The San Francisco 49ers (1-1) host the Seattle Seahawks (2-0) for the first time since the 49ers lost to the 49er-owned Houston Texans in the 2015 Super Bowl.
Here are some key takeaways: What to watch: How good is Russell Wilson?
Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson’s two touchdown passes to tight end Jimmy Graham in the first half of the 49-20 win were the first of his career.
The Seahawks won the NFC West and are coming off a 17-10 win over the New York Giants in the divisional round.
What they need: Quarterback Russell Wilson threw for 327 yards and two touchdowns in the 49s win, including a 4-yard touchdown pass to Graham.
That’s one of the few times in his career that he’s thrown a pass with less than two minutes left in regulation, and it’s a great sign that Wilson’s confidence has returned.
Wilson also threw for a career-high 204 yards on 15 attempts with no interceptions.
Where to watch it: Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, Calif.
