49ers win shootout with Saints 48-46 to move to 11-2

Getty Images

Forty-six was not enough.

The Saints scored a go-ahead touchdown with 53 seconds remaining, the fourth lead change of the day, and had the 49ers on the ropes with a fourth-and-two with 39 seconds remaining. But New Orleans missed on two two-point conversions, including one after their final touchdown, and the 49ers kicked the game-winning field goal on the final play.

Jimmy Garoppolo hit George Kittle on for a 39-yard gain on that fourth-and-two play, with C.J. Gardner-Johnson missing a tackle that would have ended the game. Marcus Williams added a facemask penalty at the end of the play. It set up San Francisco in field goal range.

Robbie Gould kicked a 30-yarder as time expired to give the 49ers a 48-46 victory in the game of the season in the NFL.

The teams combined for 94 points and 981 yards. The Saints punted once, threw an incompletion on a fake punt that they thought they should have gotten defensive holding and Alvin Kamara lost a fumble. The 49ers punted three times and Garoppolo threw an interception.

The other 16 possessions ended in points.

The 49ers, who lost a 20-17 heartbreaker to the Ravens on the final play last week, moved to 11-2. The Saints fell to 10-3.

Tre'Quan Smith scored on an 18-yard pass from Drew Brees with 53 seconds left in what looked like it was going to be the game-winner, but Garoppolo and Gould had the last say.

Garoppolo finished 26-of-35 for 349 yards with four touchdowns and the interception. Brees went 29-of-40 for 349 yards and five touchdowns.

  1. Karma, beating Sean Payton in big games ever since he got back from his yearlong unplanned vacation!

    Kittle is a manchild

    Funny a Seahawks fan saying that when you have Pete Carroll and his gum. And then you have Wilson and his rah rah speeches. Anyways. Great win and best game of the year. Jimmy G put that team on his shoulders. Your move, Seattle.

    Kittle is a manchild.

    ——————————————

    Get ready for that “manchild” to make your defense look silly in week 17.

  4. Kittle battled a facemask for 10 yards and still dragged the dude with him for extra yards. Epic game even though another blatant PI not called. I’m sure Payton will let us all know about it.

  5. One has to wonder about the flags on 3rd down Everytime the saints get a stop. Was a great game by both teams. Best team of the year. What happened to these teams defenses today? Both will go deep in the playoffs no doubt

  6. Wow. What a great game. I thought this was going to be more like last week’s 49ers Ravens game, not like last year’s Chiefs and Rams shootout. I’m kind of hoping to not have to face the Saints again in the playoffs. Very good team.

  7. Now lets get some things straight. Went 2-1 in toughest 3 game stretch this late in the season in nfl history. Won when the defense played great and offense ok. Won when offense played great and defense ok. Won running. Won passing. Jimmy just balled out to win this one after everyone said he couldnt. Keep making excuses!! 11-2!!!!!

    49ers!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!BEST TEAM IN THE NFL. PERIOD!

  8. Watch this thread, all the Jacked up Boonies that troll every post about the 49ers, will be nowhere to be found. Go RAMS!

  9. As I’ve stated we are marching to six. Jimmy will get us there. We had close games with the other 2 best teams in the league. We will continue forward and we will win it all. #goniners #nobodyhasitbetter

  10. 49ers!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!BEST TEAM IN THE NFL. PERIOD!

    You might want to wait until Week 17 before making that statement. Russell Wilson owns your team! Seahawks will be the #1 seed, but thanks for beating the Saints… it was a great game.

  11. I thought jimmyG was the weak link?
    Great game on the road in the loud super dome of the saints. Much respect to the saints. They are a great team and have a fee

  12. those missed extra point attempts always seem to come back and bite you in the close ones . . .Saints just kick that one earlier, and then they are kicking another one to go up 3 at the end, and they’re still playing.

    Fun game. Hawks need to hold serve tonight.

