Tonight's 49ers vs Seahawks live stream isn’t just the Turkey Day nightcap, it’s also a rematch of a wild Wildcard meeting in last year’s playoffs. Seattle lit up the scoreboard with 17 points in the second quarter of last year’s Wildcard round, only to watch the Niners counter with an 18-point fourth quarter to lock up a 41-23 win. Now these NFC West rivals meet for the first time since that fateful afternoon in this Thanksgiving Day NFL live stream.

San Francisco (7-3) has shaken off a three-game losing streak to win two straight, including last week’s 27-14 win over the Buccaneers. Quarterback Brock Purdy threw for 333 yards and three touchdowns on 21-of-25 passing in the win over the Bucs and wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk helped the cause by reeling in five passes for a career-high 156 yards and a touchdown.

Purdy has been impressive this season, picking up right from where he left off a season ago, leading the Niners to a 12-3 record dating back to Week 12 of last year while posting a 116.3 passer rating. This year, he’s thrown for 18 touchdowns with just 5 interceptions helping him put up a league-best 115.1 passer rating. 

The 49ers’ defense is also having another solid season. They enter Week 12 allowing the fewest points per game in the NFL (15.7) while also leading the NFC with 19 takeaways. Linebacker Fred Warner has a share of the team lead with three interceptions while edge rusher Nick Bosa leads the team with 5.5 sacks.  

Meanwhile, the Seahawks (6-4) are coming into this game following a tough 17-16 loss to the Rams. Seattle led 13-0 with just under five minutes remaining in the first half. Then L.A. engineered a 9-play, 75-yard touchdown drive. In the fourth quarter, the Seahawks lost quarterback Geno Smith due to a triceps injury for two possessions, enough time for backup Drew Lock to throw a crucial interception. Smith did come back to help Seattle get into field goal range, but kicker Jason Myers pushed the 55-yard potential game-winning field goal wide right.

Geno Smith was just one of the Seahawks’ starters to sustain an injury in the loss. Running back Kenneth Walker III also left the game in the first quarter with an oblique injury and did not return. Walker is "out" tonight while Smith is active for the Seahawks. 

DraftKings has the 49ers as 7-point favorites against the Seahawks. The over/under is 43.5 points.
