will Russell Wilson be Dangeruss on Sunday night?
Russell Wilson was fantastic for Seattle this season. Wilson will likely finish runner-up to Lamar Jackson in the NFL MVP award, completing 66.4% of his passes for 3,877 yards with 29 touchdowns and 5 interceptions. He has also had a great run, averaging 4.7 YPC, and has largely come up against San Francisco in the first meeting between the two teams.
George Kittle is available this time
Kittle was one of the most underrated players in the NFL this season. He has the best round edge in the league with the block running and trapping ability and his presence was crucial to making this offense one of the best in the NFC. Keith didn’t play the first time these teams met, and Seattle will find it difficult to stop him.
Player to watch
Jimmy Garoppolo wasn’t sharp against the Rams last week. He was fired six times and threw two fumbles and this almost led to the loss of San Francisco. The 49ers surpassed that performance to win, but they need to better protect Garoppolo on Sunday. Seattle fired Jimmy G five times in their first encounter, leading to Garoppolo’s worst performance of the season unaffected by the weather.
Seahawks vs. 49ers prediction
There are too many questions with Seattle’s current game, so expect San Francisco to take this game in defense and run the game.