  13. HOW DOES IT FEEEEEEEL TROLLHAWWWWWWK FANS

    JIMMY G CAN’T WIN THE GAME!
    JIMMY G CAN’T LEAD HIS TEAM DOWN TEH FIELD!
    JIMMY G IS THE WORST QB IN THE NFC WEST!

    HOW DOES IT FEEL TO ALWAYS BE WRONG!

    ALL HE DOES IS WIN AND SHUT UP ALL THE HATERS ON HERE AND IN THE MEDIA!
    HE IS COLD BLOODED AND RELISHES IT!
    KEEP IT COMING TROLLS, THAT IS WHAT YOU DO FOR A LIVING!

    Yeah because the saints didnt get two bailout penalties on their go ahead drive. Keep searching pal. Your boys loar but they are a good team in a great spot

  15. Peyton’s arrogance in going for two early on doomed them. You can’t leave points out there in what is essentially a playoff game.

  16. Payton needs to light a fire under his DC, that unit is reverting back its 2015 form. He also needs to figure out how to get Kamara engaged a lot earlier.

    49ers are going to need more than tricks when the playoffs start because they won’t see the same bone-headed plays like the Saints made including a pretty questionable unnecessary roughness penalty.

  17. We should be undefeated if our kicker makes both fg’s in the last minute. Our two losses are by a combined two fg’s in the last seconds of the game. All the other teams have been blown out in atleast one of their losses. Niners are the best team in the nfl. Nobody is going to blow us out. We can beat anybody anywhere. We have a great qb, great rbs, great defense even though we gave up over 40 points today. We were down by two tds but we never quit. Nobody wants to see us in the playoffs. Niners are the most complete team. Keep on hating on jimmyG and he will keep delivering in the clutch and winning games. Good game saint fans. This loss don’t make the saints and bad team. It couldve went either way. A close war like this makes both teams better and battle tested and prepares you for a tough game in the playoffs.

    We?

    What’s your jersey #?

  19. pdway you are so right!!! a great game but what a glaring example of the ridiculousness of the “GREAT” analytics.going for 2 in the first half is and always will be wrong regardless of what some egghead says.missing that one then forced another one late to try to make it a 3 point game.then the late field goal would have merely tied the game.Im sure Sean Payton knows more about football than I do,but that was out thinking himself.quit trying to be cute and re invent the wheel.

  20. The Niners winning gave Seattle the inside track to the number one seed. Nobody else was going to knock the saints out of it.

    Tonight is no easy task for the hawks, but if the Seahawks can somehow win it then they will be the #1 seed in the NFC and it will be thanks to the niners.

    Enjoy all the Niners fans in this thread who show up after wins. You should be here for the losses too.

  21. Unfortunately, I didn’t get to watch this game. Maybe some one can fill me in the call the refs blew that cost the Saints the game. The Saints only lose because of blown calls, right? I’m sure it wasn’t some bone-headed move by Payton, like going for two when it wasn’t needed.

  22. Also, I saw the last two Saints drives extended by questionable calls on 3rd down, one after a 49ers sack. This game would have been over way sooner if the refs didn’t bail New Orleans out. 49ers had 10 penalties against, Saints had 4. Saints had no flags in the entire first half. Those are facts.

  23. redandgoldhitman52 says:

    ==

    And we (insert your favorite team here) would be undefeated if only we’d scored more points than the other team every time we lost.
    Missed field goals are part of the game. The NFL is neither horseshoes nor hand-grenades, therefore silly what-if scenarios don’t carry the slightest amount of weight.
    Your very talented Niners are what their record says they are: 11-2.

  24. 49ers best team in the league??? They are not the best team in their division. They are the #5 seed in the playoffs in the NFC. Likely will have to go on road to play Cowboys or Eagles and I bet that they would lose that game. FYI: Not Seahawks fan at all, just stating the facts at this time.

  25. more horrible officiating….and who are these whiners still talking about Bountygate ??? Oh it was the season that no players were said to be involved after a through investigation by the NFL & outside sources…these “fans” sure are funny…they just can’t let it go after 10 years….

