The Seahawks finished the season with a 9-8 record and in second place in the NFC West. They secured a playoff berth with a win over the Los Angeles Rams in overtime and the Detroit Lions knocking out the Green Bay Packers in Week 18. Quarterback Geno Smith has experienced a career resurgence, and a deep playoff run would help him earn a longer contract as the team’s starter.
When these teams met twice in the regular season, the 49ers came away with a win both times. In Week 2, they won 27-7 and then in the rematch for Week 15, they took the 21-13 victory. San Francisco ended the regular season with 10 straight wins. They did so with a quarterback change to Brock Purdy due to injuries and after acquiring RB Christian McCaffrey at the trade deadline. The 49ers finished with a 13-4 record and won the division for the first time since 2019.
