The 49ers knew that this week was going to be a tough test. The Saints were on a roll and at home, but San Francisco played well in all phases and survived an overtime thriller.
Colin Kaepernick completed a 51-yard pass on fourth down to sustain a tying drive in the final minutes of regulation, Ahmad Brooks sacked and stripped Drew Brees in overtime, and Phil Dawson kicked a 35-yard field goal to cap San Francisco’s stirring 27-24 victory over New Orleans on Sunday.
The 49ers hit the road this week to take on the New Orleans Saints. New Orleans started slow but has turned it around and will look to keep their winning streak alive. San Francisco has lost two straight and face a must win.
The Saints are coming off their best game of the year after hammering Green Bay 44-23. However, they have not won a road game this year. The Panthers are hoping to continue that trend, and they will be bringing back a familiar face in running back DeAngelo Williams.

NFL training camps have opened up, leading to the most optimistic time of the season – every veteran looks five years younger, every player coming off an injury looks more explosive than ever, and every […]
By Alex Darcey August is a week away, which can only mean one thing – your fantasy football draft is rapidly approaching. As a fantasy footballer, the next few weeks will be spent cramming as […]
It may not be the Beast Quake, but Marshawn Lynch had another great game against New Orleans in the Playoffs as Seattle was able to outlast the Saints 23-15 and advance to the NFC Conference Finals next weekend.
The New Orleans Saints played a much better game on defense as they faced off with the Seattle Seahawks this time, but there were plenty of other problems. It was a hard-fought effort and a really good season, but the road woes have got to stop.
Seattle shouldn’t hope to follow the same route to as their previous victory over New Orleans if they want to advance to the NFC title game next week.
