Welcome to the 2023 NFL Playoffs!

The Seattle Seahawks (9-8) made it to the postseason on the final day of the regular season with an overtime win over the Los Angeles Rams, followed by a Detroit Lions victory over the Green Bay Packers. Next up is a trilogy with the San Francisco 49ers (13-4), winners of the NFC West and winners on both occasions over the Seahawks in the regular season. Neither game was ever a problem for the 49ers, who held leads in every quarter and never relinquished them.

This will be third-string quarterback and rookie sensation Brock Purdy’s playoff debut (obviously), as he looks to become the first rookie QB to win a playoff game since Russell Wilson in the 2012 season vs. Washington. With extremely rainy and windy conditions expected in Santa Clara, don’t be surprised if we see Kyle Shanahan defer to his running game, led by Christian McCaffrey and Elijah Mitchell... maybe sprinkle in some Deebo Samuel, too.

The 49ers have their full complement of offensive skill position stars that Seattle will need to do everything imaginable to slow down. Seattle’s offense has struggled to score against what is the top defense by DVOA and in points allowed, but the rushing attack has improved in recent weeks at a time when Geno Smith’s numbers have tapered off a bit. The offensive line is tasked with stopping San Francisco’s vaunted defensive front, and making sure Geno’s first playoff start isn’t one where he’s under pressure all day.

If the Seahawks win, they face the Philadelphia Eagles next weekend. If the 49ers win, they will get another home playoff game in the Divisional Round.
