Before the Patriots host the Denver Broncos in the AFC Divisional playoffs at 8:00 PM ET, there's another NFL Divisional Playoff game to be played, when the 13-3 San Francisco 49ers host the 13-3 New Orleans Saints at Candlestick Park.

The 49ers represent the NFC's best remaining defense, but today, they will be faced with quite a challenge against the high flying New Orleans Saints. I'm pulling for the 49ers to make this a great game, but Drew Brees and the Saints offense are on a historic roll. The 49ers are a lot better stopping the run then they are stopping the pass, and while I think they put up a close fight for most of the game, I think the Saints pull away down the stretch.
