The San Francisco 49ers have relied on their trusted defense to help suffocate opposing offenses early in the game, but Jared Cook and the New Orleans Saints have managed to break through the vaunted unit and take an early lead. Cook was on the receiving end of a Drew Brees touchdown pass that put the Saints up 7-0 in the first quarter.

Brees and the Saints aren't the least bit intimidated by the the 49ers and their pass rush, and New Orleans has an early lead on Jimmy Garoppolo and San Francisco.
