Brock Purdy has looked promising, but the Niners new quarterback is in for a much bigger test against Seattle.
San Francisco lost Jimmy Garoppolo to injury two weeks ago but 7th round draft pick Brock Purdy has filled in admirably thus far,
Nonetheless, taking San Francisco minus three and a half points in a division game is a step too far at this point.
Yes, the Niners defence did a very effective job at containing the Seahawks when these teams met in Week 2, but the Hawks have been better offensively since, even if their running game has slowed down of late with the absence of Kenneth Walker.
However, Walker is slated to return this week and the Hawks should have a better time running the ball in front of their own fans than they did on the road earlier in the season.
Purdy has looked good to this point but equally, he has not been under any pressure. The Niners have also lost Deebo Samuel for the season, and his game breaking yards after catch ability will be impossible to replace, although the Niners still have an impressive array of offensive weapons.
Seattle have generally played San Francisco well. Although they lost in Week 2, they won their previous four matchups against their NFC West rivals. In the last decade, the record is 17-5 in favour of Pete Carroll’s team.
Getting more than a field goal at home, the Seahawks have to be the play.

Seattle concede 48.8 receiving yards per game to running backs, so with Deebo Samuel out, expect Christian McCaffrey to see plenty of targets in the passing game.
Purdy scored 19 rushing touchdowns as quarterback at Iowa State and while he doesn’t have the wheels of a Lamar Jackson or Josh Allen, he showed last week against Tampa that he is a capable scrambler when needed.
