The Seattle Seahawks play the San Francisco 49ers on Thursday Night Football tonight. Good fun. Two years ago, this would have been one of t he best games of the year. An absolute cracker between two top-notch teams who keep fighting not only for the division lead, but even the conference championship.
Oh how times have changed. Now the Seahawks and 49ers are both 2-4, with their quarterbacks struggling and their defenses no longer what they were. The Seahawks have still led in every game until the fourth quarter, when they consistently lose their lead -- in part because of some very uncharacteristic broken coverages. Meanwhile, the 49ers have simply lost too much talent this offseason to keep up their dominant play from seasons past.
Still, these NFC West clashes are always fascinating. Here's what you need to know to watch the game.
