2. Wilson held below 200 yards, Carson doesn’t top 50 yards

Russell Wilson has been regarded as one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL for quite some time now. And yet, the Seattle Seahawks quarterback has been playing the best football of his career in the 2019 season. He’s one of the leaders in the midseason NFL MVP race and deservedly so considering his production and the success he’s led his team to.

In nine games, Wilson has completed 68.3 percent of his passes for 2,505 yards, 22 touchdowns and only one interception, adding 203 rushing yards and three rushing scores as well. To make the Seahawks more dangerous, Chris Carson has been running well this season, taking 175 carries for 764 yards, though he does only have three touchdowns. Even still, this has been an impressive offense.

Maybe the most impressive part of the Seattle offense has been doing this behind a still-bad offensive line. But that’s what’s going to plague them on Monday night in San Francisco. The 49ers defensive front has been playing at an elite level all season and, though Wilson handles pressure well, he’s not seen the amount of harassment that he will in Week 10.

In addition to Bosa getting to Wilson on a couple of occasions, the 49ers defense as a whole will keep the Seahawks offense almost entirely in check. The MVP candidate will be held below 200 yards passing (only the third time this season and first time against a good team) and Carson will fail to get going at all.
