It’s Thanksgiving this Thursday and as per tradition, three games will played on Thursday instead of the usual one game. The final game will be played between the San Francisco 49ers and the Seattle Seahawks. This game will be under the Thursday Night Football bracket. The Niners-Seahawks will follow the Detroit Lions-Green Bay Packers and Dallas Cowboys-Washington Commanders on the same day.
The Niners will come into the game on the back of a couple of dominating wins. Before those games, they were on a three-game losing streak. It has been a rather up-and-down season for the Niners. After winning their first five games of the season, they dropped their next three. After a bye in week 9, they have now won their last two games and are 7-3 so far this season.
The Seahawks on the other hand bring a record of 6-4 to the game. They have had a mixed season as well. The Seahawks have won games against the Arizona Cardinals, the Washington Commanders and the New York Giants. However, they lost against well-coached teams such as the Los Angeles Rams and the Cincinnati Bengals. They were defeated by the Rams in their last game.
This will be the first meeting between these two teams this season. The Niners and the Seahawks met in the playoffs last season. The San Francisco-based team demolished the Seahawks that day by 18 points. Niners’ QB Brock Purdy had a tremendous game on his postseason debut as he threw for 332 yards and 3 touchdowns while completing 18 of his 30 passes.

Why the San Francisco 49ers can win?

The Niners’ star receiver Brandon Aiyuk is second in the league with 19.3 yards per reception and he is averaging more than 92 receiving yards per game. The Niners QB Brock Purdy tore up the Buccaneers on Sunday as he posted a perfect passer rating of 158.3. He became only the second quarterback in 49ers history to reach that mark. He also leads the league in completing rate this season.
Why the Seattle Seahawks can win?
The Seattle Seahawks’ success this season is largely due to a pair of defenders in Bobby Wagner and Devon Witherspoon. Wagner is a top-five tackler this season, with 105 tackles. He has crossed the 100-tackle mark for the 12 consecutive seasons. The rookie Witherspoon has defended 13 passes and is top-five in that category this season. Witherspoon also has 52 tackles and 3 sacks this season.
The Seahawks’ defense has been brilliant so far this season. They have only given up 18.6 points per game in their last seven outings. Seattle held the Los Angeles Rams to only 267 total yards and 4.5 yards per play in Week 11. They are also giving up only 5.1 yards per play this season. Their defense will have to be on their toes against a talented Niners offense.
