NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Emmanuel Sanders was a big reason the San Francisco 49ers narrowly won a 48-46 shootout against the Saints in the Superdome less than one year ago. He had slew of big plays including touchdowns receiving and passing.

Now Sanders is on the other side of the rematch and says he’s confident the team he’s on will win again. The injury-plagued 49ers are 4-5 and have an uphill climb to return to the playoffs only one season after advancing all the way to the Super Bowl.

The Saints have won five straight and sit atop the NFC South.
