Few people thought the 49ers were going to go into Seattle and beat the Seahawks, but the 49ers gave the home team a scare. If not for injuries and a bad call, San Francisco might have been able to keep their postseason hopes alive.
For the second time this season, the Seahawks and 49ers will meet. Both teams need a win for their playoff hopes, but it’s the 49ers who are on the verge of being eliminated.

Do the Oakland Raiders have nine bodies to spare on Halloween weekend for their game in Seattle against the defending champions? Of course not.

The 0-7 Oakland Raiders travel to Seattle this weekend to take on the defending Super Bowl champions. And while the 4-3 Seahawks have already lost as many games as they did all of last year, they still are an opponent never to be taken lightly on their home field. Of course, the winless Silver & Black can’t take any team lightly these days as they look to snap a 13-game losing streak dating back to last season.
