Week 7 will be treating us with Jimmy Garoppolo facing his former team, the New England Patriots. After a brutal loss to the Miami Dolphins in Week 5, Jimmy Garoppolo led the San Francisco 49ers to victory on Sunday Night Football over the Los Angeles Rams in Week 6.

Garoppolo is now 3-0 versus the Rams as a 49er and will look to pick up another big win this weekend against the Patriots. The Patriots on the other hand, are coming off a bad loss to the Denver Broncos in a game in which the audience saw a lot of field goals. The return of Cam Newton was spoiled by Drew Lock and the Denver defense.

This week, both teams are fighting for survival in their divisions and will be eager to win this matchup. Both teams are similar in the sense that they like to run the ball on offense and play solid defense. The 49ers defense has been shorthanded all year, yet they continue to play really well. The Patriots defense plays smarts and physical.

The San Francisco 49ers are currently in last place in the NFC West and are entering a tough stretch in their schedule. Their next 5 games consist of the Patriots, Seahawks, Packers, Saints, and Rams.

Here are five bold predictions for the San Francisco 49ers in their Week 7 matchup against the Patriots.
