The San Francisco 49ers are back to winning ways after their bye week, now 7-3 entering a pivotal week in the NFC West.

Only days after beating the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the 49ers travel to Washington for a Thanksgiving night showdown with the Seattle Seahawks. This is the first of two meetings in three weeks, set to see each other again in Week 14. Thursday’s clash comes with the added bonus of bragging rights on Thanksgiving, with the Red & Gold looking to head back to California feeling grateful for a win.

The NFC West’s most storied rivalry in recent memory, 49ers-Seahawks promises to be a hard-fought contest for supremacy in the division.

San Francisco has been on the winning end in recent matchups, winning the last three over Seattle. The two teams last met in postseason, with the 49ers coasting past the Seahawks, 41-23. The ‘Hawks have been better all-time however, holding a record of 30-20 in the series.

The 49ers have been the hotter team in recent weeks, beating the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Jacksonville Jaguars in consecutive weeks. San Francisco defeated the former last Sunday, 27-14, with quarterback Brock Purdy throwing for 333 passing yards and three touchdowns.

Meanwhile, Seattle has been up and down since their Week 5 bye, going 3-3. They most recently lost to Los Angeles Rams on the road, 17-16. QB Geno Smith suffered an elbow injury in Week 11, but is expected to play Thursday. However, running back Kenneth Walker III (oblique) will likely be unavailable for the Seahawks.

Despite that, the 49ers are taking their divisional foes seriously, expecting a tough matchup in a hostile environment on the road.

“I don’t think so. Obviously, it’s a new year. The situation of this game’s a little different. The personnel is a little different. They have guys that we haven’t faced, so there’s all that in play. So, I think it’s different for sure,” Brock Purdy said Tuesday. “And so, that’s how I’m looking at it, and I think that’s really the reality of it. They’re a good team. We’re not going in thinking, ‘oh, we beat these guys however many times before.’ It isn’t like that. This is a new game, new team, and that’s how we’re looking at it.”

What time does the regular-season game start?

Kickoff is set for 5:20 p.m. PST on Sunday, Nov. 23rd, at Lumen Field in Seattle, Washington.
