NFL Thanksgiving 2023: Seahawks vs. 49ers 1st Quarter game thread

It’s not quite a must-win, but it’s a big game for the Seahawks.

The Seattle Seahawks were in reasonably comfortable playoff position just a couple of weeks ago. It’s on shaky ground entering this Thanksgiving evening. The Green Bay Packers beating the Detroit Lions earlier today has put Seattle under more pressure to win against the San Francisco 49ers. A Seahawks win gives them the lead in the NFC West, if only on a tiebreaker basis. Losing would drop the Seahawks’ cushion against non-playoff teams to just a single game, with the Packers at 5-6 and other 4-6 teams lurking.

It’s a longshot that the Seahawks are even competitive against the 49ers based on recent history, but every so often a Pete Carroll team surprises us with a big showing against a more talented squad. Maybe tonight is one of those nights.
