What the 49ers have to do that other teams haven’t is to make plays on the ball. How many times have we seen Tyler Lockett come down with a 50/50 ball? The secondary must contest catches and hold Seattle to a couple of field-goal attempts in the red zone.
Two weeks ago, San Francisco 49ers fans confidence were down in the dumps at 43%. After two wins in a row, our polls have risen to 81%. Compare that figure to Seahawks fans whose confidence dropped from 93% to 63% after a primetime loss to the Cardinals last week.
Remarkably, the unheralded Greenlaw was able to turn the red zone into a dread zone for Wilson and the Seahawks. Most famously, the 49ers literally leaned on Greenlaw’s shoulder last year while holding on for a 26-21 Week 16 win in Seattle that enabled San Francisco to capture the NFC West and clinch the conference’s No. seed.
