Winner Of Seahawks vs 49ers Is Clear, Says ESPN
The winner of Seahawks vs 49ers is clear, says ESPN.
Heading into Sunday Night Football on NBC, the stakes are high for both teams involved.
If San Francisco wins, the team secures a divisional championship and the No. 1 overall seed in the NFC.
Meanwhile, if Seattle emerges victorious then Pete Carroll’s group has a shot at the No. 1 overall NFC seed if the Green Bay Packers and New Orleans Saints lose their games.
The big story this week heading into the game has been the Seahawks’ decision to bring back Marshawn Lynch. Seattle has been absolutely devastated by injuries to all positions this year, but especially running back.
It remains to be seen how big of a boost the 33-year-old Lynch can really offer at this stage of his career.
ESPN recently ran this match-up through its computer model and determined that the winner was not all that tough to predict.
According to ESPN’s model, the 49ers have a 56.3 percent chance of coming out with a victory.
Will the worldwide leader in sports’ confidence in San Francisco ultimately be rewarded? We’ll find out once and for all tonight.
