C.J. Beathard will make his second consecutive start at quarterback. The 2017 third-round pick was helped by the return of superstar tight end George Kittle last week. Beathard went 13-of-22 for 183 yards and three touchdowns against Arizona.
Unfortunately, the 49ers’ offense will be without two of its top players for today’s game. Offensive lineman Trent Williams is OUT with an elbow injury, while rookie receiver Brandon Aiyuk suffered the dreaded high-ankle sprain. He finishes his rookie campaign with 60 receptions for 748 yards and five touchdowns.
Despite locking up the top spot in the NFC West with a win against the Los Angeles Rams last week, the Seahawks still have plenty to play for. Seattle could get home-field advantage throughout the playoffs with a win and losses by the New Orleans Saints and Green Bay Packers.
