For anyone looking to get their minds off of the Cleveland Browns' loss earlier today to the Washington Redskins (the post-game thread can be found here), feel free to join the Sunday Night Football open thread as the San Francisco 49ers take on the New England Patriots. This game features one of the best teams from each conference, but more is at stake for the 49ers considering they have the Seahawks on SNF next week.
