The last time the Saints and 49ers met
Below is a look back at the last time the Saints and 49ers faced off on September 28, 2008 at the Louisiana Superdome. The Saints won that afternoon 31-17 on a sterling effort from QB Drew Brees. While many things have stayed constant there have been numerous changes with the two clubs since this meeting. The Saints now crowned Super Bowl Champions have four new starters on defense. For the 49ers, Mike Noaln was relieved of his duties shortly hafter the loss and now Mike Singletary is at the helm of San Francisco. Below is the recap of that game.
New Orleans, La. – In the end, it was a game of numbers for the Saints.
Deuce, Tres, Quatro and Seis being the most important numbers of the day for the Black-and-Gold as they rolled to a 31-17 win over NFC foe San Francisco.
On an afternoon that marked the triumphant return to regular playing time for all-time Saints’ leading rusher Deuce McAllister, it was the number 3 that played an equally pivotal number in keying the Saints’ victory, as Drew Brees threw three touchdown passes. In all, the Saints’ four touchdowns on the day, coupled with three takeaways by the Saints’ defense and six sacks all added up as the Saints evened their record at 2-2 after the first month of play.
“I thought as a team we played inspired football and played hard,” said Head Coach Sean Payton in his post-game press conference. “I though we rushed the passer very well today, and Drew played well. It was great to see Deuce get in there and be what we knew he could be.”
