Matt Hasselbeck was injured and unavailable when the Seahawks suffered a 20-14 defeat at San Francisco last month. His replacement, Seneca Wallace, tossed two early interceptions that led to 10 points for the 49ers. The rematch comes Thursday night at Qwest Field. Hasselbeck will get the start four days after posting a 133.5 passer rating at Arizona.

The New England Patriots' next opponent, the Tamp Bay Buccaneers, are significantly more dangerous than their last two, the New York Jets and the Buffalo Bills. Winning -- even at home -- will be no easy task. New England may actually catch a break this week as Tampa is expected to be without one of their best defensive linemen, Anthony McFarland. For a banged-up Patriots offensive line, that's the good news. The bad news is Tampa Bay 's offense looks like they're getting better each week.
