    Defense wins playoff games and Superbowls. 9ers only need to score 23 to beat the best foe.

    The Saints vs 49ers will be the best and most telling game of the playoffs! After all, you’ve got the best offense against the best defense. Turnovers will tell the tale. I say, miners by 3 points.

      I would not be too sure about that. the packers have a few important players injured, but the packers have those holes filled. don!t feel “sorry” for the packers, they don!t need sympathy.
