The New Orleans Saints (8-2) survived a 23-20 scare at the hands of the San Francisco 49ers (6-4). After numerous penalties and mental mistakes, the Saints were able to get the game-winning field goal in the waning moments.

San Francisco was bottled up for the duration of the game, only managing 127 yards through the air and 81 yards on the ground. 

Saints' quarterback Drew Brees went for 305 yards, as the ground game gobbled up 92 yards of its own. This win shows the Saints can be just as physically dominant as some of the most physical teams in the league.

The Saints must clean up the self-inflicted wounds, but have the look of a Super Bowl favorite. Up next is the 2-8 Atlanta Falcons on Thursday Night Football. 

There's no rest for the weary.
