No, you did not predict this in week 1. Facing off in a highly anticipated NFC West rivalry game, both the San Francisco 49ers and the Seattle Seahawks have a lot on the line Sunday night. A win for the 49ers and they will go on to clinch their second consecutive division title. A win for the Seahawks clinches their spot in the playoff and also leaves the NFC West title up for grabs. With both teams had impressive wins the week before, this game will arguably be the most intriguing matchup on the Week 16 schedule. That also makes it a craps-shoot for those still in their fantasy football league playoffs.
Despite Niners HC Jim Harbaugh claiming that he will not decide on a starting QB until Sunday it has become quite clear that Alex Smith will be riding the pine in favor of the youngster. The matchup is a fantastic one even for a somewhat unproven QB on a run heavy team.
