Geno Smith: Seahawks' Losing Streak to 49ers Unacceptable Entering Thanksgiving
Geno Smith and the Seattle Seahawks are looking to break a losing streak against the San Francisco 49ers on Thanksgiving.
Geno Smith and the Seattle Seahawks are feeling the sting of last season's losses to the San Francisco 49ers as they prepare for their Thanksgiving matchup. The Seahawks were eliminated by the 49ers in the first round of the playoffs and were also swept in their two regular season matchups. Seattle was outscored 89-43 over the three meetings, and the streak of defeats is still very much on their minds.
Smith expressed his frustration, calling the three losses unacceptable. The Seahawks are facing the 49ers on a short week, with Smith and running back Kenneth Walker III nursing injuries from their loss to the Los Angeles Rams. Coach Pete Carroll is optimistic that Smith will be able to play despite a triceps contusion, while Walker is listed as doubtful with a strained oblique.
The 49ers are coming off a strong win against the Jacksonville Jaguars after a three-game losing streak. Carroll believes that his team is better equipped to face the 49ers this year, with an improved defensive unit and a stronger overall matchup. The 49ers are favored by 7.5 points, making it the most an away team has been favored at Lumen Field since the Rams in 2018.
The Seahawks are determined to avenge last season's losses and are confident in their ability to compete with the 49ers. Despite the challenges they face, they are focused on delivering a strong performance on Thanksgiving.
