Week 10 of the season is upon us. We are now entering the second half of the season. Last week was the definition of a perfect performance. We need to carry that momentum into this week against San Fran. These are the Keys To The Contest.
Take Control Early
The Saints are heavy favorites in this game. The 49ers are without, Jimmy Garoppolo, Nick Bosa, and George Kittle to name a few of their big names that are out. This game could very well end up being a trap game. No one is expecting San Fran to have a chance. We need to come out and grab a hold of the game early. Ideally, this game would be put to bed by the end of the third quarter. A turnover on defense or an electric play on offense to get the train rolling would be perfect.
Play Clean Football
This game will likely be one where the 49ers can’t beat the Saints if the Saints don’t beat the Saints. The black and gold need to play clean football. We need to take are of the ball and keep the flags to a minimum. Turnovers and penalties will allow the 49ers to stick around and keep it close to the end. The Saints are electric when they take care of the fundamentals. Speaking of electric, hit up WAM Electric for all your electrical needs!
Get Michael Thomas Going
Michael Thomas has been riddled with injuries this season. He made his first appearance since Week 1 last week against Tampa. This week will be his third game of the season and it will be the perfect opportunity to build some momentum. As we get closer to the final stretch of the regular season, we’ll need MT13 clicking. This should be a great opportunity for Drew Brees and Michael Thomas to get the momentum going.
So, if the Saints can grab a hold of the game early, play clean football, and get Michael Thomas going, they should have no problem closing out week 10 with a win!
