NFL Thursday preview: Seahawks at 49ers

Tonight: Seahawks at 49ers, 8:25, Ch. 10, NFL

Line/OU: Seahawks by 6½; 42

What is usually a battle between playoff contenders this year pits teams trying to climb out of the NFC West cellar. … Seattle has lost two in a row by a combined seven points and has blown fourth-quarter leads in all four of its losses. … San Francisco has been atrocious against the pass, allowing QBs to complete 69.6 percent and average 8.34 yards per attempt, both 30th in the NFL. … Both teams have had trouble keeping their QBs upright. Seattle's Russell Wilson has been sacked on an NFL-high 11.2 percent of his dropbacks, and the 49ers' Colin Kaepernick is on pace to be sacked 51 times. … The Seahawks will get back Pro Bowl linebacker Bobby Wagner, who missed Sunday's game with a strained pectoral.

TOM JONES' PICK: Seahawks 24, 49ers 16 READERS: Seahawks 90 percent
