Fooch's Update: The 49ers WON!
The San Francisco 49ers travel to face the New Orleans Saints in a crucial Week 10 matchup. Both teams sit at 4-4, with the Saints leading the NFC South, and the 49ers sitting a game out of the final wild card spot. The 49ers have dropped two straight games, and are coming off an ugly 13-10 loss at home to the St. Louis Rams in which their offense could not get any sort of consistency. The Saints got a huge divisional road win in Week 9, defeating the Panthers 28-10 on Thursday Night Football. The Saints have won two straight, and might be rounding into form on offense.
Sunday's game will be broadcast on FOX, kicking off at 10:00 a.m. PT. The game gets FOX's No. 2 team, with Kevin Burkhardt and John Lynch in the booth, and Pam Oliver on the sidelines. The game gets a sizable broadcast around the country, with something like 75 percent of America getting the game. You can view the full broadcast map at 506sports.com.

The 49ers have lost two straight, and are looking to avoid three straight losses for the first time under Jim Harbaugh. More importantly, they sit at 4-4 and need to get back on the winning track. A loss to the Saints is not the end of the world, but it puts them in a big hole with another road game coming up against the New York Giants, as well as two Seahawks games and a Cardinals game. They need to get some Ws if they want to get further into the playoff picture.
