Frank Gore ran the ball 19 times for 83 yards as the 49ers (8-2-1) logged their second straight win.

The 49ers' Donte Whitner and Ahmad Brooks helped out on defense with interception returns for touchdowns.

The Saints (5-6), meanwhile, saw their three-game winning streak snapped despite three TDs and 267 passing yards from Drew Brees.

The New Orleans quarterback also surrendered the two interceptions, however, and was sacked five times.
