When the offseason rolled around, there was a major anticipation for the 49ers and Seahawks to meet again. Their first of two meetings (and possibly three) is tonight in Seattle on prime time.
The rivalry has grabbed the attention of everyone in the NFL world. It has become the premiere rivalry. No longer is the hard-nosed defensive battle between the Ravens and Steelers the talk of football. We have the showdown out West that’s worth our attention.
What first attracted people to this rivalry was that these two teams now are considered to be in the elite of the NFL, both having made the playoffs last season. Adding to the fact that both of these teams are division rivals, it just adds more to every matchup these two encounter.