  26. Jimmy G: 26-35, 349 YDS, 4 TD, 1 INT that wasn’t his fault. I hear all about how the Niners D has gotten them this far, and “make Jimmy beat you.”

    He did DAT. Geaux Niners.

  27. For those crying about the penalties. San Fran had 10-67 while New Orleans had 5-50 just stop

  28. Fun game. We know our defense has issues, although they’ve been good this year. SF should be concerned that they got 46 laid on them and never touched Brees.

  29. I see the 49ers are continuing their decades-old tradition of dirty head shots on the Saints best players and also committing soccer flop like acting jobs to get penalties that shouldn’t be.

    Oh well, life ain’t fair and the 49ers will always be the referee’s favorite. Never changed, never will, that’s just the way it is.

  30. As far as penalties, by the way, it was more the headshot that knocked out our TE when he was killing it. That was a problem.

    Is Payton still on the sidelines whining about holding on his botched punt fake?

    ——————————————————————————-

    It was holding, and there’s no way in hell any sane person with halfway decent vision can argue otherwise.

    (clearly NFL referees do not fall into the above categories fwiw)

  32. Best team won. Had nothing to do with Refs. If anything PI call on Sherman was a bad call, and the PI that put the Saints on the 10 with less than a minute was a bad call. Say what you want Saints fans. You didn’t get robbed Saints you got beat by a better team, that made more big plays than you did.

    ==

    The world would be a better place if all of us stopped dwelling on our differences and focused on the few things we have in common.
    For example, Saints and Vikings fans could stop the endless argument over Bountygate and bond over the fact that both franchises came into existence in the 1960s, and to this day neither has ever lost a game to anyone but the referees.

  34. Saints gave this game away with poor coaching decisions. Just kick the PAT. Don’t get cute. Not that I wanted the Saints to win. Just stating it how it is, they should have won. This is on Sean Payton and Brees.

  35. Saints offensive line played great today, but the 49ers D made some big plays in the 2nd half. Bosa was great and Brees got some key pressures at the perfect time. Game ball goes to Garappolo. Dude made some huge throws today and he’s the reason we walked out with the win

  42. It’s on Brees, Bob? He just torched what we are told is the greatest defense in chinstraps. All we heard all week was a stationary QB like Brees was going to get killed. As for Sherman not committing PI, that’s pretty funny. When he was playing for Sea against you, did he not commit PI? I do find it unlucky that we keep getting players knocked out with headshots.

  43. Lol. I try to compliment one of your players and you’re to insecure to even accept it. I could’ve mentioned that trash defense that’s falling apart or old man Charmin popping a hammy…thank you for the win because Seattle is now in complete control of their own destiny.

  44. That Cook TD wasn’t a TD. See Zach Miller’s negated TD. I don’t want to hear NO fans ever whine about the refs. Zach Miller’s TD was WAY more of one than Cook’s. NO fans are biased and blind when they get homer calls though. Who dey? A joke with a whiny coach that ruined the flow of the game with PI reviews.

  45. Flow of the game? You watch commercials? On that play, why was a head shot not called? Knocked him out of the game.

  46. Jacked up boonie and Jmethane can troll all their shehawk anti Garappolo garbage they want. Garappolo has been playing at a high level all year. Garappolo made some huge throws today, and out performed Brees to win the game. Can’t wait till that last game, when the 49ers go up to Seattle and beat Denzel Wilson and the overrated Shehawks. Go Rams and Niners are the best TEAM in the NFC period!

  47. Kamthechancellor thinks Niner fans want to hear his back handed comments? Nobody cares about Shehawk fans and their opinions. 49ers Defense made enough plays to win, against a Saints offensive line that’s world’s better than the Seahawks O line. Only one that will be insecure is u Kam when you lose tonight and get beat at home on week 17.

