Seahawks Vs. 49ers Position-By-Position Preview:

Offensive Line

The Seattle line continues to improve on the atrocious play we saw earlier in the season. Russell Wilson has had time to throw and the penalties are slowly becoming less and less of a factor. San Francisco is still near the bottom of the league in allowing sacks. The 43 they have given up is the third most in the NFL. They also are 20th in rushing yards per attempt, while the Seahawks are first by a long shot. This has always been the one position the 49ers have been significantly better at, but right now, Seattle’s line is playing better.

Advantage: Seahawks
