2. 49ers improve to 7-0

Just when it seemed like the San Francisco 49ers couldn’t get any better, the team went out, and made a solid deal by acquiring Emmanuel Sanders from the Denver Broncos.

With the 49ers currently being the only remaining undefeated team in the NFC, San Francisco made a huge statement in regards to Sanders to show they’re all in for making a run at the Super Bowl.

While the defense deserves a ton of credit for working their way into becoming one of the top units in the league, Jimmy Garoppolo’s impressive play on offense has been amazing to witness as well.

After barely getting by the Washington Redskins last Sunday in a game that featured some of the sloppiest conditions, the 49ers face another difficult challenge for Week 8 with the Carolina Panthers coming to town.

Even though the Panthers aren’t undefeated, Ron Rivera’s team has found a way to turn things around by winning four in a row after a disappointing 0-2 start.

But if the 49ers want to continue making statement in the NFC, a win over Carolina is another perfect way to do so.

It’s not going to be easy, but San Francisco seems ready for the challenge to make sure that undefeated streak stays alive.
