The Sunday night football game in week seven has the potential to be a Super Bowl preview. The suddenly surging San Francisco 49ers will travel to the Mile High city to take on Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos.

The 49ers are off a short week as they toppled the lowly St. Louis Rams on Monday night football. The 49ers stumbled out the gate and were trailing 14-3 against the Rams before turning it on in the second half and winning big.

The 49ers got impressive play from their field general who seemed to come to life in this game, especially when he was on the move. Colin Kaepernick has a 2.2 QBR outside the pocket against the Rams. This season his QBR outside the pocket is 75.1, and he has thrown 5 of his 7 pass touchdowns outside the pocket. The 49ers can’t afford to fall behind in this game as the broncos will make them pay.

The Broncos are off a win on the road against the New York Jets. This was a letdown spot for the Broncos but they managed to shake off a slow start and not only win, but cover the point spread in the impressive win. Although it should be noted that the Broncos needed a pick six near the end of the game to cover the spread. The last minute win and cover sent shockwaves through the Las Vegas sportsbooks as one of the biggest losses of the week.
