Week 1 stats: 27-of-39, 412 passing yards, three touchdowns; seven carries, 22 yards
Colin Kaepernick's first career start at CenturyLink Field was one to forget.
Clearly struggling with communication due to deafening crowd noise from Seattle fans, Kaepernick completed just 52.8 percent of his passes, the lowest mark of his career, and didn't guide the 49ers into the end zone for the first 58 minutes of the game.
With a playoff run and stellar Week 1 performance since that loss, Kaepernick will look to show Seattle that he's a better player now than he was in Week 16 of last season.
Though I don't think there's any doubt he is, Seattle has the best home-field advantage in football. And the Seahawks defense allowed the fewest points in the league last year, giving up just 15.3 per game.
Kaepernick should be able to lead the Niners into the end zone twice, but don't expect a repeat performance of Week 1.
Prediction: 19-of-30, 230 passing yards, one touchdown; five carries, 28 yards, one touchdown; sacked twice
