No. 3: Nick Bosa vs. Jamarco Jones/George Fant
With starting left tackle Duane Brown (knee) out for the season, the Seahawks have a glaring weakness at the position.
Cardinals EDGE Chandler Jones had a field day against backup Jamarco Jones recording four sacks, two tackles for loss and six quarterback hits. He was more of a fixture in the backfield than the Seahawks running backs by the end of the game.
49ers EDGE Nick Bosa can now look to pick up where Jones left off here.
There seems to be some uncertainly if the Seahawks stick with Jones or veteran backup George Fant, with Jones seemingly the favorite to start for now, but both are a favorable matchup for the 49ers young defensive star.
Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson is one of the greatest ever to avoid pressure, but even he can’t see out the back of his head. If Bosa terrorizes the blindside, Wilson will similarly struggle to get the offense moving.
Control the blindside, and you can control Wilson.
