The 6-2 New Orleans Saints look to continue their hot streak this Sunday against the San Francisco 49ers. Here is who is going to have to step up.

The New Orleans Saints have been hot as of late. They are now 6-2 after starting the season 1-2. They have beaten the division-rival Buccaneers two times and showed how dominant they can really be with a prime time 38-3 victory.

It shouldn’t stop there though. This week, they have the San Francisco 49ers to match up against. Last season, the Niners were NFC rivals with the Saints fighting for a top spot in the conference heading into the playoffs.

This season, the Niners sit at the bottom of the best division in football stacked with the Seattle Seahawks, Arizona Cardinals, and Los Angeles Rams. Even though the Niners are 4-5, they should still be looked at as a threat by the Saints’ team.

Everyone is going to have to play their part on Sunday. These specific three players though are going to have to play above where they have been. They have shown their potential; now, they are going to have to take it to a whole new level.
