SANTA CLARA -- The rival Seattle Seahawks do not make an official appearance at the 49ers' new home until Thanksgiving night, but the reigning Super Bowl champs were represented at the football debut of Levi's Stadium on Sunday.

Seahawks general manager John Schneider was on hand to scout the 49ers-Broncos exhibition game. Ten NFL teams had scouts on hand for the game, but Schneider was the only general manager to have a seat in the press box.

Schneider grabbed lunch a couple hours before kickoff and went to the corner of the press box to watch some film, he said.

The St. Louis Rams were the only team from the NFC West that did not have a representative at the game.

The non-NFC West teams that had scouts at the game were the Raiders, Kansas City, San Diego, Dallas, Houston, Pittsburgh, Baltimore and Washington.

In addition, Canadian Football League teams Calgary and Toronto scouted the game.
