When the Saints head into Candlestick Park today to play the 49ers the question will be whether San Francisco's stiff defense can stop New Orleans' potent offense.
Last week in their Wild Card game with the Detroit Lions, the Saints put up 45 points, making that four straight games with 42 points or more.
The 49ers, on the other hand, have given up just 10.5 points a game at home this season.
The matchup between the two teams will mark the first playoff battle between the two franchises.
Playing into San Francisco's favor, the Saints have never won a road playoff game, going 0-4 in franchise history, and all three of their losses this season came on the road.
For the 49ers a win would equal their first postseason victory since 2002, the last time they appeared in the playoffs.
