Last season it was maybe the game of the year when the Saints and 49ers dueled it out in the Divisional round of the playoffs.
Sunday, the two teams hope they can re-create that kind of excitement when the two teams meet in a huge NFC showdown in the SuperDome in New Orleans.
Right now there’s a huge question mark for the Niners, as there’s still no word on if it will be Alex Smith or Colin Kaepernick starting at QB for San Fran.
Smith made some huge throws in the 36-32 win over the Saints in the playoff game last season, including a 14-yard touchdown pass to Vernon Davis with nine seconds left.
The Niners QB is likely to sit with a concussion he suffered Nov. 11 against St. Louis. Kaepernick impressed in his first career start, going 16 of 23 for 243 yards with two touchdowns and no turnovers against a Bears defense that had forced 30 in its first nine games.
