49ers a big challenge for New Orleans Saints
METAIRIE, La. — The New Orleans Saints are still undefeated at home and have lost just three times all season. So it might be a bit of nitpicking to say the road could be a potential downfall.
“You win 13, 14 games now, and you’re trying to find something,” coach Sean Payton said yesterday. “When you start playing well on the road and home, you’re probably a better team, and we’ve been able to do that. This will be a good challenge for us. Not just playing on the road, but traveling west.”
After beating Detroit, 45-28, in the Superdome in the NFC wild-card round, the Saints will travel to No. 2 seed San Francisco for their game next Saturday. And of New Orleans’ three road losses this season, two were on natural grass, the surface they’ll play on at Candlestick Park, where the 49ers went 7-1.
“I think the Tampa Bay and St. Louis losses really helped us prepare ourselves on the road,” wide receiver Robert Meachem said.
The Saints, though, will have history against them.
