I'm kind of amused at perusing some of the threads that a lot of fans are expecting an easy victory. I don't see it that way at all.
Don't look at the Lions record (2-4) and let that influence you. This is still a team with a very talented QB (Stafford) who threw for 5000+ yds and 41 TDs last season -- which would take a Seahawks QB about three seasons to accumulate. He has the best WR in the game (Megatron). I'm confident in our defense and their ability to limit him, but he hasn't had one of his trademark breakout games (neither has Stafford) and it could come at any week.
They have a strong defensive line that could create a lot of problems for us, especially in the area of penalties...our Achilles Heel. The Lions are backed into a corner and have to win this game to keep their season alive -- desperation activates the fight reflex. They are playing at home and the city will be fired up with the World Series also going on next door.
We can't keep expecting to win scoring less than 16 points on the road (we've scored 16, 13, 16 and 6). We can't go 2+ quarters without a pass completion. We can't keep wasting 100 yard efforts from Marshawn Lynch.
Doug Baldwin is out, which does not bode well for our offensive woes.
Oh by the way, it's a 10 am PST start East Coast game. I don't need to remind everyone of our track record in these games.
I think we find a way to win, but I expect another very close nail biter. It would be a great time, as I pointed out in another thread, to get the turnovers flowing and to score on defense or special teams.