    _________________________

    Actually, this played out exactly ow we were hoping…the 9ers did us a HUGE favor by eliminating the tiebreaker the Saints had over us. Now all we have to do is beat the Rams tonight, and the ‘hawks will be the number one seed.

    Either way, just hoping it comes down to game 17.

  49. Hard to decide who’s worst.
    9ers fans, Aints fans, Pucker fans, Vikings fans. Seahawks fans can be a little annoying too but they aren’t even in the same strata as those other 4.

    ******************************

    This is just your NFC list, right? RIGHT?!? Surely Patriots fans are the worst, and Raiders fans deserve honorable mention

    Seahawks fans worse than Saints fans too. I am a lifelong Seahawks fan and I cringe hearing from about half the fanbase

  51. And help me out, how is “Denzel Wilson” supposed to be a dig? One of the handsomest, most talented, bankable stars for 30 years. I hope it catches on, I am definitely going to use it now. Far superior to DangeRuss, or Miracle-Bubble Boy

  52. As a niner fan I was so mad at the refs in th we’d first half. No flags on the saints despite some really obvious holds and blocks in back. The two holds on Kamara’s 18 yard run were atrocious and the ticky tack block in the back on Sa ders made it worse. Niners got the benefit of two freak plays, but correct calls in the 3rd. But then the refs wrongly called Sherman when he clearly bumped for only five. Then they let sanders get held for 5 yards on the niners last drive. Overall the refs went the way of the Sai ts; but the niners persevered and blocked out the noise to get it done in crunchtime.

  53. As a niner fan I was so mad at the refs in the first half. No flags on the saints despite some really obvious holds and blocks in back. The two holds on Kamara’s 18 yard run were atrocious and the ticky tack block in the back on Sanders made it worse. Michael Thomas almost took Witherspoons head off when he shoved him in the back headfirst into traffic. Niners got the benefit of two freak plays, but correct calls in the 3rd. The OPI was ticky tacky on thomas but was a makeup for when he tossed garris to the ground earlier. But then late it all wents for the Saints again- the refs wrongly called Sherman when he clearly bumped for only five. Then they let sanders get held for 5 yards on the niners last drive. Overall the refs went the way of the Saints; but the niners persevered and blocked out the noise to get it done in crunchtime. Karma still haunting the saints for headhunting Kyle William’s in the divisional playoffs….and glad the niners didn’t need the refs to bail them out like the Saints did in ’13 in the Drew Brees giraffe neck game when he got hit clearly in the shoulder by Ahmed Brooks.. a game that cost SF their division and first round bye and home field in the NFC Championship game.

  54. Seahawks fans need to stop acting like they are the real and final #1 seed. You’re going to win out until week 17, and the Niners are going to win out until week 17. You’re going to be tied and whomever wins in week 17 gets the #1 seed. All the running your mouth in the meantime is useless

  55. Clara will have more hits on the Seahawk game tonight than they have on their own. im guessing there will be missed holds, the hobbit will escape a lot, and Seattle will be lucky.

  56. 48ers headhunted and knocked out Pierre Thomas with a concussion in that same game but no word about that? Mouthbreathers

  57. The NFL is allowing the officiating to ruin the game. I’m 55 years old and have been watching football since the late 1960s and the officials today have to be absolutely blind or bought off. When is someone going to do some investigative work on these guys to see how many of them are betting on games? I had no dog in today’s fight (Raiders fan) but when players are allowed to blatantly hold another player for 35+ yards while running down field right in front of an official and that official not throw a flag, something is terribly wrong. This has happened time and again throughout this year (and last for that matter) and yet nothing is being done about it. To top it off, if any player or coach says anything about the officials or the officiating in the game they are rewarded with a hefty fine from the league. What’s that tell you? Wise up fellow fans, this game is as real as the WWF.

  58. Die hard Saints fan here… that game was two offensive mastermind coaches going head to head. Last team with the ball wins. Hats off to San Fran, they earned it.

