This game is all about the pass rush. The Seattle Seahawks need to pressure Jimmy Garoppolo. Get to him often enough, and it puts the game-making wide receiver Deebo Samuel out of the equation. If Jimmy G. gets time, the Seattle cornerbacks just aren’t good enough to hold back the Niners receivers.
Conversely, San Francisco has a dynamic line of defense. The Seahawks O-line comes into play beat up, which is a bad combination for Russell Wilson. He must clear the ball quickly and release his receivers after the catch.
