THE TEAM NEWS

CAROLINA PANTHERS

  • Carolina made it four wins in a row before their bye week as they improved to 4-2 when comfortably defeating Tampa Bay in London but now face an extremely tough contest as they travel to San Francisco to play the undefeated 49ers.
  • There had been hope that Panthers QB Cam Newton could return following his team's bye but Kyle Allen will remain under center with the veteran set to continue his rehabilitation from his foot injury with no pressure on a return.
  • OT Greg Little is still in the concussion protocol and is a doubt for this game but G Trai Turner and CB Donte Jackson were both full participants on Wednesday and look set to return to the team.

SAN FRANCISCO 49ERS

  • San Francisco were not deterred by the awful conditions as they edged Washington in a shutout victory to remain undefeated but face a tougher test this week as they host the in-form Carolina Panthers.
  • The 49ers had doubts over the availability of WR Marquise Goodwin and RB Matt Breida after the pair picked up knocks in last week's win over the Redskins but neither have appeared on the injury report and will suit up.
  • OT Joe Staley could hand the 49ers a huge boost after returning to practice for the first time since breaking his fibula in Week 2 and although this week may come too soon, there is optimism in the camp that he could feature.

THE PREDICTION

San Francisco moved to 6-0 thanks to another superb defensive effort in which they did not allow Washington to score a single point against them. They now host Carolina in what could be a tricky game with the Panthers winning their last four but the 49ers should be too strong and can remain undefeated. This could be the game of Week 8 if both teams play to their potential and although the Panthers can go close, the 49ers appear to be the better team.
