Wouldn’t beating the NFC West rival Seahawks at CenturyLink Field be a nice time for Kyle Shanahan’s first win as the 49ers head coach? The odds say it won’t happen — the point spread is a whopping 14 points in favor of Seattle — as San Francisco hasn’t won in Seattle since 2011. But it’s not as if the Seahawks are as intimidating as they used to be, even if they still have Russell Wilson behind center.
The Wilson-led Seahawks looked rather pedestrian in a 17-9 loss to Green Bay last Sunday. Still, the 49ers will need a whole lot to go their way to make things interesting Sunday. Quarterback Brian Hoyer, who led the offense to just 217 total yards and one field goal in a 23-3 season-opening loss at Carolina last week.
San Francisco’s defense will be challenged without standout rookie linebacker Reuben Foster, whose ankle sprain will sideline him at least a couple of weeks. Foster showed all the makings of an impact player in his brief action last week.
