The New Orleans Saints are very much alive in the race for winning the NFC South, despite their 4-7 record. With that being said, they do need to start getting wins in a hurry to have a chance at catching the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who will be 5-5 going into Week 12.
The Saints right now are on the outside looking in when it comes to the playoffs, but they rank seventh in the league in net yards per play. This shows that they are playing better than their record shows. A huge reason for their disappointing record is that they are last in the league in average turnover margin at -1.1. The 49ers have also had a hard time in this area, and currently stand 22nd in average turnover margin at -0.1.
As strong as the 49ers defense has been, they’ve had a pretty hard time keeping their opponents at ease on third down, and currently rank 23rd in opponent third down conversion rate, which is below the Saints who rank 12th in the league. The Saints are also better than them in red zone defense, ranking in at fifth place compared to the 49ers at 22nd place.
The 49ers are definitely the better team, no one doubts that, but New Orleans have enough strength areas that the almost double-digit spread can’t be justified. The Saints are crazy for getting some wins on the board to fight for that NFC South title.
This is going to be a hard-fought and close game. New Orleans still have the playoffs in sight and will be looking rear eyed at the Bucs game, but they need to beat San Francisco in order to look ahead. Meanwhile, the 49ers have a better squad and have been playing better, but the Saints are going to take the win this time.
