“Sunday Night Football” entered overtime last week in a clash between an NFC West team and one of the teams in last year’s AFC playoffs. NBC is hoping to get an equally strong clash in NFL Week 7.
The home team in this competition is well rested after a pass. They had to deal with plenty of injuries to start the season, especially at the cornerback position, and also saw their quarterback resist in Week 5 due to a calf injury. Jimmy Garoppolo looks set to return in Week 7 which will give the team a higher floor against their opponent.
The visiting team have just scored a resounding victory, just their second of the season. Team quarterback Carson Wentz has thrown just one interception so far this year, which is good for the f among qualifying quarterbacks this year. It comes after he led the league with 15 picks last season, so it looks like he’s progressing now that he’s with Frank Reich again.
Reich and Kyle Shanahan will face each other in this duel of two powerful offensive coaches. So it should be a close and exciting game.

Who’s playing ‘Sunday Night Football’ tonight?
- Match: Foals at 49ers
- Site: Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, California.
The Colts (2-4) travel to Santa Clara to face the 49ers (2-3). San Francisco are just off a week off and will recover Garoppolo as quarterback after a calf injury kept him from playing in Week 5. Trey Lance started in place of Jimmy G , but he might not be available after injuring his. start.
Garoppolo will have to play well if the 49ers are to score. The Colts’ defense has been solid lately. They limited the hapless Texans to three points in Week 6 and kept the Ravens at nine points in the second half of Week 5 before cornerback Xavier Rhodes left the game. After that, Lamar Jackson led the comeback.
Rhodes is in good health now which will give the Colts a good chance to slow down the 49ers’ offense as he will work hard to contain Deebo Samuel. Meanwhile, George Kittle still has a calf injury, so the 49ers might need their tight end Ross Dwelley and No.2 winger Brandon Aiyuk to step it up.
Meanwhile, the Colts will be counting on Wentz to carry out their passing game. TY Hilton’s return has given him a boost against the Texans while Michael Pittman Jr. continues to perform well. Jonathan Taylor has also been hot lately, so the Colts will be looking to execute a well-rounded offense to beat the 49ers. San Francisco lacks depth on the cornerback, but they have a strong passing rush led by Nick Bosa.
