Sunday links: Predictions, and more

Before getting to the links, here’s my pick for Sunday’s game as published in the paper:

Seahawks 21, 49ers 16: Seattle enters a game as a Vegas underdog for the first, and probably only, time during the regular season. And this is a tough venue and a tough turnaround from Monday night. But Seattle seems to know how to defend the 49ers, and Russell Wilson will make enough plays to win it.

And hey, I’m 11-1 on my picks this season, same as the Seahawks. The Seahawks are hot, and for now I’m riding the hot hand.
