                 === Hartley's FG lifts Saints past 49ers  ===
 
 New  Orleans, LA (SportsNetwork.com) - Sean Payton lit a fire under his kicker
 during  the week,  and Garrett  Hartley  responded Sunday  with three  fourth-
 quarter field goals, including the game-winner.
 
 Hartley,  who had  missed four of his previous six attempts and watched Payton
 bring  in  potential replacements during  the week,  drilled a 31-yard kick as
 time  expired to give the New Orleans Saints a 23-20 come-from-behind win over
 the San Francisco 49ers.
 
 The NFC South-leading Saints (8-2) benefited from a questionable personal foul
 penalty on Ahmad Brooks and limited the 49ers to 196 total yards.
 
 Drew  Brees passed  for 305 yards with  a touchdown and an interception in the
 win, while Colin Kaepernick was limited to 127 yards through the air.
 
 Kaepernick  threw  touchdown passes to Anquan  Boldin and Vernon Davis but was
 also  intercepted as  San Francisco (6-4) fell three games behind the Seahawks
 for NFC West supremacy.
