SAN FRANCISCO: The 49ers have a big, man-blocking offensive line and frequently use either a fullback or a second tight end. The backfield is a committee, but there are plenty of touches to go around. Frank Gore is still the leader, getting a feature back workload for all intents and purposes, and Kendall Hunter will spell him in their more traditional looks. They'll also run a ton of zone read stuff for Colin Kaepernick, and will use second-year man LaMichael James in those packages more frequently. Converted defensive end Bruce Miller is strictly a blocker at fullback. Marcus Lattimore will likely have a redshirt year. It's a lot of play-action, pistol formations and a lot of moving around for Kaepernick. His No. 1 target Michael Crabtree will be sidelined until at least December, and is more of a possession receiver, while TE Vernon Davis is going to stretch the field more often than either starting receiver. The Niners don't use a lot of three- and four-receiver looks, but they could rotate A.J. Jenkins into the game more often to provide more long speed on the outside. Mario Manningham is a question mark for the start of the season coming off torn knee ligaments. Gore takes about half their touches inside the 10 and will maintain goal line duties. They will let Kaepernick do his thing near the goal line. The 49ers defense was truly elite last year (17.1 PPG allowed, 2nd in NFL; 294 total YPG allowed, 3rd in NFL). It might be even better in 2013 after adding CB Nnamdi Asomugha, rookie FS Eric Reid and DT Glenn Dorsey. DEs Aldon Smith (19.5 sacks) and Justin Smith are both healthy, and ILBs NaVorro Bowman (148 tackles) and Patrick Willis (120 tackles) comprise the best linebacker duo in the NFL. CB Tarell Brown (13 PD) is an underrated corner and SS Donte Whitner provides quite a wallop when making a tackle.
NEW ORLEANS: The Saints are a pass-heavy offense, but they feature one of the NFL's most versatile and unique running games. They have a series of looks they can run out of, the most common of which is Mark Ingram behind fullback Jed Collins. They use a series of zone and man blocking schemes borrowed from other systems. Darren Sproles is on the field a lot, but primarily in spread formations from which the Saints almost always throw. Most of his touches will come on receptions. Pierre Thomas is the team's most versatile back. The return of head coach Sean Payton should be a nice boost for Drew Brees and the passing game. This is a spread passing attack, with a lot of West Coast routes. Brees is most comfortable with Marques Colston, who does a lot of his work facing the line of scrimmage. They'll also use TE Jimmy Graham as basically a receiver 1A, moving him around in formations and having him work underneath or up the seam when the matchup is right. Slot receiver Lance Moore also did more work up the seam last year, though he only plays about 60 percent of snaps. Joe Morgan will take Devery Henderson's field-stretching role on the outside. The Saints are very pass-heavy in the red zone, throwing on a league-high 71.2 percent of their goal-to-go plays in 2012. The Saints gave up 908 more yards than any other NFL team, setting a league record for futility with 7,042 total yards allowed. They also surrendered the second-most points (28.4 PPG). New defensive coordinator Rob Ryan inherits a defense that recorded just six sacks in the final six games. There are still productive veterans in ILBs Curtis Lofton and Jonathan Vilma to lead the front seven, but two newcomers must have a huge impact right away, former Steelers CB Keenan Lewis, and versatile rookie FS Kenny Vaccaro.

*49ers-Saints Preview* ======================


The last time the San Francisco 49ers took the field at the Superdome, they made a gutsy second-half comeback before falling short in the Super Bowl.

Based on New Orleans' home dominance, the challenge for the 49ers to come out ahead could be even tougher when they return to the Big Easy on Sunday to face the Saints.

San Francisco (6-3) appeared to be on the wrong side of a blowout when it trailed Baltimore 28-6 early in the third quarter of Super Bowl XLVII. However, the 49ers overcame a power outage inside the Superdome and rallied to get within two points in the fourth before losing 34-31.

Though a return to New Orleans should certainly bring back memories for those 49ers who lived it, the team's collective focus is on trying to bounce back from a frustrating 10-9 home loss to Carolina last Sunday. That likely won't be easy against a New Orleans team that owns a 176-75 scoring advantage at home, where it improved to 5-0 after a 49-17 rout of Dallas last Sunday night.

"We've got a tough game coming up, and we're not going to wallow in (the loss to Carolina)," 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh said. "We're going to move on to New Orleans."

A week after suffering their second loss in three games, 26-20 to the New York Jets, the Saints (7-2) recorded an NFL-record 40 first downs and regular season team-record 625 yards against the Cowboys.

"You don't play many games like that, and every once in a while you find yourself on the good end and sometimes you find yourself once in a while on the bad end," New Orleans coach Sean Payton. "You hope when your career is done you have more experiences on the good end."

Drew Brees was 34 of 41 for 392 yards with four touchdowns and no interceptions. Meanwhile, a running game that came in averaging 79.8 yards gained 242 - the franchise's highest total since 1990 - behind a career-best 145 on 14 carries from underachieving third-year pro Mark Ingram.

"It's important for us to have that balance," Payton said.

Brees has completed 74.4 percent of his passes and averaged 367.2 passing yards while throwing 18 TDs and two INTs - including none in the last three games - at home this season.

New Orleans averages 463.6 yards and 35.2 points at home, but it could have trouble reaching those marks Sunday.

The 49ers are fourth in the league allowing 17.2 points per contest and have yielded an average of 11.8 in six games since giving up 28.0 per contest over the first three.

San Francisco's biggest issue, however, is trying to get its offense back on track against a Saints team that's right behind the 49ers allowing an average of 18.1 points. The 49ers averaged 34.8 points and 357.6 yards during a five-game winning streak that ended when they totaled 151 against the Panthers.

Colin Kaepernick threw for 91 yards with an interception and was sacked a season-high six times.

"The way we look at it is as a unit. Offensively, we didn't play well enough to win the game," Harbaugh said. "Across the board, we take accountability for that and have fingerprints on it. I'm not going to go through and dissect position by position, raking anybody over the coals. I don't think that's the best thing for us."

Harbaugh added: "I think their mindset will be what it's always been, it's a blue-collar mindset. That involves fixing things, building things, sutures in our hands and the weapons are in our hands, our fate is in our hands."

Frank Gore was perhaps San Francisco's lone offensive bright spot while running 16 times for 82 yards, but he failed to reach the end zone after scoring four times in the previous two contests. Sixth in the NFL with 700 yards, Gore has averaged 91.5 and 5.4 per carry in his last four games against the Saints, including one from the playoffs.

Mario Manningham had three catches for 30 yards in his first action since injuring his knee Dec. 23.

The 49ers hope tight end Vernon Davis can play after he and rookie safety Eric Reid each suffered a concussion last Sunday. It's also uncertain if receiver Michael Crabtree will make his season debut after suffering an Achilles injury in May.

Crabtree set career highs last season with 85 receptions for 1,105 yards and nine touchdowns and the release of wide receiver and return man Kyle Williams may have opened the door for his return.

San Francisco has won two straight over New Orleans, including 36-32 in a divisional playoff game Jan. 14, 2012 that snapped the Saints' six-game series winning streak.

In the 49ers' 31-21 win at New Orleans on Nov. 25, Kaepernick threw for 231 yards with a touchdown, an interception and ran for a score. Brees threw three TDs, but his two interceptions were both returned for touchdowns.
