San Francisco 49ers' running-back Frank Gore believes his team are 'built' for the test of Seattle on Sunday, as the two teams look to face off in what is certain to be a physical NFC Championship battle. 

Both sides made the NFC Championship Game on the back of strong defense, and powerful running game that delivered yards and bruises aplenty. 

Gore rushed the ball 17 times for 84 crucial yards, every one of them which sapped the energy from the Panthers.

Ground and pounding their way to the Super Bowl will not be easy against a Seahawks defense that can inflict pain.

"We have to go to Seattle," he told CSN Bay Area. "We know it's going to be a dog fight. But we are built for this."

The hard running back praised the influence of Niner coach Jim Harbaugh, who led his side to the NFC Championship Game for the third season in a row since becoming their coach. 

“We’re doing great things with Coach Harbaugh. We’re healthy. We’re willing to do whatever it takes to win and we’re playing great ball.”

Meanwhile, 49ers' premier wide-receiver Michael Crabtree claims he is not playing hurt despite looking a shadow of himself in Charlotte. 

“I’m not hurt,” said Crabtree. “I’m just playing ball.”
