The 6-3 San Francisco 49ers and 7-2 New Orleans Saints stand a strong statistical shot at making the NFL postseason, and they might even meet at some point in January. Watch 49ers vs Saints online free live streaming on Fox by following the links you will find below to see the week 11 featured afternoon football game between a pair of NFC powerhouses.
For quarterback Colin Kaepernick and the 49ers, a return to the Superdome in New Orleans will bring back some rough memories of barely losing the Super Bowl this past February against the Baltimore Ravens. Before San Francisco can start thinking about a return trip to the big stage, they have to figure out what went wrong in a surprising 10-9 loss to the Carolina Panthers last week if they want any shot of defeating the Saints in their house.
San Francisco’s offense was on a roll before they faced the Panthers. They were scoring nearly 35 points per game over a five-game winning streak until last weekend, including 357.6 yards of offense per game. Then the Panthers defense stepped up and held the 49ers and Kaepernick to a low 151 total yards of offense, including sacking the elusive Kaepernick a season-high six times. They held Kaepernick to under 100 yards of passing as well.
The 49ers can get a kick start against the Saints if Frank Gore can get it going. Gore managed 82 yards against the Panthers despite no passing game, though he was held scoreless after scoring six touchdowns in his previous four games. The expectation is for Gore to break 100 yards and run for at least one touchdown today when we watch 49ers vs Saints online free live streaming on Fox this afternoon.
New Orleans improved their home record to 5-0 this season with a 49-17 blowout of the Cowboy last Sunday night. They now have outscored opponents 176-75 at home this season after compiling a huge 625 total yards and NFL-record 40 first downs against the Cowboys defense. It was a fantastic rebound game after they were upset 26-20 by the NY Jets and a rookie quarterback.
Drew Brees did what he did best against Dallas and put points on the board. He threw for four touchdown passes and 392 yards with no interceptions. The real beauty of the Saints win was the 242 yards of rushing they put on the board after coming in averaging only 79.8 yards per game on the ground. A Saints team with a running game to compliment Brees is a dangerous team to face.
Today’s NFL Sunday Football week 11 game between the San Francisco 49ers and New Orleans Saints will start with the kick off at 4:25pm EST / 1:25pm PST. Fox is the channel you will want to tune into to watch the game on TV so check those local listings, however an alternate viewing option available would be to watch the game on DirecTV’s NFL Sunday Ticket with Max here that allows you watch 49ers vs Saints online live streaming on phones, computers and other devices.

I would expect the 49ers to put more points on the board today, but I can’t see them taking down a hot Saints football team that absolutely embarrassed the Dallas Cowboys a week earlier.
