NFL Week 17 SNF Game Preview
San Francisco enters Week 17 coming off a 3-point win against the Los Angeles Rams. Jimmy Garoppolo converted two third-and-16s, and Robbie Gould kicked a 33-yard field goal as time expired. The 49ers eliminated the Rams from postseason contention in Week 16 and look to win the NFC West in Week 17.
Seattle is recovering from a 27-13 loss at home to the Arizona Cardinals. The Seahawks’ offense struggled in Week 16, as they managed just 224 yards and allowed five sacks. The loss pushed the Seahawks back into second place in the NFC West, but they can retake first place with a win against the 49ers. After losing running backs Chris Carson and C.J. Prosise to injured reserved, the team signed Marshawn Lynch and Robert Turbin. Seattle will also have defensive end Jadeveon Clowney, cornerback Shaquill Griffin and linebacker Mychal Kendricks available on Sunday night.
