Welcome to Niner Noise’s 49ers live game thread for San Francisco’s Week 7 matchup against the Colts. Discuss the game with writers and fans in the comments section!
After a much-needed bye week, the 2-3 San Francisco 49ers host the 2-4 Indianapolis Colts under the lights of Levi’s Stadium on Sunday Night Football. The 49ers’ important Week 7 battle kicks off at 8:20 p.m. ET on Sunday, Oct. 24, 2021, at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, CA.
In addition to being played under the lights, tonight’s game will also feature difficult playing conditions due to abnormal rain and wind. Both teams need a victory today if they expect to play deep into January 2021.
Not only will the Niners be forced to deal with adverse playing conditions, the team will also have to play without their best offensive player, left tackle Trent Williams. Rookie quarterback Trey Lance is also inactive for Sunday’s matchup, but original starting quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo will be back under center after missing the last two games.
