49ers won't take Seahawks lightly

Kirby Lee-US PRESSWIRE

Coming off a big win, the 49ers aren't overlooking their game with the Seattle Seahawks.

The San Francisco 49ers already beat the Seattle Seahawks this season, but that doesn't mean San Francisco is taking its rematch with Seattle lightly.

The NFC West as well as playoff positioning will be on the line Sunday and despite San Francisco's win earlier this season, Seattle should provide a difficult test. The Seahawks are coming off of back-to-back dominating performances where they outscored their opponents by a combined score of 108-17.

San Francisco running back Frank Gore said the 49ers know the Seahawks are playing well, but will be ready for the challenge. Running back Anthony Dixon said San Francisco won't underestimate Seattle and he expects Sunday's game to be a physical battle between two good teams.

"It's going to be a clash of the titans. It's going to be good. It's going to be fun, it's going to be physical. But that's the way we like it. We're ready," Dixon said, according to CSN Bay Area.

The 49ers Week 7 victory against Seattle came at home, but now San Francisco must go on the road. The Seahawks have one of the best home-field advantages in the NFL and are a perfect 6-0 at home this season. Still, the 49ers have a perfect streak of their own on the line as the 49ers are 5-0 in games played in primetime. Seattle and San Francisco will kickoff at 5:20 p.m. PT as part of NBC's Sunday Night Football.
