The San Francisco 49ers will be aiming to halt a six-game straight up and against the spread losing streak Sunday afternoon when they take on Drew Brees and the surging New Orleans Saints at Levi’s Stadium in a Week 10 NFL game.
The injury-plagued 49ers could really use a victory to turn around its season, but the Saints are playing really good football.
The New Orleans Saints welcomed Michael Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders back to the offense in its most complete and dominant performance of the season, a 38-3 throttling of Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, intercepting Brady three times and holding him scoreless.
After nine weeks, the Saints are ranked 7th in passing offense defense-adjusted value over replacement (DVOA) at 32.0 percent, 12th in rushing offense DVOA at -5.9 percent, and 4th with 30.3 points per game. New Orleans’ defense is 9th in passing defense DVOA at -2.3 percent, 5th rushing defense DVOA at -32.0 percent, and 14th with 25.0 points allowed per game.
