NFL preview capsule: Seahawks at 49ers

TONIGHT

Seahawks (4-2) at 49ers (4-2)

When/where: 8:20; Candlestick Park, San Francisco

TV/radio: NFL Network; 98.7-FM, 1010-AM

Line/OU: 49ers by 7; 37½

It shapes up to be an interesting ride down the stretch in the NFC West. After six games, these two clubs seem on course for a seasonlong fight. Tonight, it's hard to envision Seahawks QB Russell Wilson having the same success he did in a rally over the Patriots on Sunday (16-of-27 for 293 yards and two late TDs). The 49ers defense, though coming off a poor performance in a loss to the Giants, present a stiffer test. And the prideful 49ers take after their coach, Jim Harbaugh. A bounceback seems likely.

Stephen F. Holder's pick: 49ers 23, Seahawks 21

  5. Remember that famous Fred McGriff TV commercial? He's back, in a parody

    Blogs

    If you've ever seen Fred McGriff's TV commerical for Tom Emanski's Defensive Drills video it will always be fresh in your mind, with the deadpan delivery and famously ill-fitting cap.

    Fred McGriff in his new commercial for Chassis, a men's grooming line, that looks a lot like his old one.
