Will New Orleans Strike Gold in San Francisco? 10 Questions as Saints Face 49ers

NFL Week One is in the books. Now, it's time to look forward to Week Two.

The New Orleans Saints survived its NFC Championship rematch with the Minnesota Vikings, and the San Francisco 49ers got thumped by the Seattle Seahawks.

The Saints played an ugly game but at least they didn't lose like Dallas, Indianapolis, San Diego, and Atlanta.

San Francisco, on the other hand, played an ugly game and there were no redeeming qualities about it.

Monday night's game is the home opener for the Niners and the first road game for the Saints.

There is a lot of history between these two teams.

The Saints and 49ers were divisional rivals from 1967 to 2001 and faced each other twice a year. The 49ers dominated the Saints and the division during that span going 45-18-2 over that span.

Since realignment, the Saints have won five straight in the series, four of which were at home.

The 49ers are looking to break that streak and avoid digging themselves a 0-2 hole.
