Week Seven of the NFL on Sky Sports features a face off between the unbeaten Steelers and Titans, Jimmy G's return to New England and an X-factor quarterback clash in Arizona The San Francisco 49ers head to New England on Sunday in a matchup that would have been marked on many people's calendars preseason. Two of the greatest franchises in NFL history - one with a record-equalling six Super Bowl titles to their name, the other with five and having reached a seventh back in February.
Patriots changes The following players from the teams’ last meeting on November 20, 2016, are still with the team: C David Andrews, LS Joe Cardona, WR Julian Edelman, CB Jonathan Jones, G Shaq Mason, S Devin McCourty, WR Matthew Slater, G Joe Thuney, RB James White Offense: The biggest change compared to the last game against San Francisco is obviously the departure of starting quarterback Tom Brady.
It’s gameday. All eyes will be on how Jimmy Garoppolo handle’s his return to New England, but the key for the 49ers will be slowing down the Patriots running game. If the defense forces Cam Newton into long down and distances, San Francisco should take care of business today.