  59. Wow, what a fun game. We probably had the officiating edge/advantage with some calls, but we still played well enough to deserve the win in my opinion. I think it’s pretty clear the niners saints and Seahawks are the class of the NFC this year. Best of luck saints fans, hope both teams are full and healthy if and when we play in the playoffs! Missing Dee Ford hurt us, missing Andrus Peat kinda cancelled it out. Best wishes to Cook as well.

  60. Seattle’s secondary looks like Swiss cheese tonight. Gurley is getting push as well. Looks like the Shehawks are getting set for a let down. Go Rams!

  61. Said it last week. If Seattle plays against the Rams like they played against the Vikings, they will get beat. Seattle’s biggest weakness is their secondary, and it’s showing tonight. Rams31 Seahawks 20. Niners are the Best TEAM in the NFC!

  62. I wouldn’t mind meeting up with Santa Clara in the playoffs. I think we can get over 50 points on that “defense” and it might be enough next time.

    All this talk from Niner “fans” who didn’t exist the last few years about how terrible the Saints defense is, but that swiss cheese defense of yours wasn’t much either.

    Hope we see you again…..

  63. Funny how this was supposed to be the best defense in the league. Saints had a starting O lineman out and was missing two of their starting LB. Niners had the convenience of two third down stops getting negated due to nonsense calls. Blown no call holding down the sideline for over 35 yards. Anyone who thinks the niners win that game without ref help and with a healthy linebacker core is crazy. And anyone who thinks either team is gonna win in the playoffs allowing over 40 points is CRAZY!!!

  64. Call against Sherman was nonsense and PI that put the AINTS on the ten with a minute left was ridiculous. Point is aints fans you lost because the 49ers were a better TEAM. San Francisco just got done limiting a offense that averaged over 40 points a game last week to 20 points. They still made enough pressure plays in the 2nd half to limit Brees, and let Garappolo win the game. Cry all you want about the Refs ain’t s it ain’t gonna do you any good. 49ers beat you because they are BETTER.

  65. Poor aints fans gotta keep pulling the ref card. Calls on both sides were bad. Saints didn’t excute when they had too, and Garappolo and Kittle put it away. 49ers are still the best defense in the league even minus Dee Ford and Tartt 2 pro bowlers. Who dat gonna beat the saints?? We dat!

  66. 49ers best team in the league??? They are not the best team in their division. They are the #5 seed in the playoffs in the NFC. Likely will have to go on road to play Cowboys or Eagles and I bet that they would lose that game. FYI: Not Seahawks fan at all, just stating the facts at this time.
    _________________________________________________________
    Stating what facts? Did you forget the Seahawks have a game tonight? Did the Seahawks forget they had a game tonight? Niners are the 1 seed right now, and that’s the “facts”.

  67. Wilson and Company look out matched tonight offensive line play is just plain bad and their defense can’t get pressure. Better suck it up Seahawks or week 17 isnt gonna be close.

    lame. your vaunted historical defense gave up 46 points and the only reason you won is because that was the kind of game where the last team with the ball wins and some bad coaching decisions to go for 2 early in a game where it was obviously unnecessary. you think the Saints are scared of you? LOL. This is a regular season game. It ain’t that big of a deal.

  69. Ahhh boy these poor Saints fans are really reaching today. All the 49ers do is win, and they are a BETTER team than the Saints. Yes you put up 46 but your defense was pathetic. 49ers Defense got you off the field in key spots. Sorry Aints but you need to suck it up and deal with the fact that you lost to a BETTER TEAM

  70. lost a lot of respect for the 49ers Sunday. That’s relatively speaking, because I didn’t have a lot for them in the first place. Fraudulent cheating organization that hurts players and gets referee service to win. Not scared of them on a level playing field, not even a little bit.

  71. Kudos to the Niners. I was there, and it was a great game. Extremely physical and competitive. And their fans showed up in force – but were good folks and enjoyed the Dome atmosphere. Hope we get to play a rematch in January – though it likely will be in Santa Clara!
