Niner Noise hands out grades for the SF 49ers after their dominant Week 7 win over the Patriots.

For the SF 49ers, it was a simple matter on the road in Week 7. They came, they saw and they conquered at the New England Patriots.

The 33-6 victory over Pats head coach Bill Belichick and Co. cannot be understated given the injury problems the Niners have had virtually everywhere, including some additional injuries from this particular contest.

Yes, the Patriots were banged up, too. But that still shouldn’t take away the sheer domination from San Francisco. The team went up 7-0 after the first drive of the game and were never seriously threatened after that.

The Patriots didn’t even make it to seven points for the entirety of the game, making that opening touchdown the Niners’ game-winning score.

49ers fans, remember how quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo was “protected” earlier in the season after a poor performance.

New England would also “protect” quarterback Cam Newton after a SF 49ers defense missing it’s two best edge rushers, a starting linebacker, its best corner and both starting safeties absolutely stymied him.

It is absolutely incredible to consider how amazing San Francisco has been as underdogs in the last fortnight, and the team will need to hold onto that as the team will almost certainly be underdogs for the foreseeable future with a brutal schedule ahead.

But that’s something to look at in the future, for now let’s look at the grades and analysis from the 49ers’ dominant 33-6 blowout of the New England Patriots.
