Epic NFC clash goes right down to the wire under the Dome.
When two NFC powers go to battle… Of course it’s comes down to a walk-off FG! 49ers. Saints. HIGHLIGHTS: http://t.co/LWC5gDgrgi

Staggered by a shoulder pad to the head and ripped down by a forearm hit across the neck, Drew Brees was crumpled on the turf with blood on his chin.
Yet the vicious sack by San Francisco’s Ahmad Brooks also drew a flag that canceled out Brees’ lost fumble with 3:12 left and gave the Saints’ prolific quarterback one chance too many.
Brees guided New Orleans to two late Garrett Hartley field goals — the second as time expired — and the Saints upended the 49ers 23-20 on Sunday.
