    Week 2: Saints @ 49ers

    The 49ers started the scoring off on there first drive of the game with a Joe Nedney 50 yard field goal then after the defense forced a 3 and out the new acquired free agent Justin Miller took the punt back 67 yards for a 49er touchdown the Saints would respond with a 47 yard field goal by Garrett Hartley. Defense dominated the early part of the 2nd quarter but with 3 minutes left in the half Frank Gore ran for a 56 yard touchdown. The Saints responded quickly with a 27 yard touchdown pass from Dree Brees to Adrian Arrington but the 49ers would march down the field and with 29 seconds left Frank Gore walked into the endzone from 5 yards out. At the half the score was 24-10 49ers. The 49ers got the ball after the half but the drive wouldnt last long as Alex Smith would be sacked and fumble the ball right into Alex Browns hand and he would return it for a touchdown. After the miss fortune on the last drive Alex Smith and the niner offense would settle down and put a nice drive together unfortunately it ended with a Joe Nedney field goal. It was 27-24 going into the 4th and the 49ers were looking to run the clock and get out of there with a victory but the were forced to punt and give the ball back to Dree Brees and that potent offense. Brees led them down the field and threw a strike to Robert Meachem in the corner of the endzone with 3:53 left in the game and that would be all she wrote as the 49ers offense was shut down and there defense couldn't stop Reggie Bush on a 3rd down attempt that sealed the victory for the Saints 31-27. Next week the 49ers will look to get there first win on the road against the Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium.
