Seattle Seahawks at San Francisco 49ers in Week 7 on Thursday Night Football
The San Francisco 49ers got their second win of the season on Sunday, beating the Baltimore Ravens 25-20. Quarterback Colin Kaepernick is looking better again and finished with 340 yards passing and two touchdowns without an interception. The Seattle Seahawks entered Week 6 sitting at 2-3. They jumped out to a 20-7 lead on the Carolina Panthers, and seemed ready to cruise to victory. The Panthers came back and put together a huge latter third quarter and fourth quarter and defeated the Seahawks 27-23, dropping Seattle to 2-4. The game between the Seattle Seahawks and San Francisco 49ers is scheduled for Thursday, October 22, 2015, at 8:25 p.m. ET at Levi’s Stadium. The game will be broadcasted on CBS and the NFL Network.
The Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson hasn’t been quite his great self this year, and he continued to be average in Week 6. He had 241 yards and a touchdown, and had eight rushes for 53 yards. The run game has been inconsistent with Marshawn Lynch hobbled. The offensive line is spotty and clearly misses Max Unger, who was traded to New Orleans in the Jimmy Graham deal. Graham did have his best game as a Seahawk on Sunday with eight catches for 140 yards. The Seahawks have their second straight loss heading into Thursday’s road game against the improving 49ers and are facing a climb beyond just correcting their continued problems in closing out games.
The San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick played well in Week 6. He threw for 340 yards and two touchdowns, adding 10 more yards on the ground. It was Kaepernick’s best performance of the year, except for his Week 2 effort in Pittsburgh. The rush yards weren’t quite there, but the increased passing game production made up for it. Running back Carlos Hyde’s left foot injury which flared up on his first carry after halftime Sunday, is not expected to sideline him for the 49ers’ next game Thursday night against the Seattle Seahawks. Hyde missed two snaps after aggravating his injury against the Baltimore Ravens. He gained only 9 yards on eight carries and finished with 21 carries for 55 yards in Sunday’s 25-20 win.
