FanIQ | Sports Rumors, Gossip, Blogs, News & Discussion ForumsOn Sunday the San Francisco 49ers beat the Saint Louis Rams 23-13. Their next challenge might be the toughest one yet as they face the Seattle Seahawks who are currently 10-1. The Seahawks are for now leading the NFC West.
 
The Seahawks will face the New Orleans Saints at The CenturyLink field on Monday night. The Seahawks are 10-1 and the Saints are 9-2. There is much expectation from the match. For now, the 49ers are in second place as title contenders.
 
49ers safety Donte Whitner said they would be ready for the challenge and wouldn’t repeat the embarrassing 29-3 loss to the Seahawks on September 15.
 
"We feel we'll be ready for the test," he said.
 
Coach Jim Harbaugh said the 49ers, with a two-game win streak in tow, are well aware of the stakes and pressure they face next week, and each game thereafter.
 
49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh said that he knew they were on the line and fully aware of the gravity of the situation. Each game is extremely important now and they won’t be facing ordinary teams now. Each team knows they have to win it and are desperate for it, preparing to the fullest. The 49ers have won two back to back games and are looking to make it a three game winning streak.
 
“We control our own destiny and here we go,” Harbaugh said.
 
In their past match, Rams wide receiver Brian Quick managed to get a touchdown catch in the final minutes of the game. Whitner said that the starters for defence were doing fine and they hadn’t allowed any touchdowns in the past 10 quarters they had played.
 
“We wanted to stay in and not give up a touchdown, but we understand it's a bigger picture,” Whitner said. “We've got Seattle coming in, there's playoff ramifications and we didn't want to lose a guy in garbage time.”
