SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) — The Seattle Seahawks find themselves in an unusual spot early this season after back-to-back losses to Tennessee and Minnesota.
The Seahawks head into a division showdown at San Francisco looking up at all three of their rivals in the NFC West. Seattle hasn’t lost three straight games in a season or began the year 1-3 since coach Pete Carroll’s second season in 2011.
That’s the year before quarterback Russell Wilson arrived and launched a nine-year run of at least nine wins each season that’s tied for the longest streak ever of that kind.
The 49ers are also coming off a loss after opening the season with back-to-back road wins.
