Thursday Night Football Open Thread - 49ers vs. Seahawks

Can the 49ers hold off the Seahawks, or will they lose grasp of the NFC West lead? - Brian Bahr

I think 49ers fans should be a little concerned right now. I still like the makeup of their team. When they face opponents who are far less superior to them, they deliver in impressive fashion like they did against the Jets and the Bills. Against tougher competition, they have kind of wilted. Their two losses on the season came against the Vikings and the Giants, two teams I would consider to have stingy defenses.

I would put the Seahawks in a similar boat as those two teams. Their defense has been incredible, and the offense seems to have the knack for making big plays down bat. Seattle's victories against tough opponents, the Packers and the Patriots, both came at home. This is a close enough matchup to where I will use the 49ers' home-field advantage as the deciding factor.
