A classic matchup of contrasting styles kicks off the divisional round of the NFL playoffs on Saturday at Candlestick Park.
Led by a record-shattering season from quarterback Drew Brees, the New Orleans Saints boast the most productive offense in the league.
Their hosts lean heavily on the NFL’s fourth-ranked defense, which features three All-Pros and grit to spare.
The NFC West champions last hosted a playoff game in 2003. The Saints, meantime, have never won on the road in the postseason in four tries.
So who has the edge with a spot in the conference title game on the line?
