NBC NATIONAL NEWS — The next round of the NFL playoffs is set, and the first game is this weekend between the 49ers and your New Orleans Saints.
The game this Saturday at Candlestick Park in San Francisco. The 49ers have been in a nine-year playoff drought.
The 49ers know they've got an uphill battle when it comes to stopping Brees and the stellar offense.
"That's the most glaring thing when you look at this offense is they have weapons everywhere,” Jim Harbaugh, 49ers Head Coach, says. “It's hard to say ‘if we stop this guy we'll win the game,' or 'we'll play great on defense,' they have a lot of guys you have to stop, you've got to stop their offense."
“They are playing fantastic,” he adds. “They are big the physical tough don't miss tackles. If you give them opportunity they will take the ball away.
