Follow me and tell me if you agree or disagree with my pick @bprunsportsmenm

From week to week I will be looking at a matchup that I consider the game of the week. This week I’m looking at 49ers @ Seahawks (or Forty-Whiners @ the She-hawks) In a matchup of two teams that not only division rivals, but both are Super Bowl contenders as well.

49ers advantage: With how dominant the Kaepernick-Boldin combination was last week look for Seattle to put Sherman on Boldin and double Davis.  Which will then open up the read option for the 49ers and allow Kaepernick to run wild.

Seahawks advantage: To just say the 12th man would be to easy.  Beast Mode (Lynch) has ran for over 100 yds on the 49ers in two of the last three match ups.  With the subpar performance Lynch (17 car. 43 yds) had last week he’ll have them skittles ready.  Therefore, allowing Russell “last name” Wilson to go deep off of play action.

Who will win and why:  This game will be a tougher matchup than the 42-13 beatdown the Seahawks handed the Niners at the end of last season.  However, Seattle is strong and somewhat dominant at home; Wilson has never last a home game as the starter.  Plus Wilson doesn’t make many mistakes, and you’d have to assume Lynch continues his success against the 49ers defense.

Seattle Wins 28-17
