2. This 49ers/Saints game could arguably be the game to watch

Another year, another trip to the Mercedes Benz Superdome in Louisiana for the 49ers. It could be an even field if fans aren’t in attendance, but it’ll make for an even more exciting game.

These two teams had one of the games of the decade when the 49ers squeaked out a two-point victory to essentially secure the top seed in the NFC.

We’ll all remember the pass from Garoppolo to tight end George Kittle on fourth-and-two. Kittle then rumbled for what seemed like 100 yards, with about five Saints players on his back and shoulders. Add on a face mask penalty and the 49ers sealed the deal.

The Saints managed to steal away Emmanuel Sanders in free agency, allowing quarterback Drew Brees to have Sanders, fellow wide receiver Michael Thomas and running back Alvin Kamara in his arsenal.

For some reason, this Week 10 game is scheduled for a Sunday afternoon. It should be a Sunday night matchup because all eyes in the NFC will be in this game.

Just like the games against the Packers and Cardinals, this bound to be high-scoring affair could determine playoff seeding in the NFC.
