10* NFL Playoff Pounder
New Orleans vs. San Francisco,
01/14/2012 16:30 EDT,
Score: 32 - 36
Point Spread: +4/-115 San Francisco
This is the Saints first road game in a month and 3 of their last 4 road games were indoors in a dome. This is a true outdoor road game against a team with 2 weeks to prepare. Also, New Orleans is a much different team on the turf and the SF defense will keep them in check. The Saints offense put up over 600 yards last week and didn't even punt. They'll come back down to earth tonight! This was a 3 pt game late in the 3rd quarter and the 49ers defense is 5X as good as Detroits.
New Orleans won’t be able to run the ball as successfully in this match-up as the 49ers allow just 77 yards per game on the ground, best in the NFL. San Francisco also owns the best turnover margin in the league and that has been an area of concern for the Saints at times. The 49ers have a great team and great coach and they'll take care of business here tonight.
