MATCHUP TO WATCH

Seahawks free safety

Earl Thomas vs. 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick

Thomas is perhaps the best safety in the game, and the Seahawks give him plenty of responsibility. He is the lone deep safety in many of their formations, which allows the team’s strong safety, Kam Chancellor, to scoot closer to the line of scrimmage to assist in the run game. Thomas was a menace in Week 2 when the 49ers had only one legitimate threat, Anquan Boldin, at wide receiver. Now they have two. Kaepernick’s objective will be to win the chess match with Thomas by hitting Boldin, wide receiver Michael Crabtree and tight end Vernon Davis at the right times. That will force the Seahawks to move both safeties back into coverage. And when that happens, Frank Gore will have more room to run.
