Player of the Game: Drew Brees

If there's any NFC defense that can slow down Drew Brees, it's Patrick Willis and the 49ers. The question is whether the 49ers offense can score enough points to keep up. According to the "Madden" simulation, San Francisco's offense shocks the Saints, with Frank Gore running for 114 yards and two touchdowns, with his second score boosting the 49ers to a 27-23 lead late in the fourth quarter. But that's when Brees goes, well, all Drew Brees on the defense, leading his team downfield, then watching as Pierre Thomas busts through the line for the game-winning two yard run.
