49ers top Saints 13-0, first to blank New Orleans since 2001


San Francisco's defense set the tone from the opening drive, forcing New Orleans Alvin Kamara to fumble and holding the star running back to a total 13 yards rushing for the game. The mission accomplished Nick Bosa says the defense expected the saints to try to get their run game going, but shut it down. And whenever you do that, it's going to be a really good chance of making a team one dimensional. Jimmy Garoppolo through the game's only touchdown in a 13 zero victory as San Francisco became the first team to hold New Orleans scoreless in nearly 21 years. The forty-niners improved to 7 and four alone atop the NFC west. The saints fall to foreign aid. I'm Ben Thomas
