San Francisco 49ers tight end Vernon Davis believes that his side can postpone the Seattle Seahawks' NFC west title celebrations for at least a week, eyeing revenge against their divisional rivals this weekend.

Seattle will clinch top spot in the west if they can produce a repeat a 29-3 thrashing against the 49ers from week 2, as they gear up for a sustained playoff push in the postseason.

Davis has other ideas though, insisting that the 49ers are highly motivated to respond and upset their title rivals on home turf.

He told the San Jose Mercury news: "Any time you play a team and you lose, the next opportunity you get to play them again, it's definitely a statement game.

"It might be the most intense game this season, because those guys don't like us, and we don't like them."

The Seahawks are just a single positive result away from securing the number-one seeding in the NFC, but must negotiate a final hurdle against a fierce rival before celebrating prime position for the post seeding.

Davis expects to be fully fit for the clash despite taking a heavy tackle from St. Louis Rams safety T.J. McDonald last week, with just "a few abrasions left," from the heavy knock.
