Prediction:

The 49ers are out to prove that their early season success isn’t a fluke while the Saints are trying not to fall too far behind the rest of the NFC South. New Orleans is banged up with WR Marques Colston and TE Jeremy Shockey expected to miss Sunday’s game. San Fran’s defense is young, but if it can stay away from giving up the big play, they have a shot to pull off the upset. Still, New Orleans has enough weapons to beat the Niners, especially at home and even if the defense has been suspect over the past three weeks. We predict the Saints over the 49ers 33-30.
