The 49ers head into New Orleans to face the Saints as they start a stretch of four road games in five weeks. The 49ers have done some solid work thus far this season, but this stretch of five weeks could make or break their hopes for a first round bye.
Two weeks ago the big storyline would have been this being the rematch of last year's divisional championship round of the playoffs. Instead, Alex Smith's concussion against the Rams has opened up a huge can of worms. We've seen plenty of speculation, but all signs points to Colin Kaepernick getting the start against the Saints. It will be a second straight significant challenge for the second year quarterback, but it should make for some good TV.
Speaking of which, you get the joy of Joe Buck and Troy Aikman calling today's game on FOX. It is the afternoon national game of the week, so most of us outside the Bay Area will get the game. The only people not getting it are in San Diego and the Cardinals and Rams broadcast regions. You can double-check your region at the506.com.

49ers vs. Saints Odds
The 49ers initially opened as 2 1/2 point favorites. When the quarterback situation got a little weird, the line came off some sports books. Now, the line sits somewhere between a pick 'em and the 49ers as one-point favorites. All bets are off I suppose!
