In Week 7, the San Francisco 49ers will travel East to take on the New England Patriots in Jimmy Garoppolo’s return to Foxboro.

49ers vs Patriots NFL Game Preview

These two teams have played against each other just 13 times and San Francisco holds the advantage with an 8-5 record. Their last meeting came in 2016 and the Patriots won 30 to 17. New England has also won four of the last five matchups.

  • The San Franciaco 49ers (3-3) scored their best win of the season as they soundly beat a solid Los Angeles Rams team. It was a strong performance from San Francisco on both sides of the ball. Now, the question turns to whether or not they can beat a tough team on the road.
  • The New England Patriots (2-3) have fallen below .500 as they have lost two in a row and three of their last four. New England’s offense has been stifled the last two games, but they’re not panicking just yet. Can the Patriots bounce back with a big win at home?

The 49ers came out in Week 6 and proved that they’re not as bad as everyone thought they were following a 43 to 17 loss to the Dolphins in Week 5.

San Francisco put together a solid performance by holding the Rams to just 16 points and under 200 passing yards. If it weren’t for a long TD pass with 3 minutes left in the game, the 49ers would’ve won 24 to 9.

The 49ers defense was strong, but so was their offense as Garoppolo looked great against a tough Rams defense. Garoppolo finished with 268 yards and 3 TDs as the 49ers never trailed in this game.

The Patriots had a pathetic performance against the Broncos as they were held to below 300 total yards and could only manage one TD. Furthermore, Cam Newton had his worst performance of the season with two INTs and just 157 yards through the air. He was also sacked 4 times.

Defensively, the Patriots held Denver to six field goals and also forced 2 INTs, but the New England offense couldn’t capitalize on them.

This matchup is going to come down to how well the 49ers can stop the run. Denver had a solid rush defense, but the 49ers are slightly below the Broncos as they allow 108.3 rushing ypg.

For the Patriots to really capitalize on any San Francisco inconsistencies, they will need to succeed in their passing game as well. That’s no easy feat as the 49ers stifled the Rams passing attack last week.

For the 49ers offense, they will be without running back Raheem Mostert who is expected to miss a few games due to an ankle injury. I don’t see San Francisco having as much success on the ground without Mostert.

Despite what the 49ers did against the Rams, I just don’t see the Patriots losing three straight games. I believe they will bounce back on Sunday and earn a hard fought victory via their smash mouth rushing attack with Newton, Harris and Burkhead.

The 49ers are 2-9 ATS in their last 11 games vs losing teams. The Patriots are 17-4 SU in their last 21 home games, 8-2 SU in their last 10 NFC games, and 7-2 ATS in their last nine NFC matchups.

The Jedi master Bill Belichick will beat his former padawan Jimmy Garoppolo and all will be right with the Patriots’ galaxy for a week.
