That was frustrating.

The San Francisco 49ers blew an opportunity to get back to .500 after losing 27-13 to the New Orleans Saints. The Niners turned the ball over four times and wasted a great performance by the defense.

San Francisco heads into its much-needed BYE Week at 4-6 and will likely miss the playoffs for the sixth time in the last seven seasons. The injuries killed any hope of a return trip to the Super Bowl, but there are no excuses for how the offense looked against New Orleans.

Here are some Twitter reactions to the 49ers loss to the Saints.

Again, the defense stepped up and held the Saints to a field goal:

And that was when the wheels started coming off the bus:

This would have been nice to see, Barrows:

The Niners were in position to retake the lead and these were the back-to-back play calls:

The Saints went ahead and the Niners never recovered:

How were the 49ers trailing at half time?

We all know what happened after this, so let’s summarize Nick Mullens’ second half:

How it ended:

Enjoy the BYE Week!
