San Francisco 49ers - will 49ers turn things around at home?
Last week gainst Chicago Bears, the 49ers lost 19-10 away from home. When Lance took over as the starting quarterback for the first time, everyone knew some growing pains would be involved. Fans and the team were surprised by the offense's inability to close out drives, especially against a weaker opponent like the Chicago Bears. This offense, with the players it has, needs to score more than 10 points, even if the weather did not help. It could help to give Lance some short passes to Deebo Samuel in the open field to get the offense going. If George Kittle is well enough to play, attacking the seams in the Seahawks' defense will be a great way to help Lance get the offense going. The offensive line can't afford a bad game and let the Seahawks' pass rush get to Lance.
Seattle Seahawks - hoping to get another win
The visitors will come into this game following a win against the Denvers. Seattle's defense took Wilson's best shot as he threw for 342 yards, but they didn't give up. They let Denver get about 7.5 yards per try in the first half. In the second half, they did a good job stopping Denver from running the ball by holding them to less than four yards per attempt. Fixing missed tackles, making good use of their speed, and not overrunning plays need to be done moving forward. This week, the key to winning is to keep forcing turnovers, keep Lance in the pocket by making him pass, and use the 49ers' offensive injuries to your advantage. If they can do that, head coach Kyle Shanahan will have to stop being so cautious and take more risks than he wants to this week. This week, when they travel to Levi's stadium, which is usually a hostile place, the Seahawks don't have much room for error.
Expert Betting Tips
With only three days to prepare, the Seahawks will have a tough time Sunday against a San Francisco 49ers team that should bring more focus and intensity to the field. Each of the last seven meetings between these two clubs has been decided by a single goal. The Seahawks offense will accomplish enough to get them over the Cardinals and to a 2-0 start. Additionally, the Seahawks have a 17-4 record in their last 21 meetings with the 49ers. When they lost 33-17 on September 11, 2011, it was the last time they were humiliated in San Francisco. Therefore, it will likely be a close game for both teams, no matter who starts at quarterback. However, San Francisco may struggle to win this week without Kittle on the field, especially with Lance still developing as a quarterback.
