Russell Wilson throws and Bobby Wagner tackles
Russell Wilson targets DK Metcalf 10 times and completes 5 of them
DK Metcalf is rightfully upset he isn’t getting the ball more. Russell Wilson doesn’t seem to be able to see the middle of the field but also can’t seem to see Metcalf either. Wilson will try to overcome his recent struggles by attempting to rectify Metcalf’s issue too. Wilson is going to throw Metcalf’s way a lot.
The issue is that Metcalf will be double-covered a lot. Wilson will try to force him the ball and most will end up in incompletions. Basically, what we saw in the second half in Week 12 against the Cardinals (4 targets to Metcalf and just one completion) will happen all game in Week 13.
Bobby Wagner has 20 tackles and 1 sack
The 49ers are great at running the ball because they have a head coach that knows how to scheme for the run. In the last three games, San Francisco hasn’t run for less than 156 yards. In Week 10, San Francisco ran for 156 yards against the Rams. In Week 11, they ran for 171 yards. And in Week 12, the 49ers ran for 208 yards.
Seattle is decent against the run but the 49ers are different. This is going to be a Bobby Wagner and Jordyn Brooks game and will have to clean up a lot after the 49ers break through the Seahawks defensive line on runs. Wagner is going to have a ton of tackles and so does Brooks. But Wagner will be blitzed twice and get home once for a sack.
