What a difference a week makes as now New Orleans, the top team in the NFC and in pursuit of its sixth straight victory, hosts San Francisco stumbling through its season.
The Saints (6-2) had one of the most impressive victories this season last week in completely dominating Tampa Bay in 38-3 fashion. Wide receiver Michael Thomas made his first return since an injury and suspension sidelined the All-Pro target after Week 1. Thomas didn’t have quite the expected impact, only catching 5 passes for 51 yards. In Thomas’ absence, the offense has run through running back Alvin Kamara who ranks third in the NFL with 60 receptions and seventh in the league with five rushing touchdowns.
Despite 2020 being a nightmare season for the 49ers (4-5), they are still squarely in the playoff picture even with a litany of injuries the team has had to overcome. Nick Mullens has started the last two weeks in place of the injured Jimmy Garoppolo and has averaged over 264 yards a game and has thrown three total touchdowns. Even while losing stars like Joey Bosa and Solomon Thomas, the 49ers’ defense still ranks seventh in the NFL allowing 324.7 yards a game.
The last time the Saints and 49ers met was a classic, with San Francisco defeating New Orleans 48-46 in December 2019 to decide which team would be the 1-seed in the NFC. The Saints have won 7 of the last 10 against San Francisco.
