NFL: NFC Wild Card Round-Seattle Seahawks at San Francisco 49ers Cary Edmondson-USA TODAY Sports

The superficial differences are pronounced: our Seattle Seahawks have a 32 year-old QB on the rise, the 49ers have question marks at the position; the 49ers defense is again poised to be the most intimidating and productive in the NFL, the Seahawks may be more elite in the defensive backfield while their front 7 may explode and reach an unseen potential. Matching up against the San Francisco 49ers is an exciting and significant challenge. In my humble opinion, going 1-1 against them this upcoming season would be a big accomplishment. Where do you see the ‘Hawks finishing in the division? How well do you see the ‘Hawks competing against the 49ers? Let us know in the comments below! Thank you.
