Here are three things I learned Sunday:
1. The Saints are on fire. They dominated the Raiders offensively and defensively. The Saints have won five of their last six games. Their offense looks balanced and explosive and nearly unstoppable, and they’ve been without RB Darren Sproles, who will most likely return from a hand injury against the Niners Week 12. That’s going to be a tough matchup for the Niners, because the Saints are a much better team at home than they are on the road.
2. Although they seem to match up well against the 49ers, the Rams really aren’t a good team. They got clobbered by the New York Jets today, 27-13. The Rams have not won a game since October 4th.
3. If the 49ers win on Monday night, they’ll have the 2nd best record in the NFC. If they lose, they’ll have the 4th best record in the NFC.
