The Seahawks are in the playoffs and perhaps as the type of opponent no one would like to see in the postseason.

49ers DL Buckner finally turns pressure into sacks
SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) — Generating pressure on the quarterback has never been a major problem for DeForest Buckner since entering the NFL in 2016. Turning that pressure into sacks, however, was missing his first two seasons with the San Francisco 49ers.
