Week 15 of the NFL season kicks off with Geno Smith and the Seattle Seahawks playing host to the Brock Purdy-led San Francisco 49ers on Thursday Night Football.
Purdy, who was the final pick in this year’s draft, has been thrust into a starting role after injuries to starter Trey Lance and backup QB Jimmy Garoppolo. Meanwhile, Smith has been one of the biggest surprises in the NFL this season, leading the league with a 71.5 completion percentage.
Here are the top plays!
San Francisco 49ers at Seattle Seahawks
Look good, feel good, play good
The 49ers will be wearing all white uniforms, while the Seahawks are sporting their neon green look.
San Francisco’s offensive line opened up a huge hole for Christian McCaffrey, who ran up the middle for a 23-yard gain.
Kittle up the middle
Third-string quarterback … no problem. Purdy faked one throw, faked another, and then found George Kittle over the middle for a picture-perfect 28-yard touchdown to give the 49ers an early 7-0 lead.
The Seahawks added a field goal and were looking to put together a drive before halftime. Smith connected with Travis Homer on a short pass, but San Francisco’s Dre Greenlaw and Jimmie Ward combined on a huge hit, which forced the ball loose.
Taking advantage of the turnover
The 49ers capitalized on the turnover as McCaffrey scored on a 2-yard run, giving San Francisco a 14-3 lead before the half.
