The 49ers will face the Seattle Seahawks at home this week Thursday night. The game will be played in San Francisco at Candlestick Park at 8:20 PM ET. San Fran will look to bounce back after a very disappointing loss to the New York Giants last week. They had hoped to get some sort of revenge on the Giants who knocked them out of the playoffs last season. Seattle comes into the game after a huge win at home against the Patriots last week. The two teams are now tied atop their division, meaning the game is for the lead in the division.
Last week the 49ers were handled by the Giants in San Francisco by the final of 26-3. The two weeks previous, it was the 9ers who were blowing out teams as they combined to defeat their two previous opponents 79-3. This past week, however, they found themselves on the other side of things. They were unable to do anything on either side of the ball and were disappointed again by the Giants for the second straight year.
The Seahawks fought extremely hard at home to beat the Patriots thanks, in large part, to the 12th man in Seattle. The Seahawks provide a still difficult stadium for away teams to win in and simply can not be beat at home. Seattle was able to get a touchdown in the final minute of the game and their defense stiffened to hold on to the win. The whole time the crowd provided the energy Seattle needed while frustrating a good Patriot team.
