New Orleans Saints fans voted the team’s game against the San Francisco 49ers on November 9 at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome as the regular season game they would want to attend the most this season, in a poll on the team’s website last week.
The 49ers contest received 39 percent of the 1,340 votes. Behind the 49ers battle, the Week 1 matchup at the Falcons (20%) and Week 8 game against the Packers (16%) rounded out the top three.
The Saints and 49ers will meet for the 74the time in the regular season. Including the NFC Divisional Playoff following the 2011 regular season, the two clubs have met in each season since 2010. The only other team the Saints have faced more often are the Atlanta Falcons (89 meetings). Although San Francisco leads the series 46-25-2, New Orleans has won seven of the last eight regular season meetings.
