49ers Willis: ‘Who will be the team that’s physical to the very end?’

San Francisco 49ers linebacker Patrick Willis offered up his thoughts on what is once again expected to be a physical game between rivals San Francisco and Seattle.

“It’s going to be a test of wills,” Willis said. “Who will be the team that’s physical until the very end? With us, I have no question in my mind that we want to take that challenge and rise to the occasion.”

The Seahawks have won the last two games against the 49ers by a combined score of 71-16, but both of those games were in Seattle. San Francisco won last year’s game at home 13-6 and held Russell Wilson to a career-low 122 passing yards.

The 49ers, of course, won the division last year and advanced to the Super Bowl, while the Seahawks sit atop the NFC this season.

“They’re the new team that’s supposed to be,” Willis said, “and we feel like we’re still the team that is.”
