Saints vs. 49ers Recap: Saints Lose to 49ers in OT 27-24

New, comments

Another close game that came down to the final minutes, another Saints loss. Looked like the 49ers wanted and needed this win just a little more than the Saints did. Another disappointing chapter to an already disappointing season.
