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.
