In years past the 49ers Saints game was must-watch TV, an argument that not everyone would make today as the two 4-4 teams face off in the Superdome. While the Saints have won two in a row, the Niners have dropped two straight and have performed horribly on the offensive line. As we watch San Francisco 49ers New Orleans Saints online free live stream today, the door is open for a Saints defense that’s picking up.
San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick has been a dangerous dual-threat quarterback for three seasons. For the past several weeks that’s changed, in part because his offensive line hasn’t even given him time to think about whether to pass or run. Kaepernick has been sacked 14 times in the past two weeks, eight of which came last week against the Rams.
The Saints average just over two sacks per game, which isn’t a lot. But against the 49ers’ struggling offensive line, New Orleans may pad that number as we watch the 49ers Saints game online free. The Niners QB finished last week’s game with 237 yards on 22-of-33 passing, in line with what we can expect to see the Saints allow today. Kaepernick and RB Frank Gore shouldn’t expect to run much though; the Saints are 10th in the league in rushing defense.
New Orleans as a home field was kind last season to QB Drew Brees. Though the Saints this year haven’t been as potent, Brees has begun finding his groove with TE Jimmy Graham (shown above), Marques Colston and rookie Brandin Cooks. RB Mark Ingram is also hitting his stride, having rushed for 172 yards two weeks ago against the Packers and 100 yards last week against the Panthers. They’ll all need to be on their game today, with the 49ers defense owning the third- and fifth-best stats against the pass and run.
