Saints vs. 49ers

Record-setting quarterback Drew Brees gets all the publicity, but the Saints are no slouches when it comes to running the ball, finishing sixth in the league in rushing this season. New Orleans' rotating cast of running backs torched Detroit in the Wild-Card round, rushing for 167 yards and three touchdowns in the Saints' 45-28 win. They'll face a much tougher test in San Francisco on Saturday -- the 49ers defense gave up the fewest rushing yards in the league in 2011.
