Week 15 of the 2022 NFL season is upon us, starting with a Thursday Night Football showdown between two NFC West rivals. The division leading San Francisco 49ers, led by 2022 Mr. Irrelevant Brock Purdy at quarterback, visit the second-place Seattle Seahawks, riding a surprising resurgence to quarterback Geno Smith’s career. The game should be a good contest on Thursday night, not something we can always say about the mid-week game.
Can the 7-6 Seahawks pull off the upset and close in on the 9-4 49ers? Will San Francisco repeat their 27-7 victory over Seattle in Week 2?
