San Francisco 49ers vs. New Orleans Saints GameThread - NFL Divisional Playoff

If you ask me, this afternoon's matchup between the San Francisco 49ers and New Orleans Saints is the most intriguing divisional-round game scheduled to play this weekend.

On one hand, you have the hosting upstart 49ers, coached by Jim Harbaugh, playing a smash-mouth, old-school style of football where a ball-control, power running offense and a stingy defense dominate the day.

On the other hand, you have the rolling Saints, featuring the most prolific passing offense in NFL history, the hottest quarterback in the game in Drew Brees, and bearing the burden of being just about everyone's "upset" pick to win Super Bowl XLVI.

This is going to be a fun game, folks. (Or, rather, let's hope it is. After three 17-plus-point blowouts last weekend, the league is due for a far more competitive round of playoff football.)
