Patrick Willis: 'San Francisco 49ers are better than record suggests'

Patrick Willis thinks that the San Francisco 49ers are a better team than their record suggests as they look ahead to facing divisional rival the Seattle Seahawks this weekend.

San Francisco 49ers linebacker Patrick Willis has stated that the team can still make the playoffs and challenge for a place at the Super Bowl.

Willis helped the side ease to victory over the St Louis Rams on Sunday to record their second win on the bounce and improve their record in the NFC West.

The 49ers host the Seattle Seahawks this weekend knowing that a win will go a long way to securing a post-season spot.

Willis told "I think we're better than our 8-4 record suggests. We've been through some adversity but we've done well as a team in my opinion.

"Every year teams are labelled favourites but history shows a bottom seeded wildcard team are hungrier and go on and win it. We've taken on a bit of an underdog mentality and we've got to play like we have something to prove.

"We're a good football team. We're ready to go and I'm looking forward to playing the Seattle Seahawks this weekend."

When the 49ers and the Seahawks met back in week two, Seattle dominated their rivals to end up resounding winners.
