Code below will pick the first Sunday on or before the @base_date + @days_back:

DECLARE @base_date datetime
DECLARE @days_back int
SET @base_date = GETDATE()
SET @days_back = -7

SELECT
    DATEADD(DAY, (DATEDIFF(DAY, 6, @base_date) + @days_back) / 7 * 7, 6) AS start_date,
    DATEADD(DAY, (DATEDIFF(DAY, 6, @base_date) + @days_back) / 7 * 7 + 6, 6) AS end_date
