NFL Playoff Prediction: San Francisco 49ers Conquer the New Orleans Saints

Look for more of of the same on Saturday.

The pivotal matchups, advantages vs. disadvantages and keys to victory in the divisional playoff game between the 49ers and Saints have been well documented throughout this week.

And rightfully so.

Predictions will also abound on this particular Friday before the game on Saturday.

Again—certainly for good reason.

Will most sports writers’ predictions call for the Saints emerging victorious? Absolutely.

But how many will make that, oh, audacious pick of the Niners? Far fewer, to be sure. (Excluding the homer population.)

While I cannot fully sublimate my homerism tendencies, I confidently predict that the San Francisco 49ers will defeat the New Orleans Saints.

Note: This is not a mere “keys to victory” piece. While it does highlight them, it makes the prediction—including the final score—and is not satisfied with hypothetical “what ifs.”

Here’s how it goes down.
