In an early battle between division rivals, Seattle hosts San Francisco for bragging rights to the NFC West crown. Many preseason predictions had the road to the Super Bowl going through one of these two teams.
The Seahawks' defense was everything it was advertised to be in a 12-7 season-opening win over the Carolina Panthers. As the 12 points suggests, though, the offense had its share of struggles. Russell Wilson connected with Jermaine Kearse for his first career touchdown reception at the beginning of the fourth quarter to take the lead, and the defense would hold their line the rest of the way.
The 49ers got into a semi-expected shootout against the Green Bay Packers in Week 1, and Colin Kaepernick threw three touchdowns in the team's 34-28 win. Anquan Boldin caught 13 receptions for 208 yards and a touchdown, and Vernon Davis added 98 receiving yards and two touchdowns to the mix.
