Tomorrow is the big showdown between the 9-5 Seahawks and the 10-3-1 49ers at CenturyLink Field in Seattle. The whole city seems to be pumped up and looking forward to watching the showdown between these two playoff-bound teams. The NFL agrees that this game will be a classic showdown and flexed the game to Sunday Night Football.
Both the Seahawks and 49ers are red-hot and led by young QBs with amazing promise. Arguably, Russell Wilson and Colin Kaepernick are two of the best young QBs in the NFL. Based on their stellar play and leadership this year, the Seahawks and 49ers have found their franchise QBs for the next several years.
Kaepernick toasted the New England Patriots last week with four touchdown passes. Since he started in place of Alex Smith, Kaepernick’s Total QBR is 79.5, only trailing Peyton Manning. He has led the 49ers to a 4-1 record since he was named the starter in Week 11.
Not to be outdone, Wilson threw one touchdown and ran for another three TDs last week in a total domination of the Buffalo Bills. Wilson has 21 touchdown passes as a rookie tying him for second place with Cam Newton. He will surely pass Newton with two games remaining.
Who will win tomorrow? It’s a toss-up according to the betting odds. All I know is that it will be great physical game. But with a perfect record at home this year, I am hoping that the Seahawks will claim their playoff spot tomorrow.
