Saints 49ers preview
The New Orleans Saints were on the receiving end of a stunning overtime loss to the San Francisco 49ers. They led, 24-21, in the fourth quarter. They were just one play away from forcing a turnover on downs that would have ended the game.
However, 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick completed a 52-yard pass to wide receiver Michael Crabtree to set up a field goal, and kicker Phil Dawson drilled another field goal in overtime.
The Saints suffered their first loss at home as a result, and they will look to recover against the Cincinnati Bengals. Quarterback Drew Brees is having an underwhelming season as he threw two interceptions against the 49ers, increasing his season total to 10.
Running back Mark Ingram had another fantastic performance as he again took advantage of the absence of fellow running backs Khiry Robinson and Pierre Thomas. He ran for 120 yards on 27 carries.
Meanwhile, the Bengals are also looking to recover from a loss after being blown out, 24-3, by the Cleveland Browns on Thursday Night Football.
Quarterback Andy Dalton had the worst performance of his NFL career as he threw for 86 yards and three interceptions on 10-of-33 passing, which equated to a 2.0 passer rating.
The Saints offense will be too much for a Bengals defense that has regressed this year, and the Saints usually perform best at home.
Prediction: Saints 27, Bengals 21
