The San Francisco 49ers will be looking for revenge this weekend when they take on the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday, following their humbling earlier on this season.
Having cruised to victory over the Green Bay Packers in their opening game of this campaign, the 49ers had cause for optimism heading into their away clash with the Seahawks. After a 29-3 loss however they were sent crashing back down to earth, and apparently the wounds are still as fresh as ever.
49ers' Donte Whitner has revealed that his side are still reeling from the humbling they received in September, and that the team was ready to prove that they are ready to make amends.
"They embarrassed us last time we were there,” Whitner affirmed.
“The quarterback (Russell Wilson) likes to run around and make plays with his feet. They have one of the best running backs in the National Football League (Marshawn Lynch). But we feel like we’ll be ready for the test, and it’s going to be a really, really big game and we’re looking forward to it.”
The 49ers come into the pivotal game having endured a mixed season so far. Their current record stands at 8-4, but they have managed to claim victories over both the Washington Redskins and the St. Louis Rams in their last two outings.
The Seahawks on the other hand are looking formidable this term and have only suffered one defeat- a 34-28 loss to the Indianapolis Colts.
