Seattle Seahawks: Meeting Challenges Head on
The Seattle Seahawks (6-4 record, 5-5) have experienced some difficulties lately after an impressive 5-2 start to their season. Most notably in Week 11 against Los Angeles Rams when they had a 13-0 lead but ultimately fell 17-16 without covering a 2.5-point spread on the road – leaving their 5-game ATS record unchanged at 5-5 overall. Now looking to reestablish themselves as NFC West powerhouses again
Geno Smith returned from an elbow injury suffered against the Rams to play, showing his determination and resilience.

Key Player Performances Jimmy Garoppolo has been the undisputed architect of the San Francisco 49ers offense this season, showing his proficiency with passing. A combination of an efficient running game led by a committee of running backs and effective passing to playmakers such as Deebo Samuel has also propelled their offensive success. On defense, the 49ers will look to disrupt Seattle’s offensive rhythm while capitalizing on turnovers to maintain their 5-5 against-the-spread record.
Seattle Seahawks quarterback Geno Smith’s resilience has become the focal point of camp. Smith must overcome an injury and continue leading the offense against the San Francisco 49ers; receiving players Tyler Lockett and D.K. Metcalf are an essential addition. Meanwhile, Seattle’s defense seeks to create turnovers to stymie San Francisco’s multidimensional offensive approach.
