San Francisco 49ers vs. New Orleans Saints Preview and Predictions

A battle of two talented teams. Yes.

A rematch from last year's NFC Playoffs. Yes.

The best air attack against the best overall defense. Yes.

But, the matchup between New Orleans and San Francisco at the Super Dome entails much more than meets the eye. At 5-5, the Saints aren't out of the woods just yet following an atrocious 0-4 start to the season, including a loss to the aimless Chiefs. The schedule for the boys on the bayou gets much more difficult from here on out, so a loss to the 49ers would serve as a major setback.

Drew Brees will bring the Saints' electric attack up against a defense that's stingy at worst and completely immovable at best. That San Francisco defense will be keying on repeating its Monday Night performance against the Bears, which featured 5.5 sacks by Aldon Smith and just seven points scored by the Cutler-less Chicago offense.

This clash of two different styles should be a dandy in New Orleans. Find out who wins and why in this video.
