The San Francisco 49ers are the better team obviously, they smoked the Seahawks earlier this season, and they should be favored. The Seattle Seahawks are in a bit of a funk right now and if it weren’t for a late touchdown against the Rams, they’d be riding a 4-game losing streak. With all that said, this is a short week and Thursday night where weird things happen all the time. This will be Brock Purdy’s first road start, and Seattle is still a tough place to play. I’ll take my chances with the points.
