The San Francisco 49ers will try and get back to .500 on the season when they take on Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints. The two teams played a thriller in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome last year, but the injury-ravaged Niners are missing several key players.

Left tackle Trent Williams, plus receivers Brandon Aiyuk and Kendrick Bourne return to the lineup after missing last week’s loss to the Green Bay Packers due to the league’s COVID-19 policy.

New Orleans has won five games in a row and sits on top of the NFC standings. The 49ers are 4-5 and need to win if they want to make a run to the playoffs.

This is your first half open thread.
